This is a family favorite, we eat it almost every week, but it's especially good on Passover.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the potatoes and onion, either by hand or by food processor.
  2. (If grating by hand, pick out grated fingernails from potatoes;-).
  3. Add eggs and oil, mix well.
  4. Add paprika, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour into a well-greased Pyrex dish.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F and bake for 1 hour.

Made this for the first night of Passover for a HUGE group, naively hoping to have some left over for the coming week, it was simply devoured. It was extremely easy to make and delicious, I used white potatoes, well scrubbed, and grated them with the skins on as Mirj suggested. BIG HIT and definitely a keeper.

I can see why you would have this often! It is so simple to make and very tasty. I will certainly make this again and will try it with some cheddar on top too. I made it as a side dish for brunch. It disappeared in a hurry. Kugels are fairly new to me so I am happy I started out with the expert Thanks Mirjam
