Runza Casserole For Two

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"Tastes like the restaurant but way easier to make! Hamburger and cabbage casserole... and my 4 year old loved it! I've also made this with onion powder, when I forgot to buy an actual onion! Just add a bit to the raw hamburger and then some more when you add the other seasonings."

  1. Mix flour, butter, sugar, yeast, and salt together in a large bowl; pour in warm water. Stir mixture into a soft ball. Roll dough out on a floured surface; knead until dough is elastic, 3 to 4 minutes. Place dough in a bowl and cover with a towel; allow to rise in a warm and dry area, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onion in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add cabbage; cook until cabbage is steamed and wilted, about 10 minutes. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Split dough in half. Roll each piece to fit an 8x8-inch baking dish. Press one of the crusts into the bottom and up the sides of the baking dish. Spoon hamburger mixture into crust; cover with cheese slices. Cover cheese layer with second crust; pinch edges of both crust together to seal.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Cover casserole with aluminum foil and bake until filling is hot, about 10 minutes more. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes before cutting.

Everybody loved it!(Even my husband, who runs for the hills when I try something new!) First time for a dish like this- I used store bought pie crusts for ease, baking the bottom crust first. I ...

I made this several times. It serves at least four. It is a very good copy of Runza's taste. I also have made it using bagged coleslaw mix (pre-shredded cabbage) using one 14 oz bag per recip...

This was delicious! I added bell pepper to help bulk it up because I didn't have quite a full pound of hamburger. I also used a 9 inch pie plate instead of an 8x8 which worked really well. My hu...

The flavor was just not there for us. I don't know, maybe my taste buds were off that day. Also, it is way more than 2 servings. One pound of hamburger, a whole head of cabbage and other ingredi...

Very yummy - quick and easy to make! I will definitely be making this one again.

Love the recipe and ease to make. I just omit the cabbage. Plenty of onion, carrot shreds. Mine turn out similiar to sloppy joes but that's my preference. Some cheese and just a touch of BBQ sau...

I can't give a 5-star rating because I adapted the filling a little, but I must say that the dough is PERFECT!!! Even better than the crescent rolls that are usually part of this recipe!
