top the kugel

serious Oct 6, 2008 04:07 AM

I'm making a noodle kugel and have searched and selected several recipes that I'll combine. I need a crunchy topping. Those I've selected suggest as one of topping ingredients, crushed corn flakes. I wish something that doesn't depend on packaged 'product.' Suggestions appreciated.

    I make noodle kugel all the time and when I bake mine, the top layer of noodles get nice and brown and crunchy. I can't imagine adding anything else for a crunchy topping.

      Bread crumbs, Panko, fried onions (you could fry them yourself if you want)... or just broiling the top so the upper noodles are crunchy

        I top mine with sliced almonds.
