  • Your favorite bread recipe try my whole wheat dough, or Rhodes frozen bread dough
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 1 large head of cabbage about 2 lbs, shredded or chopped fine
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper


  • Prepare bread dough according to your recipe or the package instructions. Set dough aside.
  • While dough is rising, prepare the filling. In a large skillet, brown beef. Add shredded cabbage, onions, salt, and pepper.
  • Simmer slowly until cabbage is soft. If mixture seems too dry, you can add water until moist.
  • Roll dough thin and cut into 5" squares (or, do as I do and just pinch off the amount you want!). Place one square of dough in open palm of left hand, stretching slightly as needed.
  • Place a large kitchen spoonful of meat and cabbage in center of dough.
  • Fold ends over or pinch edges together. Seal by pinching.
  • Place on lightly greased cookie sheet or shallow pan, folded sides down. I always let the rolls rise for about 20 minutes before baking, but it depends on the bread recipe you're using.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes or until brown. I like to brush the tops with melted butter.
  • They're so delicious straight out of the oven! I always make extras to freeze for later. They make a great quick dinner or easy snack.
