How to Make Passover Onion Kugel


  1. Prepare the onions: after the onions have turned golden, add the celery and saute until the celery wilts, but is still a little crunchy.
  2. To prepare the batter: place the matzo farfel in a colander set in your sink. Very slowly, in a thin stream, stopping every few seconds, pour the boiling water over the farfel. The farfel should become limp, not sodden.
  3. In a very large bowl, beat the eggs with the salt, pepper, and the chicken soup.
    Stir in the onion mixture, then the moistened farfel.
  4. Place 3 tbsp. chicken fat in an 8 inch square glass baking pan. Place in oven for 5 minutes.
    Remove from oven and pour in the farfel mixture.
    Drizzle the remaining 1 tbsp. chicken fat over the top.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour, until well browned
    Let cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
    Reheats beautifully in a 350 degree oven.
