Sarge's Deli Recipes: Potato Kugel

April 18, 2019

There's nothing quite like a steaming hot piece of potato kugel. Pronounced "koo-gul" (or "kee-gul" depending on where you’re from), Potato kugel is one of the few dishes that is appropriate for most Jewish holidays (including Pesach), and can be served as an entree, side dish, or dessert, hot or cold, day or night.

The word “kugel” is German for “ball” (or cannonball), likely referring to the round and puffed up shape of the original kugel which today has evolved into a square shape. It comes in a few varieties, but is typically a baked sweet or savory pudding or casserole made from noodles or potatoes.

Sarge's famous Noodle Kugel and Potato Kugel sell year round, however our Potato Kugel can be found on almost every Passover Table. If you want to make our Potato Kugel at home this year, here is the recipe!

Sarge's Potato Kugel


- 8-10 Idaho or Chef Potatoes (Depending on size), peeled and grated
- 5 Eggs
- ½ Teaspoons Salt
- 1 Teaspoon White Pepper
- 4 Tablespoons Soy Oil


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Combine the shredded potatoes and shredded onions in a Food Processor. Mix in the eggs, soy oil, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown and crisp, 1 to 1 ½ hours (Depending on Oven).
