Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine potatoes with 1/2 cup olive oil, olives, scallions, and salt in large bowl.
  3. Place wrappers on a clean working surface so that it is a diamond-shape in front of you. Put 2 tbls of potato mix in center. Fold the top & bottom up to meet in middle. Squish lightly. Do the same with both sides. If needed, very, very lightly touch tip of one finger to water, rub together with thumb & squeeze all four corners.
  4. Gently pick knish up & hold in palms of your hand and squeeze lightly, shaping into a ball.
  5. Repeat with the remaining wrappers & potato mix.
  6. Place on UNoiled baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining 2 tbls of olive oil.
  7. Bake about 20 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Serve warm. Experiment with dipping sauces.
  9. Try making with different vegetables like carrots or parsnips. Use a lightly moist grain mixed in with the potatoes. Try chopped chicken or turkey mixed into the potatoes. Try these with sweet potatoes! Oh, yum!
