peeled and shredded potatoes

2 1/2 cups

My 13 month old daughter and I really enjoyed this recipe. My husband did not like it stating it tasted too much like onions (he hates onions). I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for three. Also a food processor is a must. It only took me 10 minutes to prepare this. I did everything in the processor, shredding cheese and potatoes and chopping the onion. Also I only cooked for 60 minutes and the casserole was crisp and done. I had to cover with foil the last 15 minutes and it still burned a little on the sides. I will start with the foil if I make it again. This may be due to the larger pan I used (9x11.5).
If you add more cheese I think these would taste just like the potatoes at Cracker Barrel. I also added about a teaspoon of dried mustard for extra flavor.
I probably won't make again for home, but may take to a pot luck as I really liked them.
this recipe was awful, i think that the potatoes should have been cooked, cooled and then shredded. my potatoes were still hard. I also think there were too many eggs!
Very good! I used two large pans and baked them at 350 for an hour then 400 degrees for 10 min. Great taste, will make it again for sure.
This potato loaf is wonderful for breakfast. Just slice off the number of pieces you need and fry or broil. YUM! I did cut the olive oil in half because it seemed a little greasy the first time I made this. Also, for more flavor I added garlic powder and a touch more salt. Thanks Mindy.
FYI: For those of you concerned with the potatoes turning brown, add water to the bowl of your food processor before grating. Just grate directly into the water.
This is awesome! My boyfriend is Jewish and I make this when he's homesick for traditional food. Even the first time I made it, he said it's as good as any kugel he's ever had, and asks me to make it all the time! I made it for Easter dinner and my Mom and brother loved it too, it was gone right away and now she wants to make it.
My only complaint is how long it takes to make- shredding 3 lbs of potatoes is hard work! I wonder if frozen hash browns would be okay in it?
This was really good, nice and oniony. Also really easy to make since I used the bags of already grated potatos you can find in the meat section of the grocery store.
My family and guests thought this recipe was delicious. Many comments about how good it was, including a good review from my picky son-in-law.
I grated the potatoes and cheese in my food processor, which saved some time, although certainly handgrating would not be a problem. Instead of cooking in a loaf pan, I did as others suggested and used a 9 x 13 inch pan. I found they browned just fine without having to raise the temperature to do so. I also found they were done in about 45 minutes instead of 1 hour. I forgot to squeeze the water out of the potatoes, but found that was not a problem. The potatoes were perfect. I think next time, I might try making them with a bit of a kick by adding some hot sauce, jalapeno peppers, or chili powder.
This was an easy recipe to make, and except for cooking time it didn't take that long to fix.
