Individual Potato Kugels

Use your favorite potato kugel recipe (mine is below) but instead of making it in a large pan, pour into regular muffin cups. Bake until browned and remove from pans. Makes a very elegant presentation.
10 potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 eggs
¼ cup canola oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour oil into the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan (or well-greased muffin cups if doing the individual). Grate potatoes and onions and squeeze out liquid. Mix with eggs, salt and pepper. Stir in hot oil to make sure it all covered. Bake for about 1-1/2 hours until top is brown and crunchy (less for muffins).

  1. instructions are not so clear re: oil – are w supposed to use the 1/4 cup oil in the muffin cups or put additional oil at bottom of cups and mix the 1/4 cup oil into the potato mixture after heating up that 1/4 cup oil? thank you very much and kol tuv

  2. I am going to try something similar this year.

    I add chopped carrots, broccoli and cauliflower to my mixture. It’s a nice change.

    Hope they come out crispy. They would crisp up better in individual pyrex cups, but no one usually has enough of those to make this for a larger crowd.
