Kugel is a baked pudding or casserole, most commonly made from egg noodles or potato. It's a traditional Jewish dish, often served on Shabbat. I made a new twist on the classic potato kugel with these sweet potato kugel cups, perfect for parties or events. Not only do sweet potatoes taste delicious, but they are also jam packed with vitamins.
