New Mom Broccoli Kugel 2 stars (not the recipe’s fault)
Ease of Preparation: 4 stars
Cost: 5 stars
I learned a new word this week: Kugel or crustless quiche. This was another recipe that I was really looking forward to making. It seemed easy enough although my onions never did turn “dark brown.” I finished whipping this together
and put it in the oven.
As the instructions said, I put the timer on 90 minutes and forgot about it. My family was starving and kept asking me how much longer. When there were 22 minutes left, my husband got impatient and looked in the oven.
The picture does not convey how burnt it actually looked. My mom would have said that it’s not burnt it’s brown, but my heart sank just the same. It was my first disaster.
Even as we ate it, we couldn’t help but think how good it would have been had it been cooked correctly. Once you cut off the burnt pieces, the middle tasted pretty good, which is why it got 2 stars even though it was burnt.
I will definitely make this again. I will adjust the time that I check it to about 45 minutes though.
