Potato kugel

This delightful potato kugel is based on my pal Lauren’s recipe and she swears by using red-skin potatoes. The cup idea comes from my husband’s ideal friend Adam’s mom, Geanie (what a mouthful). Hubby remembers going to their house on Saturday nights and raiding the fridge for these cups. The very best part about them is that every piece is a crusty corner piece, so nobody has to battle in excess of that coveted crunch.

Make Ahead Tip: Although potato kugel will be at its ideal produced fresh (refrigeration or freezing will lead to it to lose some crunch), you can make it ahead and even freeze it with these instructions.

one. Slightly below bake, great fully , wrap tightly and freeze.

2. Thaw at room temperature, reheat, uncovered at 375°F for ten minutes.

To get the best results from this kugel, use a fantastic top quality extra virgin olive oil, we enjoy Colavita.
