1. Cottage Cheese Noodle Kugel (Dairy):

This Dairy Noodle Kugel is old-fashioned in character, easy to make, and pleasing to both adults and children.

2. Fruit Noodle Kugel (Parve):

Most sweet noodle kugels are dairy, but this is a parve Fruit Noodle Kugel that can be served with meat. This is the perfect kugel to serve before a fast, like Yom Kippur, because it is sweet, parve and high in carbs.

3. Jerusalem Kugel (Parve):

Jerusalem Kugel is a caramel-pepper noodle pudding that is traditionally eaten at the Jewish Sabbath lunch meal.

4. Broccoli Kugel (Parve):

This Broccoli Kugel, provided by Paula Levine Weinstein and Julie Komerofsky Remer of Columbus, Ohio, is one of those easy, versatile, sure-fire success recipes that should be in the recipe box of every kosher cook. This souffle can be pareve or dairy, and it can even be made kosher for Passover.

5. Vegetarian Vegetarian Kugel (Parve):

This savory, pareve, Vegetable Kugel is a favorite among vegetarians who keep kosher. When made with matzo meal instead of flour, this kugel is a favorite among vegetarians who keep kosher for Passover.

6. Rice Kugel (Parve):

This Rice Kugel is made with cooked rice, eggs, cinnamon, raisins, and chopped nuts.

7. Carrot Kugel (Parve):

While many carrot kugels are really carrot cake in disguise, this kosher parve Carrot Kugel has a definite kugel quality about it. The flavor of this honey-sweetened kugel is dominated by carrots and complemented by lemon rind. The egg whites add a light touch.

8. Tsimmes Kugel (Parve):

Cookbook author Sara Finkel calls her Tsimmes Kugel recipe "a modern version of two traditional Shabbat favorites - tsimmes and kugel." The recipe, which comes from her bestselling book Classic Kosher Cooking, combines sweet potatoes, apples, and carrots to form a big hit.

9. Traditional Potato Kugel (Parve):

Potato Kugel, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside, is a staple of Eastern European Jewish cooking. While there are many variations of potato kugel (which add carrots, zucchini, garlic...), this Basic Potato Kugel recipe is still my favorite.

10. Lite Potato Kugel (Parve):

This collection of top kugel recipes has to include at least one low fat kugel. This Lite Potato Kugel recipe contains few egg yokes and no oil.
