To be honest, I didn’t really know what kugel was until quite recently. And to continue that level of honesty, I’m still not sure I fully understand it. Should I serve it with ice cream or beside a pot roast? Is it a dessert or a side? Is it served warm or cold? So many questions with highly debated answers. The only thing I’m really sure about when it comes to this dish is that it is darn tasty.
