A kugel is a baked casserole or pudding and is often made with potato or egg noodles, but this version is made with leftover matzo. Sauteed onions give it a savory twist, making it the perfect addition to a post-Passover brunch.
- 4 Cups diced onions (3 large onions)
- 1/2 Cup canola oil
- 8 pieces matzo, broken
- 2 1/2 cups boiling water
- 8 large eggs
- 1/2 Cup parsley, chopped
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Fry 4 cups of diced onions in 1/2 cup canola oil until golden brown and caramelized. Drain the onions and reserve the fried-onion oil.
Step 2: Break 8 pieces of matzo into 2-inch pieces. Place in a bowl. Wet matzo with 2 1/2 cups boiling water. Make sure that all the water is absorbed into the matzo pieces.
Step 3: Add 8 large eggs, the fried onions, 1/4 cup of the fried onion oil, parsley, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper.
Step 4: Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of fried onion oil into a 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Pour the matzo mixture into the pan. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour or until set.
