Meat Buns Recipe

Everyone loves the golden, tender crust that surrounds the hearty filling... but making the dough from scratch can be time-consuming. I would serve these more often if they were quicker to make.—Sharon Leno, Keansburg, New Jersey

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar, egg, salt and 1 cup flour; beat on low for 3 minutes. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add cabbage, onion, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in cheese. Remove from the heat; set aside to cool.
  • 4. Punch dough down and divide into 12 pieces. Gently roll out each piece into a 5-in. circle. Top each with about 1/4 cup filling. Fold dough over filling to meet in the center; pinch edges to seal.
  • 5. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with butter. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
