    Having eaten many a Runza, my only comment would be, next time, chop finer, Ms. Cabbage Queen.
    Awaiting the outcome.

    I like it chunky...
    When you see these photo's, all I can say is that my motto is,
    WHY BE NORMAL?
    .................
    Yeah.. they ain't beauties, but taste sooooooooooo good.
    (I sampled after I shot the pix)
    I especially like the pizza shaped one.
    And the extra dough made for a mini roll.....
    The dough looks funny, as it was in my freezer for quite sometime, and I guess it is freezer burn...
    Waste not, want not!
    Now....... on with the show!

    Yes, you can laugh, as I am still doing.
    Actually, they are a bit embarassing looking...

    I can see why you're embarrassed. Interesting shapes. But at least none has a piercing for a stud.

    I'd still take yours over what Runza puts out these days.
    But they are half a mile from my house and you are half way across the country.

    Is this an acceptable recipe? Man, I lived in Germany for 10 years but don't remember eating these....I was in Bavaria, would this be a northern german specialty?

    RUNZA'S (GERMAN)

    1 pkg. Pillsbury hot roll mix
    1 lb. hamburger
    1 med. onion, chopped
    1/2 head grated cabbage
    1/2 can cheddar cheese soup
    1/2 can cream of mushroom soup
    Pepper to taste

    Make roll mix according to directions. After rising the first time, roll out on floured board to 1/4" thickness. Cut into 6" squares. While dough is rising, brown hamburger with onion. Drain fat. Add cabbage to cook over low-medium heat until tender. Add soups and pepper. Place 1/2 to 3/4 cup mixture on each square of dough. Bring up corners and seal edges to make a pocket. Place folded side down on a cookie sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes in 425 degree oven. Makes 6 to 8 runzas.

    Here's a good start, desertdog. It's from http://www.Plainsfolk.com
    a nifty website about the plains.
    http://www.plainsfolk.com/recipe/bierock.htm

    Ingredients

    * 2 packs yeast
    * 1 tablespoon + 3/4 cup sugar
    * 1 cup water
    * 1 tablespoon salt
    * 2 cups warm milk
    * 4 cups + 4 cups flour
    * 2/3 cup lard
    * 2 eggs
    * 1 pound ground beef or pork
    * 2 onions (chopped)
    * 1 head of cabbage (shredded)
    * Seasonings to taste (salt & pepper, soy sauce, herbs of choice)

    A characteristic and portable food of the Volga Germans on the American plains is the Bierock (and if you don't like my spelling, make up your own). The Bierock is a baked bun stuffed with cabbage, onions, and meat. I learned how to make these from my mother and the other women of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League, St. John's Lutheran Church, Ellinwood, Kansas, who make up thousands of them for the annual Fest im Park. St. John's is a predominently Hanoverian German congregation with a few Volga Germans mixed in as the leaven in the meal. What I do different from the St. John's women is that I put the dough through its first rise in a Vorteig, or batter, stage. Eat these with a cucumber salad in summer, or with some pickled stuff in winter.

    A word about the filling. Most Bierock fillings are terribly bland. It's a matter of taste, but I season pretty heavily with garlic salt, pepper, caraway, a Bavarian herb mix, and soy. Because the mix is wrapped in dough, it can stand plenty of seasoning. The dough in this recipe is slightly sweet, which may affect your choice of seasonings.

    1. Start out with three mixing bowls. In the smallest, proof your yeast mixture: yeast, tablespoon sugar, and water.

    2. In the middle bowl, mix the milk, salt, and 3/4 cup sugar.

    3. In the large bowl, mix the 4 cups flour and the lard, then the eggs.

    4. Put all this stuff together into the big bowl and mix. This is the Vorteig, or batter. Let it rise.

    5. After the Vorteig has risen, mix in the other 4 cups of flour, knead, and let the dough rise again.

    6. While it rises, start the filling in a pot on the stove: brown the ground beef, add and cook the onions (chopped) and the cabbage (shredded).

    7. Pre-heat oven to 350o.

    8. Roll out pieces of dough, spoon filling on, and wrap them up.

    9. Bake about 15 minutes on greased sheets.

    I buy the frozen dough loaves..
    I noticed some recipes call for cheese.
    I dont care for cheese in it.
    And that is the first I have seen for the soup.
    But I have seen lots of recipes for small square's like yours calls out for.
    I just looked at the photo on the Runza website, and then found a recipe I like.
    I use lots of pepper, salt, garlic salt and some cinammon sugar in mine. I acutally use the McCormick Hot Shot pepper blend.
    (The loaves I used were in my freezer for about 6 months, and I had lots of ice crystals in the bag. I think that is why I had trouble rolling out the dough,and the discoloring on them.)
    BTW... they taste fantastic anyway.

    Thanks LegalLady.....
    (I have plenty leftover)
    Yes, Cajunking.. That is a bobitt..." />
    (no filling in that one)

    My earlier ones looked a lot better than this batch.

    Legal Lady,
    You be careful about going out in that Blizzard. The news film looks terrible. We are thinking out you in our 60 degree rainy weather here in Louisville.

    Roossy,
    I like the Blueberry version best of all! I think you ought to offer them to the RUNZA Stand folks as a dessert treat...kind of like a 'Fried Cabbage and Blueberry Pie' !! All kidding aside either your photo skills or your recipes are improving!

    roossy90:

    I was looking for cooked cabbage recipes in old threads, and I found by chance in this thread from December 6, 2005 ( http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10653 ) a posting by rjb answering a question by Sundancer7 about cooking cabbage which I think will solve forever your problem withblue runzas!

    In there rjb said, "I assume this is white cabbage. If its red, you need to have a dash of acid (red wine or vinegar) or it turns bluish."
