Kugel

You know the age old "is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable"? Well, I've got one even more intriguing. Here goes. What the heck is kugel (if you're not Jewish, you might want to skip to the next blog)? Is it a side dish or a dessert? It's definitely sweet, no doubt about it. But it's not quite sweet enough to be called dessert in my book. It's sort of in a similar predicament as the sweet potato. Too sweet to be a true starch yet too boring to be served after the main dish. It will always be second fiddle to a good baked alaska and to garlic mashed potatoes.

Maybe NOODLE kugel's a tweener but POTATO kugel is the genuine stuff, and there's no doubt where potato kugel belongs--right in between the flanken and the tzimmes.
