Recipe by BOBCHASE
"This is a Lithuanian Ethnic dish. The main ingredient is potatoes. The recipe comes from my fathers grandmother and has been a family favorite for more than 75 years. Serve hot as a main dish with either sour cream or applesauce."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is a family tradition (yes, Lithuanian!) However we use chopped bacon, diced ham and add evaporated milk also. We don't use the flour. We just chop everything up in the food processor, transfer to a bowl, add eggs & evaporated milk, transfer to a baking dish (coated with Pam for easy clean-up!) and bake at 350 for about an hour. The flavor is AMAZING!!! We also serve with a dollop of sour cream. (Just as a note - you can freeze leftover ham (from holidays) and leftover bacon and thaw them out when you're ready to make the Kugeli! :)
This is an excellent recipe. Okay I am Lithuanian but still....it's the best. I lost my own family recipe so thank goodness I found this one. In my family we call it, Kugelis. My children love when I make this, I serve it with sour cream.
Yummy! Tastes like spruced-up hash browns.
great recipe...works well with bacon and a splash of evaporated milk.
Thanks BOBCHASE! Just like Mom and I ued to make, only in the old days we didn't have food processors, everything was hand grated. Your recipe is exactly like mine.
Thank you so much. When my grandmother passed, we lost her recipe. I'll never loss your this one.
I used bacon in this and cut the recipe back to fit in a 9x13 pan. We felt it needed a little salt, but this was really good. Comfort food like a cross between mashed potato and a hash brown casserole. I'm going to try crying the slices with breakfast tomorrow as per the suggestion.
