Potatonik may refer to two distinct potato-based dishes derived from Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine. One version is a hybrid between potato kugel and bread, containing shredded potatoes and onions as well as ample flour and leavened with yeast.[1] Another dish, apparently unrelated but called by the same name, is essentially a very large latke meant to be cut into wedges at the table.[2]
