If the kitchen smells good like a holiday and your belly is full of food you don't normally get to enjoy, I declare it real!
I sort of read a few recipes for potato Kugel and combined them to fit my needs. Meaning, I did not want to use any starches or matzo or grains of any kind. I also don't do onions.
My Cuisinart made quick work of shredded these potatoes I tell ya what.
Real Holiday Kugel
3lbs Yukon gold potatoes (peeled and shred)
1/2 cup of Earth Balance stick margarine, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put 1/4 cup of margarine in a 13x9 Pyrex dish. Put Pyrex in the hot oven until you are ready to fill the dish with Kugel.
Melt the other half of the margarine and set aside.
Combine your peeled and shredded potatoes and eggs, salt and pepper, with your hands in a large bowl. Carefully add the mixture to the Pyrex from the oven with the melted margarine in it.
Spread evenly in the dish but leave some peak and mounds... they look pretty when browned. Pour the remaining melted margarine on the top.
Bake for 90 minutes or until brown and delicious. The kitchen smelled like donuts. I wanted to eat the entire thing myself. I made this the day before and the taste and look did not suffer at all by re-baking it. Crispy outside and custard-like inside.
