    Potato kugel question

    Why does the potato kugel some weeks get jelly-like in the middle?

    HI Simie, I LOVE the jelly like consistency, some people don't. It really depends on your oven and the quality of the potatoes you use. Potato kugel is so moody. I would say to add an egg so it's fluffier and maybe start on higher temp and lower towards the end to cook through. HOpe that helps.

    This happens to me as well. The center is often thick and congealed. Any suggestions?

    I would bake it at a lower temp and then raise to a higher one, but it might get grey that way. We bake it at 400 and lower to 350.
