My husband was Lithuanian.
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

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. Now add the eggs, and mix well, add the evaporated milk, salt and pepper, 1/2 cup milk and the grated onions. Mix well. Pour into a greased flat pan with sides.
    The height of potatoes in the pan should not be over 1-1/2 inches high.
    Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Cut into squares to serve. Welike it with sour cream , and or applesauce.
    It can be cut and fried with ,eggs, and bsacon the next day!.
    This is a keeper.......... if you like potatoes!
