Bake with Bizzy -- Knish in a Cup

My  apologies.  There were two more blogger's recipes to be featured and they seem to have disappeared. I will try to straighten it out.

There are a few staples of Passover and they are called potatoes, potatoes, and potatoes.  Then you look again and you see egg, eggs, eggs and onions.  Everything else, in my opinion, is secondary.  As a result, I have already made several potato recipes and I love them.  Yep, I am a potato fan.

This recipe probably is like a knish filling made in a muffin tin.  It makes nice individual size servings which would be loved by any child or adult.

Knish in a Cup


 1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cups mashed potatoes (4 large potatoes)
2 eggs
3/4 cup potato starch
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup onions, chopped
3/4 cup red pepper, chopped small
3/4 cup carrots, chopped small.


Preheat oven to375 degrees.

Mix mashed potatoes with eggs, potato starch, salt & pepper.
In a large skillet, , in olive oil, fry vegetables for about 5 minutes until softened. 
Add veggies to mashed potato mixture.   Mix thoroughly by hand.
Using 1/4 cup measure, scoop the mixture into a muffin tin.  Fill as many cupcake tins, as necessary.
Place in 375 degree oven and bake 20 - 25 minutes or until slightly browned.
