Since we eat this practically every week, and it is my recipe, I just have to give it 5 stars. I have to make 2-one for the kids to eat now and one to eat with the meal. Chava

This was delicious! This was my first attempt at making a savory kugel. This tastes like potato pancakes baked in a casserole. I was unable to get matzo meal, so I used cracker crumbs instead, and this worked out fine. It was so good that we all had second helpings. NOTE: My potatoes were particularly watery after grating in the food processor, so I drained them well in a mesh strainer, using my hands to squeeze out as much liquid as possible, before mixing them with the rest of the ingredients.

This is a good kugel, and if you like crust, this is the kugel for you! Instead of salt and pepper I used onion soup mix, and it gave a great flavor to the potatoes.
