“from the feb '05 issue of gourmet, this is a different presentation for kugel, as it bakes in a cupcake tin, great for portion control. UPDATE!!!!! Erindipity made this for freezer tag today, 3/08 and added this info, thanks so much-- "To freeze: I cooked as directed before allowing to cool. Wrap individulally and freeze. To serve: Place frozen kugels in a muffin pan. Add a small amount of water into the remaining muffin tins. Cover will foil and bake at 350 for approximately 20-30 minutes or until warmed through. "”
