Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown ground beef, and drain excess fat. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in onions, cabbage, parsley, garlic, red pepper, salt and black pepper. Cook until cabbage has wilted. Remove from heat, and stir in Cheddar cheese and ketchup.

  • Divide each loaf of thawed bread dough into four equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a 6 inch circle. Place about 1/2 cup of the beef mixture onto the center of each one. Carefully pinch together the edges to seal. Place buns seam side down on a lightly greased or nonstick cookie sheet. Whisk together egg and milk with a fork. Brush the tops of the buns with the egg mixture and sprinkle with coarse salt and cracked black pepper.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned. Serve hot with condiments of choice.

Note

These buns can be frozen. To reheat, wrap in aluminum foil and place on baking sheet. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), or until heated through.

Not terrible but just okay. Rather bland added some mustard and bbq to the stuffing to try to liven up the flavor. A very basic sloppy joe type sandwich... but in this house no one really cares for sloppy joes. Read More

I learned of this recipe from the newsletter on this site! Isn't it a great site? I love how it keeps all of us informed! Anyway this recipe is great Doreen!:0) I made it with the same bread machine dough that I use for my Kraut Bierrocks from this site. Its very similar just a difference in the condiments used. Thanks so much. Read More

I made this recipe with only two alterations. First I added along with recipes ingredients red bell peppers and some home-made Emeril's Essence. Second I used a cracked wheat bread recipe from King Arthur Flour made in the dough cyle of my bread machine. What resulted was a delicious comfort meal for a cold New England Winters' night! Served with a light fruit salad yum. Read More

We really enjoyed this sandwich. I had to use crescent roll dough because that is all I had. I added some roasted green chili peppers and used 1 cup of sharp cheddar with 1 cup of Monterey Jack. This sandwich is full of flavor and very filling. Thanks Doreen! Read More

Aweomse meal... reminds me of Shepherd pie so it goes well with lots of side vegetables. I just love meat mixtures like this. I added worcestershire sauce and instead of using frozen dough i just put the mixture on top of bread slices along with some tabasco sauce. Definitely making this one again. Read More

Good stuff. Husband likes to dip them in spicy mustard while I actually think they go well with a little horseradish sauce. They freeze well too. Thanks Doreen! Read More

This is a tough recipe to rate/review. My family did not care for them--their comment was not bad but not really good. The flavors were good together but we just didn't care for them. If you like Calzones you'd probably like these. This was just not a family favorite for us. Read More
