Home made, (round, baked style) filled with with mashed potato, chicken fat and onions. Now, that's Jewish comfort food! As far as I know, Yonah Shimmel may be the last place on earth to get them.

A favorite of this Italian is the not-so-Italian Knish--that Jewish Potato delight...sold evrywhere, even at Yankee Stadium.
My question: On the roadways of America,how often do you come in cntact with this great treat? How many of you have NEVER had one. Just curious.


I read the whole thread, what is the difference btw this & a pierogie? I know Pierogi are either pan fried or boiled? And the dough, to me, is similar to ravioli dough?

Is a knish more like a calzone? Baked, not boiled?

I've never had one, as you can tell.

^^So kind of like a pasty? Pie crust with meat & potato & onion inside?

ETA ok the video made perfect sense, thank you for that. They look good, but I've never seen them around here.

Kinda like an, egg washed pastry pie crust with various fillings such as, potato with onions, kasha, (buckwheat groats) or, chopped liver. usually about the size of a "fist". Always, baked. Not fried.

Sorry, sizz. but, with all due respect, that (fast food) knish is a modern adaptation of the original style knish (from the old country) that I described above and were made by my late, Russian-Jewish born grandmother.
There is no comparison in taste and texture. But, your right about, potato. They were my favorite too!

Yes, in Russian, a "piroshki". In Jewish, a "knish".

We have a temple out here in Waukesha & the grocery store across the street from them used to have a little section of foods that were pareve, but they have since closed.

Maybe the northside? Mequon? Benji's doesn't have them?
