Matzo Kugel for Cholent I (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: About 8

2 eggs, beaten (klopped)
1 cup matzo meal
Salt to taste
Onion soup mix

Mix everything together and form it into a loaf shape. It should be stiff enough to hold together, but not hard as a rock. Add matzo meal if it feels too loose or add a bit of water if it seems too hard.

I add it to the cholent after it's up and cooking and about half an hour to an hour before Shabbat. It has to be cooked about a third before putting it on the blech (hotplate) at licht-benchen (candle lighting) time. Try to submerge it but keep it close to the top. If your cholent is too thick to submerge it, then flip it over just before Shabbat so it cooks through.

To serve: Take it out and slice it.

Poster's Notes:
I received several requests for the cholent kugel (or knaidl) that I make. Yes, I do share recipes. It's a kind of hit or miss, but I'll do my best to recreate it.
