Today my post is about Kugelis because...an author has to eat and this is a yummy treat. Probably everyone reading this post just said, "What the heck is Kugelis?" Kugelis is basically a potato cake (though savory, not sweet) that Lithuanians eat, especially at celebrations.
Making Kugelis is a bit labor intensive, which is probably why I only get to enjoy it when I head to Chicago for a holiday and visit with my Lithuanian relatives.
Simple machine...plug it in, plop the potato chunks in the top, flip the switch on, and push the potatoes down with the press (wooden stick part). To clean, open the latch on the clear window in front, remove parts and wash well, then spray with Pam to keep lubricated.
