Kugels - a kind of Jewish baked pudding or casserole. There are many differnt kinds - sweet or savory, vegetables, fruit, with noodles or not. The more modern ones have all kinds of vegetables, usually mixed with eggs and some kind of binder and baked - in kosher homes they are served as a side dish in a meat meal (meal where only meat/chicken or neutral foods are eaten, no dairy).
(Amounts are approximate)
6 medium potatoes, peeled, grated, and slightly strained.
1 medium onion, peeled and grated
about 1/3 cup of matza meal, or flour. i usually add a pinch of baking powder too.
salt, black pepper
about 1/2 cup of veg oil (I usually use less but more is better!)
grate the vegetables. beat the eggs and add along with the other ingredients.
pour into a greased or lined pan (square pan, or loaf pan or pour into muffin tins)
Now to bake - either bake in a hot oven for about 40 minutes or until it turns a beautiful golden brown and the outside is crispy. OR bake for about 2.5 hours in a medium- low oven.
