3 ways to reheat potato kugel so no one knows you froze it.


Don’t want to be busy peeling, shredded, and baking on Friday morning? Here’s how you can prep your kugel in advance with no one the wiser.

Option 1: Remove from freezer the night before. The next morning, sprinkle kugel with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Cover and bake at 225ºF for a few hours, until thoroughly warm. You can leave it in the oven at this temperature all day until ready to serve.


Option 2: Remove from freezer the night before and cover very well. Place a pan of cold water into the oven. Place your covered kugel next to it. Bake at 225ºF overnight. The result will be overnight kugel!


Option 3: Remove kugel from freezer on erev Shabbos or erev Yom Tov. Pour ¼ cup boiling water over kugel. Cover with heavy duty aluminum foil or a double seal. Leave in oven at 200ºF until the next morning.

  1. Thanks for the great tips.
    I take my Potato Kugel from the freezer and put it straight into the microwave and it tastes perfect, with no freezer or thawed out taste

  2. I have been making frozen kugel for years, and this is how I do it:
    Pour the batter into pans, cover and freeze (unbaked).
    Friday morning preheat oven to 500. When the oven is hot, take out kugel from freezer, uncover and spray the top with oil before slipping it into the oven.
    After 45 minutes, lower the temperature to 375. Continue baking for about an hour (depending on how big your kugel is). This makes a fresh, yummy kugel.
    I find it works best with smaller pans rather than 9-13s.
