Sweet Kugel recipe to serve 2 people

I make this once a year, for Rosh Hash, but my recipe calls for a pound of this and that and there are only two of us. Yes, the larger size serves me very well for the following breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, but I'm really trying to cut down on these extra servings and don't want it lingering in my freezer. Again, too easy to eat. So, does anyone have a recipe for a SMALL kugel? TIA

Barb48 -
I often have a similar dilemma.
What I do with recipes which include eggs (whether something like kugel or even a cake) is reduce them by a factor of the # of eggs.
For example, I have two reliable sweet kugel recipes - one traditional with raisins, and one slightly different with pineapple. Each uses 6 eggs and serves 12 people.
To make for 2, I cut all the measurements in 6, use a smaller pan (or cocottes, to bake individual portions), and reduce the cooking time.
If you have a kugel recipe you like, you could do the same.
If not, let me know whether you prefer raisins or pineapple, and I'll post one of the recipes, scaled for two people.

Oh, I’d love the recipe with raisins, with your reduced measurements, if you have time to post. Thanks so much!

Thank you, Nancy! In the “old” days, serving for 12 would be fine with me = 2 or 3 for the other person, remaining ones for me!
And happy new year to you, as well.
Oops, didn’t see any salt in recipe so obvs there isn’t any? Just double checking.

You will get some residual salt flavor from the boiled noodles.
No other salt in my notes or memories of making this many times.
But you could always add a pinch, if you want that contrast with the sweet flavors.
