Potato Kugel

Potato Kugel is one of those dishes that everyone loves.

What’s not to love about a shredded potato casserole that is baked until it’s crispy on the bottom and top.

My mom did a great potato latke. Kugel was something that she’d buy at the local deli for Pesach.

They’d be served in these small aluminum takeout dishes.

Making them at home is a fair amount of work.

Between the shredding and baking, it’s easily a couple of hours of work.

But it’s worth it.

Here’s Aaron’s Potato Kugel.
