Potato Kugelettes for Passover


Last year, I made this "muffin" and I found the recipe in an older post.  I am copying it upfront so you have a better chance of discovering it.  I am not sure, if I will have time to make this, or not, but it is in the overburdened plan.  Trust me, there is no way I could make everything on my list.  Right now, I am going to make coated (with nuts and a secret ingredient) chicken cutlets and blondies with chocolate chips.  My youngest came home, last night, to make them for us and then took half of them, this morning with her (She had my permission.)  I have eggs boiling for mock chopped liver.  Last minute, tomorrow, I make the items for the seder table and the simple vegetable dishes.  If hubby brings home cranberries, I will stuff acorn squash with a cranberry mixture. 

Potato Kugelettes


1 onion
2 potatoes
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons potato starch
1 tablespoon oil
spray cooking oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Grease 6 cups of muffin tin.
Chop onion fine.  You can use a food processor but I find they get mushy.
Shred potatoes and combine with onions. The potatoes, I do shred in food processor.
Add eggs and dry ingredients.
Mix well.
Fill muffin tins almost to top.
Top with paprika and spray with cooking oil.
Bake 400 degree for 20 minutes.


  1. Such a clever idea, Chaya! We're so used to seeing the latkes in pancake form. And the muffins look delicious. What's not to like? I'll definitely try these.
    Oops about your food processor!

    Second of all, these look delicious. i'm so enamored with them.

  8. Another wonderful recipe from my dear Chaya! Well done! Btw, I have an award for you dear. Please feel free to stop by to collect it. Thanks!

  9. These turned out good! I want one right now! YUM!

  10. indeed a great potato latka muffin... But what is potato starch? can i use corn starch?

  11. Very clever indeed. One of the annoying things about making potato pancakes is that you have to roll the grated potatoes in a towel to drain them well. I guess the excess potato liquid is perfect for the "muffins."

  12. Chaya,
    These little kugelettes would be so easy to pack for a take along Passover lunch. What a great idea! Happy Chag!
