Delish Knish

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.

How to Make Delish Knish

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and cut potatoes. Cook in a pot of boiling water until soft enough to mash. Once cooked, drain water and return potatoes to the pot.
  2. Mash using butter, sour cream, and a dollop of milk. Mix bacon bits and onion into the mashed potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Roll out the dough so it lies flat. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 4 pieces cutting down the middle in each direction.
  4. Place a small amount of cheese in the center of the dough. Then a large spoon full of mashed potatoes on top.
  5. Fold dough over top pinching ends together. Place crease side down on greased cookie sheet.
  6. Brush with egg wash. Then sprinkle with pepper, garlic salt, parsley flakes, and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 min or until golden.
