Low Fat Noodle Kugel Recipe for Channukah by Fashionable Hostess_1

Happy Channukah! Today I am whipping up one of my favorite Jewish side dishes, a healthy Noodle Kugel to celebrate the Holiday. I swapped out the usual heavier ingredients for low-fat cream cheese and skim milk, and seriously it still has all the same delicious flavors! So whether you are hosting Channukah at home for friends or you are planning to head to a dinner party to celebrate, this is the perfect dish to make! Happy Noshing {on something with a tad less guilt than usual!}.

  • 2 8-ounce packages of egg noodles
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 16 ounces low-fat cream cheese

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 cups skim milk
  • 3 cups Corn Flakes cereal mixed with sugar
