Does anybody know how they make yaptzik in certain monsey takeout places (not the kind where it’s a regular kugel with meat baked inside) rather it has no form. I not any of my friends can figure out how this is made, if anybody has a method or recipe this would be amazing!!! Thank you
If you bake it in the oven it will form. Make it in a pot on the stovetop. There are a lot of recipes online, my favorite is you heat oil, pour in half your kugel recipe, pour in meat, and pour in rest of kugel. Let it cook overnight. Good luck!
P.S. Some people like it just potatoes, without any eggs. I prefer the kugel recipe.
BTW, my father comes from Poland. Correct pronunciation is yaptzuk.
