I got a kick out of Jayne's posting about a Passover recipe site that had
some of my recipes on it. As I read her notation that I was a longtime
member of this list, I realized it's been 5 years since I first subscribed,
often just lurking, always enjoying. I had no inkling of the recipe site -
I always wonder where our recipes end up once we post them and often
stumble upon some of them myself. I see one of my favorite recipes was
also on this site, so I thought I'd post it again in case someone would
like to try it this year. The site Jayne referenced is
PASSOVER BROCCOLI KNISHES
(From the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle)
· 1 cup mashed potatoes
· 1/3 cup matzo meal
· 2 TB potato starch
· 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
· 2 egg whites *note
· 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1 cup steamed broccoli, finely chopped
*note - Or use 1/4 cup Passover egg substitute
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In bowl, combine all ingredients except broccoli. Stir well, then knead
until thoroughly combined and the texture of dough. Divide into 6 portions.
Flatten each portion into a 4" round, pressing down with waxed paper to
flatten. Put 1/6 of the broccoli mixture into each circle, fold over and
press edges to seal.
Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray or use a teflon sheet. Arrange
knishes on a single layer and place on bottom rack of oven. Bake 15 minutes
on each side. Serve hot.

(nf note: I bake the whole batch and freeze them, then reheat in the
toaster oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes - or 15 minutes if I
defrost them first.)
