Savory Potato Kugel with Crispy Shallots


Adapted from Big Girls, Small Kitchen recipe for Potato Kugel with Sauteed Shallots

Prep: 30 minutes

Total: 90 minutes

Makes: 6 servings


  • 4 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 apples
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, roughly chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a small skillet, cook the shallots in 1 tablespoon of oil and a dash of salt over medium heat. Once the shallots are browned, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, grate the potatoes, onions and apples. Add the shallots, eggs, egg yolk, salt, 1½ tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and sage to the mix.
  4. Use the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil to grease a baking sheet (4 x 6-inch, 2-inch deep baking sheet should do the trick). Pour in the kugel batter and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and add the remaining honey to the top of the kugel for an extra glaze of sweetness!
  6. Remove the kugel from the oven and allow it to cool before serving.
