Wikipedia: Kugel
Kugel (Yiddish: קוגל‎ kugl, pronounced [ˈkʊɡl̩]) is a baked pudding or casserole, most commonly made from egg noodles (לאָקשן קוגל lokshen kugel) or potato. It is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish, often served on Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
 
Wikipedia: Latke 
A latke (Yiddish: לאַטקע‎; sometimes romanized latka, lit. “pancake”) is a type of potato pancake or fritter in Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine that is traditionally prepared to celebrate Hanukkah.

@markknoller My kugel is more like a giant latke. The recipe’s a mashup of two others. Does that make it original?

Yes, potato kugel is a much worse thick latke. That and other questions like “is a hotdog a sandwich?” are discussed at length in the Talmud.
