Just In Case Potao Kugel

Every time I think of making potato kugel, my mind goes through the following: I love it, Do we need it? If its there, I'm going to eat it. If it's not, everyone's going to miss it. I convince myself that I use less oil in the kugel that I use in roast potatoes. Then I start craving it, needing it and, before I know it, the grater's in my hand and the kugel's in the oven!


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 6 large potatoes, peeled
  • 2 large onions, peeled
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 Tbsp cake/potato flour (or matzah meal)
  • 2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chicken stock powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup oil or melted schmaltz


1.  Preheat the oven to 375 Deg. F.
2.  Grate the peeled potatoes and onions either by hand or in a food processor.  Alternate between grating the two, as the onions help prevent
     the potatoes from going brown.
3.  Mix well and pour into a sieve, pressing down on the potato and onions to get rid of any excess liquid.
4.  In a large bowl, combine the potatoes and onions with the eggs and mix well.
5.  Add a tablespoon at a time of the flour or matzo meal and stir thoroughly.
6.  Add the salt, pepper, chicken stock powder and baking powder and mix well.
7.  Pour the batter into a lightly oiled roasting pan, drizzle the oil or schmaltz over the top and bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or
     until golden brown.  You can reduce the heat and allow it remain in the oven until ready to serve.  There’s nothing like a fresh, crispy kugel.

    B”H You must know by now that I love your recipes. This is a bit different from my usual potato kugel but made it according to your recipe. Delicious! *I use schmaltz in mine too, it really makes all the difference)

  2. My mother always used to make her own schmaltz with the chicken skin and its fat etc. So I decided to do the same this year. Got a nice cupful and used it on my potato kugel. Soooo yummy! I should have added “crestor” (cholestrol medication) with every helping!!!

  3. would love to see your recipes
