A knish is a piece of 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.

Who wouldn't love loaded mashed potatoes inside a buttery crescent roll? Packed with cheese and bacon this knish recipe is easy to make. It's not a traditional knish filling but it's quite tasty. A great side dish or snack.

    Mash using butter, sour cream, and a dollop of milk. Mix bacon bits and onion into the mashed potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Roll out the dough so it lies flat. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 4 pieces cutting down the middle in each direction.

    Place a small amount of cheese in the center of the dough. Then a large spoon full of mashed potatoes on top.
  • Dough folded and sealed.
