Looking through my recipe books, I came across this long forgotten recipe for a vegetarian potato kugel. It makes a delicious casserole and will probably become a family favourite. Served with green vegetables or a salad, it makes a hearty vegetarian meal.
Kugel is a baked pudding or casserole, most commonly made from egg noodles or potato. It can become a sweet dessert by omitting the onion and garlic, and adding grated apple, chopped walnuts and raisins.
