8 potatoes, peeled
1 large onion, peeled and quartered
2-3 Tablespoons oil
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
13”x9”x2” baking pan
Food processor with a small hole grating disc
Large mixing bowl
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line the baking pan with parchment paper making sure the paper comes up the sides.
Put the oil in the parchment lined pan and place in the oven (so the oil heats).
Grate the potatoes and place them in the bowl. Add water and wash the potato shreds between your hands. Drain in the colander. Rinse the potatoes a 2nd and even 3rd time until the water is clear. Drain in the colander and squeeze out any extra moisture.
Process the onion with the chopping blade until it is almost pureed.
Mix the onions, eggs, flour, salt and pepper in the bowl. Add the grated potatoes and mix thoroughly. (I use my hands.)
Carefully remove the pan with oil from the oven. Pour the kugel mixture in it, spreading throughout with caution. (Watch out for the hot oil.)
Bake in the oven anywhere from 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours depending on how crispy you like your kugel.
