Oh wow...it's been years since I had a knish (and I hadn't thought about them until I read your thread )

The only knish that I am familiar with is the regular variety. I don't know how familiar people might be with them...

Thank you for your response. I know we have a lot of transplants in Charlotte, as I am one of them. Was hoping for ideas to vary my recipe some. Thank you

I used to get those squarish ones which you could find everywhere in Brooklyn and Long Island. I haven't seen the same ones here (though I honestly haven't really searched...yet). I've seen round ones.
I have mine with salt and Mustard.
I've never tried making them since they seem like something that I "know" what the taste/texture is supposed to be and that I will not duplicate.

Haven't had on in a long time and I will be happy not having another one ever.





They generally fall in the category of absolutely tasteless foods.

NY Bagel off Gilead Rd in Huntersville has them, the square ones with the chewy outside and soft inside. They are exactly like the ones I had off street vendors in NY. I think they import them from up north. They are very good if a little pricey at $4 each.

Seems a little steep, but since it's not right around my corner I won't be buying them every other day. I might need to take a trip up there. Thanks
Now I just need to find some Kosciusko Mustard and I'll be all set!

BJ's in Pineville has Gabila's potato knishes which are exactly the same as the ones on the street in NY. They sell them in the case refrigerator where the cheeses & salami are, or maybe the case next to that. About $10 for 10. & they are big, so you could quarter them. As for serving I'd say just mustard & possibly sauerkraut on the side. So good. & I accidentally froze mine & they are fine. They've been carrying them for at least a year now.

I live near BJs. Now maybe I don't have to make them. They are a labor of love.
