Shalom Bayit Kugel (Potato Kugel)
90 mins (prep 15, cooking 75)

This is called shalom bayit (peace in the home) kugel, because that is precisely the effect it has on mine when I make it on Friday afternoon. This is a recipe for either 2 large kugels (9"x13" and deep) or 4 small kugels (@8-9" square). It is best straight out of the oven, but can be saved for lunch the next day. To further its shalom bayit potential, I usually make it into four small kugels: one to feed my underfed, stressed out family on Friday afternoon (we always seem to forget real meals while we are preparing for Shabbat), another one for Friday night, another for Shabbat day, and, equally important, the fourth to give to some other family which is either running late, stressed out, just had a baby, or needs a pick-me-up. Never fails to work wonders. The key to this kugel is baking it first at a high temperature for a short time, and then at a lower temp. Wishing your family a peaceful day.
