Miniature Potato Knishes

  • 3 cups mashed potatoes (approx. 2 large russet potatoes)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1 tsp. salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 3/8 cup matzah meal
  • 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 Tbsp. water
  • oil for baking sheet
In medium sized bowl, combine mashed potatoes with eggs, margarine, salt, pepper, and matzah meal. I sautee a diced whole onion until nice and brown and add to mixture as well (this really adds to the flavor). Form into walnut sized balls. Brush with diluted egg yolk. Place on a well-greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 400 oven for 20 minutes or until well browned.

Makes approximately 42 miniature knishes. Easily doubled. Can also substitute 1 sweet potato when doubling (1 sweet, 3 russet).
