Potato Kale and Feta Mini-Knishes

I failed to get a shot of these, but they were delicious. The filling can be made for a side dish, as well. As a matter of fact, I might not go through the trouble of making these again unless I have guests. They were perfect for my theme of no utensils, only napkins.
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Water
To make dough combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Make well and add 1 Tbsp of oil, eggs and 2 Tablespoons water. Gradually mix wet ingredients to flour. Knead dough until ball is formed. Knead dough, place in oiled bowl. Let stand covered for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups plain mashed potatoes with skin on
  • 2 cups finely chopped onions
  • Chopped kale
  • 8 oz of feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Put oil in skillet and cook onions until tender, add kale, salt and pepper, and cook down for about fifteen minutes. Add potatoes and feta and mix well. Divide dough into thirds on a floured surface. Roll dough out in a rectangle and fill with mixture. Seal seams with a pinch of water. Slice to form wheels and try to gather the dough around the bottom, place on baking tray. They will look like little cups. Mix up an egg yolk with a little water and rub the dough sides with the egg wash. Bake for 40 minutes, until golden brown. Of course, you can make any shapes you want, and really, any filling, too!
