Meat Knishes


I adapted this recipe from my BFF Menucha. I serve it as an appetizer with mushroom sauce on Yom Tov. When I make a log, I slice and serve it as an additional meat choice. It’s really good, and it freezes beautifully too.   Yields 36 knish squares or 2 knish logs (26 slices)


Prepare the Filling

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
2. Sauté onions in a small amount of oil for five to six minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic and sauté an additional three to four minutes.
3. Combine with the chopped turkey, meat, and remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.

Prepare the Glaze

1. Beat together egg and chili sauce in a cup for the glaze.

Assemble and Bake

1. If using puff pastry squares, fill each square with a heaping tablespoon of filling. Fold over to form a triangle, pulling the dough slightly. Pinch edges together well.
2. Brush with glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until done.
4. If using a puff pastry roll, cut in half. Roll dough out. Fill and roll up, or fold over edges to form a log. Spread with glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Bake for 28–30 minutes, or until done.
