Meat Knish

This was so good, I can’t wait to pull the leftovers from the freezer for a quick dinner and I will definitely be making this again.  It was a great Shabbat meal!

The recipe came from the Spice and Spirit cookbook, but here is the online link:

They forgot to put the oven temp.  I baked it at 350F for about 40 minutes.  I made it Thursday night and then sliced it (not the whole way down) and reheated it for Shabbat dinner. 

I doubled the meat and seasonings and used 2 TBSP tomato paste per recipe and doubled the dough.  I had leftover meat once I made two large rolls and a teeny roll.  I froze the meat and will toss it with pasta at some point for an easy dinner.

I used Smart Balance Light in place of the margarine and I used water in place of the non-dairy creamer.  You couldn’t tell the difference.  I love using healthier products so I can eat more ;)

I also used my stick blender on the veggies after I sautéed them, they were a big chunky for my taste.
