  • Stir onions, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper into mashed potatoes. Cool.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish.

  • Stir 4 eggs, matzo meal, and a pinch of salt into potato mixture. Spread potato mixture into prepared baking dish and brush top with beaten egg.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the kugel comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Very dry although I put in three times more fat than recipe called for. Very bland even with two tsp. of black pepper. This is the first time I have ever cooked ingredients before I baked the kugel. It is also the last time I will cook potatoes and onions before baking the dish. Read More
