Fry and crumble about 5 slices of bacon. Set aside. Pare 5 lbs of potatoes and chunk them into about 1' pieces to accommodate a blender or food processor. Grate in blender with sliced onions and 1 egg.

Mix in a large bowl with about 3 cups of flour, the grated potato mixture and crumbled bacon. pour into 9x13 pan that has been greased. Make sure the pan is deep enough to allow rising. pour 1/2 cup of vegetable oil on top/or bacon grease. Bake at 300 degrees for about 4 hours or until crusty or brown, remove the crust and eat it warm. cool the rest and slice and fry until nicely brown when you would want to serve again.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was my grandpa's signature dish( Your Great Grand-father.) We didn't nor did he have a processor to grate the potatoes so they would have to be grated by hand and it took a really long time. Back when he was a boy they didn't have a lot of money so potatoes were cheap. A lot of German's used potatoes to eat because they were so cheap. When I was a little around Christmas time he would make several pans of Kugel and we would eat it every morning. It is traditionally a Jewish dish, with Germany primary Jewish origin, a lot of the food was of Jewish decent.
