He loved my cooking! especially this dish.
This was his mothers Wisc. recipe, from the thirtys.
A restaurant in Chicago, that served this wonderful dish was Sharko"s, on W. 63 St.
Closed in the 90's.
But I think they had another one in Villa Park IL.???
I have many Polish and Lithuanian recipes, from his wondewrful family.
This is one of the best.

How to Make Lithuanian Kugelis a potato, bacon dish
- Cut bacon into small pieces and fry till almost crisp.
Grate potatoes into a bowl, drain off all the liquid into a small bowl.
NOW GRANDMAS TIP: Leave the above liquid to sit, then drain off just the clear liquid .Save the thick liquid at the bottom. Return this thick liquid to the bowl of grated potatoes.
