Pumpkin Kugel #SundaySupper

Pumpkin Kugel
Pumpkin Kugel brings fall flavors of creamy pumpkin and crunchy pepitas to a simple noodle pudding recipe.
Years ago I worked in a Deli. It started out as a Jewish deli with all the trimmings. We carried sable, lox and pickled herring, knishes, tongue and of course, kugel.
Few items passed my twenty-something taste buds with flying colors. One of those was my boss’s sweet kugel.
Kugel, also known as noodle pudding can be made sweet or savory. We offered several versions in house. Raisins and cinnamon was my favorite.
Kugel can also be made with matzo or bread. I’ve only tasted it with noodles so I’m a bit partial.

Today’s Sunday Supper is all about my orange friend, pumpkin.


Simple Pumpkin Recipes #SundaySupper
Before we know it, September is going to be over… and into October we’ll go, straight to the pumpkin patch! Stores are already stocking up for Fall, whether it’s your local supermarket with pumpkin-themed baked goods and shelves of early Halloween decorations or your neighborhood coffee shop brewing up pumpkin spice coffee.

Naturally, we want to keep up and get involved in the pumpkin-themed fun! For this Sunday Supper, dish out your best simple pumpkin recipes. We want simple pumpkin recipes from breakfast to dessert and everything in-between, snacks and drinks included. Keep it simple and have fun!

Do you remember this simple pumpkin song?

Me neither, but I thought it was cute!

Pumpkin Kugel seemed like a natural recipe for this week’s event. Creamy pumpkin helps coat these tender noodles. I added pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds to give it a bit of crunch! I can’t believe how good this recipe turned out. Don’t take my word for it.

    I’ve never had a traditional kugel either, but I’d be happy to try a big helping of your pumpkin version!!!

    I love this recipe, Cindy. I grew up in NJ near NYC and I miss good Jewish delis. What a great idea to make a pumpkin version of kugel. Those pepitas are the perfect crunchy topping.

  9. I have never had kugel but I am definitely interested to try it, especially with pumpkin in the mix.
