    i modified this recipe after reading the reviews. i used one box of matzo, crumbled. i added one lb sliced and sauteed mushrooms and two diced onions, also sauteed in butter (can use margerine). I added one "box" of chicken broth heated(since others said the taste was disappointing). i let this cool and added 3 beaten eggs (to hold it together). i added about 1 teaspoon of thyme and salt and pepper (to taste) i baked this covered in a greased 9x13 inch pyrex casserole at 325 (COVERED) for one hour. there was one very small square left after the seder!  -  24 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I sauteed garlic with the onions and mushrooms and drained most of the liquid out before adding to the farfel. I also added 2 beaten eggs to the mixture before baking. The kugel was delicious!!!  -  16 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very simple to put together, but in the end it was a very simple taste. Adding some more spices and seasonings will certainly liven this dish up.  -  21 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
