Cold Cuts Knishes

March 4, 2009

Before I present this idea, yes, I know, cold cuts and hot dogs are not terribly healthy. They are also high in salt, fat, and other such lovely things. However, for the few times of year I use these ideas, they do have their purpose…and besides, they are only the side dish, not the main meal. And it is Purim, after all, venahafochu…

Cut out a larger square of dough as instructed above. Squirt ketchup and mustard all over it. Line with two colors of your favorite deli cold cuts and roll up, jelly roll style. Freeze on a lined cookie tray until solid, then mark the foil’s outside as to what kind of knishe roll this is and wrap your roll well. Keep frozen until the morning of the seuda. Defrost directly into the lined pan it will be baked in for about 2 hours. Make slices onto the roll before sliding it into the oven. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour until it puffs up (remember, puff pastry it is!!) and is lightly browned on top. Remove from oven, slice along the indentations you made and serve.

I can almost guarantee that you won’t have any leftover of this one. It is so simple, but it tastes amazing and EVERYONE, young and old, male or female, drunk or sober is going to really enjoy them!
