Send your personal Hanukkah greetings with a delicious potato kugel.  Although potato latkes (pancakes) are traditional of Hanukkah, a potato kugel is easier to make and healthier.  It is also a favorite of ours on Passover. Here’s an easy recipe that I have used for years, and it’s always yummy.


5 large potatoes, peeled and grated
1 ½ large sweet onion, peeled and grated
2 large eggs and 2 egg whites
1/3 cup matzah meal or breadcrumbs
2  tablespoons canola oil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 X 13 inch pan with 1 tablespoon oil.
  2. Grate potatoes and onions together alternating each.
  3. Pour potato and onion mixture into a fine strainer and squeeze out the liquid.
  4. Place mixture into a large bowl and cover.
  5. Beat eggs and egg whites with salt and pepper.
  6. Add egg mixture to potatoes and onions. Mix in 1 tablespoon of oil and matzah meal.
  7. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and smooth out the top.
  8. Bake in oven for about 1 ¼ hours until top is golden brown.
  9. Let rest 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
  10. Potato kugel can be prepared in advanced and heated up in a 300-degree oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Happy Chanukah Greeting Stones

Happy Hanukkah Engraved Rocks

Send your Passover or Hanukkah greetings with a delicious, light and fluffy potato kugel.


3 lbs. baking potatoes
5 large eggs
2 medium onions
1/2 cup matzoh meal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 tablespoons canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel the onions and cut so they will fit into the food processor.
  3. Peel the potatoes and cut them so they fit through the food processor. Place the potatoes in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes until you’re ready for them.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until well mixed.
  5. Finely grate the onions, and add them to the eggs.
  6. Drain the potatoes, and finely grate. When the food processor bowl is full, transfer the potatoes into a strainer over a bowl. With the back of a spoon, press out the water.
  7. Grate the remaining potatoes and strain. Throw out all the liquid that settles in the bottom of the bowl.
  8. Stir the potatoes into the onion and eggs. Add matzoh meal, baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  9. With 2 tablespoons of oil, grease the bottom and sides on a 13 X 9 glass baking pan. Place the pan in the oven for 5 minutes.
  10. Remove the pan from the oven. Pour the potato mixture into the pan. Drizzle the remaining oil on top.
  11. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes until lightly brown.
