Passover Mini Potato Knishes

Makes about 8 dozen mini knishes


  • 6 cups mashed potatoes (about 4-6 large potatoes)
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 2 tbs. margarine or oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup matzo meal
  • 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tbs. water

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Sauté diced onion until golden brown. In medium bowl, combine mashed potatoes, sautéed onion, eggs, margarine, salt, pepper, and matzo meal.

Form mixture into small balls about the size of a walnut. Place prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly with your thumb. Brush with diluted egg yolk and bake for 20 minutes or until well browned. Place for 5 minutes on the middle shelf if the knishes haven't browned while baking on the bottom shelf.
