Default Sweet Potato Kugel

Hi there alaa: It's getting toward the "end" of my prepared foods for the holiday and found this recipe. Did you make it? Was it good? I'm wondering about it because it doens't have any eggs in it, and I've never seen a kugel recipe w/ no eggs. Please advise. Thanks.

Yes, I did. A serious winner. I can highly recommend it. I still have some leftovers and they are going quick. It doesn't seem to need any egg. Given that I went through 50+ eggs over the seders and leftovers, one dish without eggs was probably a Good Thing. I know I have low cholesterol, but I suspect I don't have that problem this week <smile>.

I'm planning to provide feedback on the various recipes and suggestions (see the food and points section for those) people. I'm hoping others do from their seders as well. I've been so busy this week I haven't had the time. The short form is everything was a keeper and it all worked great.

The Sweet Potato Kugel was one of my (and my guest's) favorites. I plan to make it again next year. The other good part is that it's easy to make. I peeled stuff while watching a videotape. 5 minutes beyond (with a little food processor help) everything was ready and in the oven. It's good to have some less fussy recipes when you are cooking for 19.

The only comment I'd make on the recipe is that I needed to cook it longer than the recipe said. I think this was because I increased the servings from the original recipe (which was 6 or 8, I think). I'm always conservative on the cooking time. It's easier to put stuff in longer than have it burnt. I think I cooked it 40+ minutes longer (I did the cook 15 minutes extra then check bit).

Let me know what you think.
