In most traditional versions, the filling is made entirely of mashed potato, kasha (buckwheat groats), or cheese. Other varieties of fillings include sweet potatoes, black beans, or spinach.

Knishes are Jewish Hot Pockets. Their appeal is convenience, portability, and reheatability while being tasty enough (very tasty if the meat knish is made well).
