I love ethnic foods and kugel is one of my favorites. It's a Jewish casserole dish. There's also a noodle kugel which is very good. There are so many variations to these dishes. Feel free to add veggies, if you like... carrots, zucchini, etc.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Kugel is commonly served on Jewish holidays and Shabbat. This potato kugel recipe is similar to a hash brown casserole but made with simpler ingredients. It's a delicious side to any meal with a soft potato center and a crunchy top.
