  1. Boil the noodles in salted water until just tender and drain. Fry the onion in 3 tablespoons of fat or oil until soft. Cool a little, then mix with the eggs and noodles. Add a little salt. Line a loaf pan or mold with greaseproof or wax paper or foil and grease well with remaining fat. Pour in the noodle-and-egg mixture and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until firm and lightly brown on top. Turn out, peel off the foil, and serve hot cut in slices.

  2. This recipe yields 6 servings.

  3. Variation: For a sweet and peppery Israeli version add to the above ingredients 1/2 cup sugar, 4 tablespoons raisins, and 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly-ground black pepper.
