It is a traditional Jewish food that comes from... ok really I have no idea BUT it is totally delicious.
It tastes similar to hash browns.
This dish is usually made in a square baking dish, but I have been loving individually portioned things these days (like these Skinny Strawberry Muffins that I still can't get enough of!).
They are kind of cute, don't you think?!
Anyway, Passover is right around the corner, so I decided to tap into my roots and make this yummy Jewish dish.
I put my own healthier spin on it by omitting the oil and reducing the fat/calorie content.
This recipe is a perfect side dish for breakfast or dinner.
I also like to snack on them! They are easy to whip up, and so savory and satisfying. Enjoy!
