Our hearty, homey kugel is just sweet enough to eat as a dessert, but it would also be right at home as a side dish or brunch option.

Serves 12-15
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 60 minutes

Vegetable oil cooking spray
4 whole-wheat matzo sheets
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 tsp orange zest (optional)
4 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste
2 Gala, Cortland, Golden Delicious or Jonagold apples
2 Bosc Pears or firm Bartlett Pears
1/2 cup golden raisins or dried cranberries (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and lightly spray an 13" x 9" baking dish with cooking oil.
2. Core and thinly slice the apples and pears. (You may wish to quarter the slices for easy serving.) Set aside about 8-10 slices for the garnish.
3. Break the matzo sheets into pieces and soak in a bowl of water until soft. Drain the pieces in a colander, mashing to squeeze out excess water.
4. In a separate bowl, blend the eggs, salt, orange juice, orange zest (if using), brown sugar, oil and cinnamon. Add the soaked matzo, and mix well.
5. Gently fold in most of the apple and pear slices (reserving the garnish) along with the raisins or cranberries (if using).
6. Evenly spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish, placing the reserved apple and pear slices down the center of the casserole.
7. Bake, covered in foil, for 45 minutes before removing the cover, lightly spraying the kugel with cooking oil and returning it to the oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
