From the archives of “Hey, I wonder what would happen if we deep-fried this?” comes a recipe that was created when I thought exactly that. This is a great way to repurpose leftover potato kugel.

Prepare the Potato Kugel Bites
Serves 4–6, or 6–8 as an hors d’oeuvres
Cut potato kugel into one-inch (two centimeter) cubes.
Rub BBQ sauce into bread crumbs.
Dredge each cube in egg and then toss in bread crumbs. Set aside.
Fill a pot halfway with oil. Heat till it reaches 350–375 degrees Fahrenheit (180–190 degrees Celsius).
Working in batches, place breaded cubes in the hot oil and fry for half a minute on each side until browned.
Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate.
Serve with mustard or sriracha mayonnaise.
