Potato babka is a savoury dish, popular especially in Poland, where it is known as babka ziemniaczana, and Belarus. It is made from grated potatoes, eggs, onions, and pieces of smoked, boiled or fried bacon and (especially in Poland) sausage. It is oven-baked in a crock, and often served with a sauce of sour cream and pork flitch. Depending on recipe and cooking method it may be either a flaky potato pie, or a heavy potato pudding.

The dish is similar to the Lithuanian kugelis and the Ashkenazi Jewish Kartoffelkugel.

The Belarusian potato babka is not to be confused with babka, a sweet yeast cake.
