A proper Thanksgivukkah feast must have noodle kugel, doctored up with Thanksgiving flavors like pecans, cranberries, and brown sugar.
The nutty, semisweet, and slighty sour kugel is sure to clear fast at the Thanksgivukkah feast, but if leftovers remain, this particular recipe tastes even better cold the next day, sliced up for breakfast.
Read on for the recipe.
Feel free to substitute the nuts and dried fruit with any of your liking.
Add cinnamon, nutmeg, or other warming spices for even more Fall flavor.
