Sweet Potato Mushroom Kugel


Not your standard potato or vegetable kugel. Refreshingly different and full of flavor.


Prepare the Sweet Potato Mushroom Kugel

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together well. Pour into a small loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
3. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until brown and set.


Years ago, someone told me that the sign of a balabusta is someone who has hardboiled eggs, cooked potatoes, and fried onions in the fridge at all times. You can always whip up a meal quickly starting with one of these ingredients. I like to fry up lots of onions for a long time over low heat, and put them in cups in the freezer. This way, I’m always one step ahead.


I tried this with canned mushrooms as well, and surprisingly it was equally as good. Usually I’m a stickler for using fresh mushrooms, as canned mushrooms aren’t so palatable. But here there’s so much flavor from the other ingredients that it’s not as noticeable.
