Aunt Reba's Matzo Kugel
Stirring up matzos for this recipe also stirs up fond memories of our family seders at my in-laws, Inez and Maurice’s home with all the kids, cousins and Aunt Reba’s delicious matzo kugel. This recipe adds just that special touch of sweetness to the meal. If you’re a fan of sweet kugel, you’re gonna love this!
