Love kugel; loved THIS recipe. It's recipes like this one that reaffirm for me just why I rarely bake. I just cannot help myself: recipes are always an invitation to play and with this one I probably did that a bit more than usual. For starters, I doubled the recipe (which has made about fifteen meals for two, for my parents: very satisfying). I've never bought or even seen canned onions so I used several 'real' onions, chopped, and I added 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped. Then once I'd started making this recipe I discovered I was out of basil - how can one be out of basil??? - so I improvised and used thyme, oregano and Greek seasoning. Because there were some fabulous Swiss brown mushrooms on special this morning, I just had to include mushrooms. I mixed everything together, including 8 eggs with a tub of sour cream and some parmesan. The kugel was in the oven for close to an hour, and in the final 10-15 minutes, I added some grated cheese. Thank you KITTENCAL for another fabulous recipe: for me an invitation to play, to do my own thing... The end result was sensational. Problem is when I play with recipes in this way, I know that they will never turn out quite the same a second time. But one major reason I'll be playing with this recipe again once the freezer stockpile is depleted is because I just love the inclusion of potatoes (the ones I buy are just SO delicious) rather than noodles.
