Potato Knishes

Potato Knishes IMG_2924

Leftover mashed potatoes are the best.

This entire recipe should take thirty minutes.

4 cups leftover mashed potatoes

One diced onion

One large clove diced garlic

One egg

4 tablespoons butter

One package of Pillsbury grande biscuits

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Saute the onion and garlic in the butter till soft

Season with salt and black pepper

Add the potatoes

Mix in the egg

Season the mixture again with salt and black pepper to taste

Lay the eight biscuits out on a work area

Flatten each circle to the size of a saucer

Place two to three heaping tablespoons of potato on each circle of dough

Start folding the dough around the potato, stretching the dough to seal the edges

Place on non stick foil

Leave about three  inches between each knishe because they grow as they bake

They usually take about 12 minutes but my last batch took longer

Bake until they are golden brown

Serve hot or room temperature
