Holiday Apricot Kugel


"I first came across this recipe while visiting my wife’s family in Buck’s County, PA. It goes great with Thanksgiving dinner as a side dish. The original recipe was savory and comes from Eastern Europe and dates back more than 1,000 years. This particular recipe is most likely a variation of a recipe brought over to the new world by German/Dutch immigrants."
