Babka (Potato Casserole) Lithuanian Recipe

Babka (Potato Casserole) Lithuanian Recipe

This Babka recipe was given to me by extended family.  When I searched for more information I discovered babka to be more of a bread. This recipe is either Polish or Lithuanian. Prepared with grated potatoes, onions and eggs, it resembles a type of potato casserole. While looking for information, I came across recipes for Lithuanian kugelis. My recipe closely resembles kugelis.

Babka is a European style potato dish that makes a great side dish or main entrée. It is well-formed and can be cut into serving squares. Add this dish to your recipe collection!
