Recipe

Mom’s Potato Kugel

This was in my mother's recipe box. I hadn't had potato kugel for a long time (I'm on a diet) but this has mushrooms in it, which I love. So I couldn't pass up trying this - my husband even liked it and he is not wild about mushrooms!

Times

  • Prep Time : 30 to 45 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 50 to 60 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 20 min

Servings

8

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large stalks celery
  • 2 large carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 pound white or crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • pinch pinch nutmeg
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups cooked mashed potatoes can leave skins on when cooking
  • 6 whole egg matzos, broken into crumbs
  • sprinkle paprika
  • sprinkle chopped parsley, for garnish
  • sprinkle chopped scallions

Directions

Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9×12-inch baking dish by spraying with nonstick pan spray or spreading with olive oil.  Add onion, garlic if used, celery, and carrots and sauté for 10 minutes over medium heat, stirring often. Add mushrooms, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, and continue to sauté for 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and let mixture cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, including liquids, with eggs, potatoes, and matzos. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired. Turn the mixture into the prepared pan. Lightly sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven, garnish with chopped parsley or scallions, slice, and serve.
