Coney Knish

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"These are awesome! Straight out of Brooklyn is the Coney knish with a flaky crust and filled with potato, fried onion, and yes, hot dogs. These tasty treats are very popular in Brooklyn kosher deli and take out places. Sometimes I'll cut each one into 3 or 4 pieces before baking and serve them as a hot appetizer. Serve with a side of spicy brown mustard for dipping."

I made these with Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausages and the Knishes turned out amazing! Very Good! I had a hard time getting pictures as they disappeared in minutes.

I will make them again, but I will roll them differently. The dough came out a bit hard. I blame the altitude.

First, these were DELICIOUS. I will definitely be making them again. Second, there has to be errors in the quantities listed and the cooking time. 1) I used 2.5 medium onions, and 6 large potat...

Amazing!!!! Delicious!!!! I followed the recipe only changing using cocktail hotdogs and making themappetizer size. Honestly my hubby and I were worried that the potatoes would be dry no way ...

I made these with some left over mash potatoes and they were delicious.
