Baked 'Kugelis' (potato pudding) is a Lithuanian national dish. If you want to try something delicious and surprise your family, you should give a try and cook Kugelis. What ingredients you need, how to cook it. All information you need is here.

Ingredients: what you will need

Cooking Kugelis:

Step 1. Strip the potatoes, grate, pour the boiling milk.

Step 2. Onion, chopped into small pieces and fry in a pan.

Step 3. Put everything into a bowl and mix well.

Step 4. Grease a roasting pan, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and pour the prepared mixture.

Step 5. Insert the tray into the middle oven rack and bake for about 1 hour. 180 C temperature.

Step 6. The final!

I would suggest

To make Kugelis not too dry, cook it in hot oven.

Cover Kugelis with foil, that it won't dry. And only uncover a barbecue at the end of the fry.

I have ALWAYS wanted to know how to make Kugelis, Lithuanian style, but this is the first recipe I've seen by a real person. Thank you

This looks good, and I would love to try the recipe if I can decipher the amounts into something I can recognize. I'm really unclear on this tip "And only uncover a barbecue at the end of the fry." This appears to be a baked potato dish, similar to an escalloped potato dish, but as it's baked and not barbecued or fried, I'm not sure what that means. Other than that, I found this lens delightful.
