Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400°.

  • Brush an 8-inch square glass baking dish
    with 1 tsp of the canola oil. Wipe oil all
    over the bottom of dish and up the sides
    using a paper towel. Set aside.

  • Peel potatoes and rinse in cold water.
    Grate potatoes into a large bowl on
    smallest side of a box grater. Pour off all
    water. Add eggs, remaining 1 tbsp oil, the
    salt and pepper. Mix really well by hand,
    breaking up yolks, until everything is
    thoroughly combined and batter is
    smooth. Pour into prepared dish and bake
    at 400° until top is crispy and deep golden
    brown and a toothpick comes out clean,
    1 hour, 30 minutes to 1 hour, 40 minutes.

  • Check your kugel at the 45-minute,
    1-hour and 1-hour-and-15-minute marks. If
    your kugel has risen in the center, use a fork
    to poke holes in it, then use the back of the
    fork to pat down and flatten it. You want a
    perfectly flat top. If your kugel doesn't rise,
    don't worry; this is a good thing.

  • Remove kugel from oven. Using a knife,
    separate kugel from walls of baking dish,
    being careful not to break kugel and
    paying special attention to corners. Place
    a square serving platter over kugel and
    invert kugel onto platter. It's best to cut
    kugel into squares at the table, to order,
    so it does not dry out.
