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
This was so good .. I spent a lot of time grating by hand though ... I didnt add enough paprika and salt, but it was still good .. thanks :)
Great kugel. Moist and makes really good leftovers too. I used extra light olive oil, kosher salt (about 1 tsp) and cracked fresh pepper. Skipped the paprika. Made a double batch for Passover. A single batch made a very full 9x13 dish, easily serving 12-16 people a single serving. Also grated everything in the food processor, skins included. My only challenge is working fast enough to keep the potatoes from getting a grayish hue from the air before I got the eggs and oil mixed in.
Great kugel Mirj! It tasted like a giant latke (potato pancake for the unitiated). I intentionally oversalted the raw mixture which resulted in a perfect, flavourful kugel. I will make this again one day for my kugel loving brother. Thanks
We love this! I could eat it every day! Thanks for sharing! I lost my recipe and this is almost identical to it. Next time I will have to try it with skins on.
Absolutely delicious. Grated the potatoes and onion by hand which took some time but well worth it.
Maybe I did something wrong? After even 1 1/2 hours of cooking, mine was mushy. The color was this purple/grey- that the kids refused to even consider. My husband and I treated it liked mashed potatoes and put on butter and cheese. The taste was good, but the color and texture were a problem. I used skin on, red potatoes and baked uncovered.
First time kugel but will not be last. We found the amount of walnut oil to be a bit strong but I suspect that that is brand not recipe - next time will substitute some olive oil. Also will be trying another reviewer's idea of adding some garlic. Thanks Mirj
This was easy and really yummy! The only "bad" thing was that my first batch was eaten up so quickly I'm now on batch #2!
