inspiration for a potato kugel

  • d

A follow-up question to the below post on kugel:

I'm looking for some nontraditional additions/modificiations to the basic potato kugel. Putting aside whether my grandparents would approve (surely they wouldn't), has anyone ever tried adding one or more of:

* mashed roasted garlic
* carmelized (rather than raw) onions
* rosemary
* chopped oil-cured olives
* bits of salty meat (a bacon substitute, like bits of pastrami or something)
* artichoke

or other nontraditional additions? Thanks.

  1. I normally chop (not grate) a couple of onions and caramelize them in schmaltz or other fat, then add them to the other ingredients. I also regularly use grated carrots. The roast garlic sounds like a good addition.
