Matzo Kugel, Mushroom (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Caroline Parry, Canadian Living
Serves: 8

2 cups matzo farfel/ferfel or coarsely crushed matzo
2 cups boiling water
3 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 tablespoons safflower oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery with leaves, chopped

In large bowl, combine farfel with water; let cool. Beat in egg yolks, salt, pepper and thyme.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms, onion and celery until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove 12 large mushroom slices for garnish. Stir remaining mushroom mixture into farfel mixture.

Beat egg whites until stiff glossy peaks form. Stir about one-quarter of the whites into farfel mixture; fold in remaining whites. Transfer to greased 8" (2L) square baking dish. Garnish with reserved mushrooms. Top with paprika.

Bake in 350°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
