    Anyone have a good recipe?


    I have to wait until my wife takes out her cookbooks.


    Cook the onions the same way as you’d always do,
    Instead of a normal dough, fry a flat scrambled Egg, not too thin, in the egg mix add quite a bit of Potato starch so it doesn’t tear when rolling,
    The only problem is that you won’t be able to do a nice Rebbish size kugl, I do smallish ones, then bake, same goes for Liver/potato Blintzes,
    This is the way I do it, I for years have struggled to come up with something better but not succeeded, LMK how you’re getting on,
    Hatzlacha & good Yomtov


    funnybone: i aologize. It was not an onion kugel recipe but a mushroom kugel recipe.


    Lower, can you post the onion mushroom recipe?


    from the cookbook : A Taste of Pesach V” page 24

    2 lbs mushrooms peeled and sliced
    2 large purple onions
    3 TBSP oil
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    2 Tbsp potato starch
    2 Tbsp onion soup mix
    garlic powder to taste, about 1/4 tbs
    pepper to taste

    preheat oven to 350 degrees
    heat oil in a skillet and saute onions till soft , about 8 minutes
    add mushrooms and sautee another 2 minutes
    in a large bowl combine musroom mixture with remaining ingredients and mix well
    pour into 9″ round pan. bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.


    Unless something’s changed in how they’re grown within the past few years, Rabbi Blumenkrantz and others say not to use mushrooms on Pesach.


    Not everyone is machmir. Thrre are others who nare not machmir.


    Clarification: Not everyone is machmir. I would like to know which Rabbi Blumenkrantz are you quoting?


    lower, you spelt THERE wrong.


    Iacisrmma: Rabbi Avraham Blumenkrantz zatz”l originally made me aware of this through his Pesach sefer many years ago. Similar information is in this year’s edition, continued by his family. I have the App, and it lists information from the Badatz from 2000 not to use mushrooms on Pesach, with information from mushroom producers that it’s “grown” from rye or other grains in the compost.

    This is why I prefaced my comment by unless something has changed, but in the absence of such data, I will continue not to use it. There may be heterim, but for me mushrooms are not a critical ingredient. As always, AYLOR, I just thought many might not even be aware this is an issue.


    I was told many years ago by a poseik in Lakewood who was in the kashrus industry that what Rabbi Blumenkrantz wrote was not an issue.


    At Kashrut.com there is an article discussing mushrooms wherein the pesach status is also discussed.


    Yes it is discussed with an important caveat ” Moist rye, one of the five major grains, would most certainly pose a concern of Chometz, and some have therefore cautioned against using such mushrooms on Pesach. On the other hand, most authorities do not consider this to be a problem.”
