I used to make lots of knishes but usually a meat variety. I have 8 children and they made a great picnic lunch for us. Just needed some fruit and some carrots and celery on the side. Easy to eat and needed no plates or utinsels to serve or eat.

I know this thread is rather old, I found it while searching for a knish recipe. Our goal was to make Gabila's type knishes like the ones we ate as kids in NY. Here's what we came up with, it's pretty close:

Filling :

  • 2 ½ cups cubed potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1/3 cup instant potatoes
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Restaurant black pepper

Cook and mash potatoes, cook onions in just enough butter to moisten. Onions need to just start turning brown from slow cooking. Add onions, salt, pepper, and instant potatoes slowly while mashing potatoes. Adjust onions, salt, and pepper to taste.

We are using fresh garden grown potatoes, which are rather wet when mashed. The instant potatoes are to firm up the filling. Adjust to suit your needs.


  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup corn meal
  • 1 egg
  • 2.5 tbl. olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp. Baking powder
  • 2 tbl. water
  • ½ tsp. Baking soda
  • 1 tbl. Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. yeast
Mix dough let set two hours.

Roll out dough, and fill with potatoes. Deep fry a very short time, just enough to cook dough. 40 sec @ 320 degrees. Freeze for storage.

I was looking for another recipe and found this thread. I hope this is helpful, the recipe was given to my by a very nice lady from Winnipeg, about 35 years ago.
She wrote it for me with the condition that I always give her name and address.
So here it is the recipe:

Potato knishes - Recipe given by Mrs. B.Z. Waldman of Winnipeg, Man.
4 cups of flour---------1 tabsp cooking oil---------1 tbsp vinegar---------dash of salt--------
---1 beaten egg , and add lukewarm water to fill 8 oz. or 1 cupfull)---------
Knead well. Make sure dough is of soft texture. Place in bowl. Cover dough with oil and inverted plate. Keep in warm area for 1 hour at least.
5 lbs potatoes, boiled , soft mashed-------2 lbs Spanish onions sautéed or fried in oil to light brown--------
Mix cooked mashed potatoes and onion well. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
Cut dough into small sections. On well floured area, roll out each section until tissue paper thin.
Place a roll of potato-onion mixture at the edge of thin sheet of dough and roll as like a jelly roll.
Dent each roll with edge of hand and form into a ball –like shape.
Grease pan, place each knish.
Bake for 1 hour at 350ºF.

Note from Lucia: I use to have them with a little of sour cream.

I was glad to happen upon these 2 knish recipes; it is about time I took a crack at making them myself. I didn't want to use instant potatoes, though, inasmuch as I have some real ones growing in the back yard.
