What to do when you’ve got leftover latkes hanging out in the fridge from last night’s Chanukah party? Repurpose them into potato kugel! Just follow the directions below; it’s pretty simple. It’s not the exact same texture and flavor as if you were making it from scratch, but this neat hack tastes delicious and works very well.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a food processor fitted with the “S” blade, process the latkes for a few seconds until no large pieces remain.
Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in the remaining ingredients. I say season with salt and pepper to taste, because everyone’s latkes have a different amount of salt in them.
Pour the mixture into a nine- x 13-inch pan and bake for approximately an hour, until the top is deliciously golden brown. Slice and serve!
Only latkes prepared with parve or meat equipment can be repurposed for a meat meal.
