I checked my Spice and Spirit cookbook and although they didn't list exactly this recipe, they have a similar one page 304 in 2008 edition Reply

an answer to one comment an answer to Ellen, when you add matzo meal to a kugel that is another recipe, it is not the same flavors and textures, it should not have meat bones, it is just a real potato kugel, and the one I send, it is called a reijbah is it the way we call it here in Mexico it should be very sticky. loose and very juicy, if you add matze meal it will get dry like a cake.

Thank you for your comment. Reply

Addition to Kugel I add matzo meal to this same dish. I can't tell you exactly how much because my Grandmother taught me how to measure with my hand, I guess it would be 2 or 3 handfuls depending on how many potatoes you are using. Reply
