  • Author: Millie Brinkley
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Caramelized onion and cabbage noodle kugel is a comforting, rich, and savory side dish that goes perfectly with roasted, grilled, or barbecue meats.



1 medium onion, halved and very thinly sliced

1 pound bag shredded coleslaw mix

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

6 ounces medium egg noodles

½ cup sour cream

½ cup onion and chive cream cheese

1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese

2 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly butter a medium casserole dish and set aside.

Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the onions and cabbage. Toss to coat the vegetables with the oil and butter.

Saute, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until the vegetables soften.

Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes to prevent sticking. 

The onions and cabbage should be very caramelized and soft.

Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the package directions.

Drain well and add to the skillet with the vegetables.

Add the sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and eggs in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.

Spoon the mixture over the onions and cabbage in the skillet and toss until all of the noodles and vegetables are coated with the custard.

Pour the mixture into the buttered casserole dish.

Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until the top is lightly golden brown.

Serve hot.
