This is the Kugel that was created by Sue Fischer for the White House Passover seder for the Clintons.
4 large eggs
6 cups farfel or crushed matzah
4 tablespoons margarine
2 small onions, diced (about 1 cup)
14 medium mushrooms, sliced (about 1¹/3 cups)
4 cups chicken broth
Pinch of marjoram
Black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the eggs and the crushed matzah in a bowl. Spread a the matzo mixture in a thin layer on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place in oven for about 15 minutes or until the farfel is dry and toasted.
In the meantime, heat the margarine in a small sauté pan. Add the onions and sauté until limp. Then add the mushrooms and continue cooking until soft.
Add the toasted matzah, 1 cup of the chicken broth, a pinch or marjoram, and black pepper to taste. Stirring constantly, continue to add the broth until most of the liquid is absorbed into the matzah. Reduce the heat to low, letting it sit until all the liquid is absorbed. Place in a oven proof dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with the chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and shiitake mushrooms.
