This is the KosherEye family recipe for potato kugel. It is gluten-free, Passover friendly, a guest favorite and simply the most delicious kugel we have ever tasted. Best of all it, was perfected by our son the Rabbi and our granddaughter. It is a culinary family treasure.
We worked with our new Microplane Elite Box Grater to make this. We grated the potatoes and onions on the ultra-coarse side and the texture was perfect. Wish we could give you a taste!
5 lbs. potatoes, peeled
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 medium to large onion, peeled
3/4 c olive oil, divided into 2 portions
Preheat oven to 425
Grate potatoes and onion with grater blade of food processor or with a coarse grater. Put the gratings in a large bowl
In a small bowl, whisk eggs, salt and pepper
Put half of the olive oil in an oven-proof 9"x13" or 10" round baking dish and heat for about 1 minute or so (Careful not to burn oil!)
Heat remaining olive oil in the microwave or in a small pot
Pour egg mixture and heated oil into the bowl of potatoes; mix well with gloved hands or a fork
Pour potato mixture into the oiled, pre-heated baking dish
Bake in oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown on top
Serve immediately or reheat uncovered

For convenience, a disposable half size steam pan is fine to use with this recipe.
