True facts about potato kugel

  • No matter what anyone says, potato kugel tastes best when you grate the potatoes and onions by hand.
  • To make a full batch, the grating will take you about an hour. Set aside time so you don’t have to rush. Line up reinforcements because your arms will get tired.
  • You can’t escape scraping your knuckles on the grater. Keep bandaids handy.
  • When you scrape your knuckles on the grater, the onion juice will get in the cut and sting.
  • It will all be worth it.

      I think there is, but if your food processor can grate it VERY fine (almost pureed), then it might work!
