Potato Kugel - My Way

Cassie *


My family loves when I make these Jewish potatoes...the seltzer makes the potatoes fluffier than without using...I always add it...love the creamy onion flavor...you can use whatever potato you wish...I usually always use Yukon Golds...Your house will smell amazing as this bakes...

How to Make Potato Kugel - My Way


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

    Pour oil in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Place in oven for 10 minutes while mixing other ingredients to pre heat.

    Grate potatoes and place in cold water, while grating onions.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs...add all remaining ingredients. Stir to well combine...I use my hands.
  3. Pour into heated oil. Spread evenly. I sprinkle with some dried parsley, just for some color.
  4. Bake for 1 hour & 30 to 45 minutes, until the top is brown and crispy.
