A knish is a piece fo dough stuffed with potato, meat or cheese, then baked or fried. The word from Yiddish and many times from the Jewish faith. I know mine is my own creation and wouldn't fit because of the bacon. You can stuff the dough with almost anything you like, from veggies, to meat, to cheese to even dessert types. I hope you like my version of this delicious side dish. I looked at many recipes and developed this one of my own.
