Sure does sound MARVEY! Would be great with a side salad and some bread for a light dinner. I love the idea of cooking/baking and serving it in the cast iron pan. CHEERS, CC

This kugel was so much fun to make. My first one ever! I posted a picture. I made it in a glass baking dish sprayed with pam. As you can see a corner is missing where I tasted it! It baked up beautifully. Thanks so much!
