Homemade Potato Kugel

Potato Ingredients:

  • 3-4 large russet potatoes (about 3 pounds) (peeled and grated)
  • 2 large white onions (sliced into wedges)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 6 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup Almond flour

Potato Preparation:

  1. Peel the potatoes and place them in a mixing bowl of water
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, combine and whisk the almond flour, half of the vegetable oil, eggs, salt, and pepper together
  3. Drain, and add the potatoes and onions to a food processor and grate them together (you can grate by hand if a food processor isn’t available to you)
  4. Add the egg mixture to the potatoes and onion and mix well
  5. Add the other half of the vegetable oil to an oven-safe baking dish and then pour the potato mixture on top
  6. If you hadn’t prepared this prior to cooking the meat, let the potato mixture cook alongside the prime rib roast after lowering the temperature from 450 F to 350 F for one and a half hours. 
  7. Let cook until the inside is creamy, and the top is golden brown and crunchy (can broil the top for 5-10 minutes if you want it crispier)
  8. Serve hot alongside the rested prime rib roast and enjoy!
