"Most kugels are loaded with sugar and dairy products. This simple family favorite is savory and is the prefect accompaniment to roast chicken." — Basg

This is a great recipe for a simple side dish. I added some fresh garlic to the onions to give it a bit more flavor, and that was nice. It also seems like an easily altered recipe for any additional flavors like meats, cheeses, and/or vegetables.
I was looking for a dairy-free kugel recipe, as I didn't have any of the cottage cheese or cream cheese on hand that most kugel recipes seem to call for, and I came across this. I think it baked for 5 minutes too long, as the top was a little crispier than I would have liked, so next time I will reduce the cooking time or cover it until the last 5 minutes. I was afraid it would be dry, so I added an extra egg and 1 T sour cream. The flavor of the browned onions really shone; I might increase those next time. Good, simple side dish, and a great way to use up leftover egg noodles!
