We recently spent Shabbos with my good friend Chaya. When we arrived she had this delicious kugel ready for us. We all loved it and requested the recipe. At my children’s request, I have been making it each week since then.
According to Chaya, this recipe has evolved, it is mostly based on her sister-in-law Beverly’s recipe, that she got from her mother, Mrs. Fruchter, with advice from Chaya’s Aunt Szuszi on how to keep it white (crack the eggs first!). This is a great tip.
4 large Idaho potatos
3 x-large eggs
1/4 cup oil
A little salt
A little pepper
I added 1 onion
Preheat oven to 350, heat the oil in the baking pan.
Open the eggs into your mixing bowl.
Grate the potatoes into the eggs, the quicker the better (by hand is best, but with a proper blade on a food processor, it is not bad)
Add the heated oil into the potatoes/egg mixture, stir quickly.
Add the salt and pepper.
Bake at 350 for 1hr. and 20 min.
