Potato Kugel

It’s a big loaf of taters

This is really good as a side by itself or as the base for any number of meat or vegetable mixes. It also works well for breakfast as a substitute for hash browns or with fried eggs on top.

I used red potatoes but really almost any type will work. They can be peeled or left with the skin intact.

Potato Kugel

  • 4 lbs potatoes grated
  • 2 small onions grated
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp butter 1 tbsp olive oil

Mix everything together but the fat. Season with black pepper. In a 9″ cast iron skillet heat the butter and oil in an oven at 350 degrees for five minutes. Remove pan and pour fat over potato mixture making sure to coat the sides of the pan all the way around. Spoon mixture back into pan and smooth down the top. Bake for 1 hour or until set and brown on top.

    That sound scrumptious! Love this type of recipe…

    Hope you both had a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving!

  3. Delicious Rufus, but, forgive me, I am a little bit confused here. Title is ‘Potato Kugel’. Kugel (german) = Ball ( i.e. shaped like a Tennis-, Christmas- etc. ball). It does not really matter,or, the recipe looks easy, quick, delicious. Thanks and ciao, Carina

  4. Nice! I love potatoes any way they’re made.

  5. Forget this being a side, I will have it as a main thank you very much.

  10. Sounds like Rosti to me! Put some creamed turkey on top…Mmmmm

    The breakfast option sounds delightful!

    Plop a few eggs on top of that — I’m thinking some sunny sides — and that would be my heaven. Well, one version of it. Great stuff.

  13. Eva Taylor says:

    Very similar to the Swiss rostli potato I think, but it looks a lot more no fuss as it’s done in the oven. Love the sound of a poached egg on top!

  14. Rock Salt says:

  15. TasteFood says:
