This is my standard basic potato kugel that I've perfected over the years. Now that I have it down pat, I don't plan on trying out any other versions, since everyone who eats it loves it. Its very important to use Yukon Gold potatoes. The texture and color of Yukon Gold potatoes is what makes this kugel so popular. I love Green Giant Yukon Potatoes. Some other companies I've tried weren't the same.
5 lb Yukon Gold potatoes
2 medium size yellow onions
7 extra large eggs
½ cup oil
1 Tbsp salt
1 pinch crushed black pepper
Peel potatoes and onion.
In a food processor (I use the Braun food processor with the kugel blade (CombiMax Grating Insert 7000-488), process the potatoes and onion on medium speed. (8 on the braun). (if the speed is too slow the kugel is too stringy and vice versa on the highest)
Place the potato mixture in a large bowl. Mix in the eggs and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Pour potato kugel mixture into pans. (I like to use loaf pans or 9x6 inch pans, so you get more end pieces.)
Bake at 350F for 1 1/2- 2 hours.
