Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Ultra Creamy and Rich Sweet Noodle Kugel

Noodle Kugels are new to me and I think I hit the jackpot with this recipe. It was fantastic, I can't stress that enough. The ratio of the custard to the noodles was perfect.

When I was researching recipes, I knew I wanted a recipe that had fewer noodles and a bit more custard. I went with a sweet graham cracker topping which was the perfect accent.

Serve warm and enjoy!

Ultra Creamy and Rich Sweet Noodle Kugel
Makes a 9" deep dish pie plate

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cooked egg noodles (cook 1 cup dry noodles according to directions on package, drained and rinsed with cold water, or toss it lightly with butter.)
  • Topping:
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees
  2. Prepare the filling: In a food processor blend the melted butter, cream cheese and eggs. Add sugar, milk and vanilla and blend well. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add the cooked noodles. Stir gently to combine. Pour into a greased deep dish pie dish.
  3. Prepare the topping: Stir the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together and mix well. Sprinkle over the uncooked kugel. Don't worry if it seems to sink a bit, it should rise to the top as it bakes.
  4. Bake for 50 - 55 minutes, or until set. I baked it in a water bath but if you try baking it regularly, please let me know how it turns out.

  1. I've only ever made one kugel and I didn't like the recipe. Yours looks delicious, so maybe I need to give it another go. I think I would like more custard, less pasta as well.

    1. I hope you do. When I made this I also made a totally different kugel recipe (with more noodles) to see the difference in texture. This one here is the winner - so very good.

    2. Carlee. If you do less noodles & more custard, then it is not Kugel. LOL..If you like raisins then put maybe a 1/4 cup or so of those in. try this one first as it is, bet you will like it.

  2. Interesting. I've never heard of this. Sounds really tasty though!

  3. How long do you bake this for?

    1. Apologies for leaving that part out. I updated the recipe.

  4. Could this be fine if cooking the night before and then reheating the day of?

    1. Yes I think so Adam. I thought the leftovers were just as delicious the next day. I would be careful if you bake it a second time. Personally I haven't tried that, I reheated it the 2nd day in the microwave. So I would just be careful not to bake too too long on the reheat. Good luck :)

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!
