After kugel cools to room temperature, take a round (biscuit) cutter and form shapes from the kugel in the pan. Make sure you cut all the way through the kugel. Leave the shapes in the pan (together with the “leftovers” outside the shapes). When you’re ready to serve, heat the kugel, then gently remove the round shapes from the pan (see photo). Place them on a platter. (The leftover pieces are for noshing in the kitchen!) You can decorate the platter with purple onion rings for added color. Leaving the shapes in the pan with the rest of the kugel prevents them from getting dried out later, when heated.
