Potato Knish Kugel

This is another recipe I found on a forum and adapted it to make it (in my opinion) easier to make.  It’s more steps than I usually like to make in my cooking expeditions, but I got 3 9″ round kugels out of it, which in my opinion makes it all worth it!  Oh yeah, and did I forget to mention that it freezes really well too?  (I’ll be adding this one into my repertoire for Kosher OAMC!)

Some of the changes I made were that I took out the margarine and increased the number of potatoes according to what I used.  I peel the potatoes before I cook them, although I’m wondering if that step is really necessary.

  1. Cook potatoes, mash and set aside
  2. Sauté onions in oil
  3. Mix eggs, flour, oil, salt, pepper, onions and add to potatoes
  4. Put mixture in pans (don't fill too high... I used 3 round 9" pans), brush with some egg and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Until next time,
