My kids love these beef rolls so much that I always make extra since they heat up so quickly. I give them their choice of dipping sauces—spaghetti sauce or ranch dressing are the top picks. —Kimberly Farmer, Wichita, Kansas

  3. Place meat pies in greased muffin cups, seam side down. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with spaghetti sauce.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled beef pies in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, reheat beef pies on greased baking sheets in a preheated 350° oven until heated through.

"Roll out dough as if for Bierocks smear a bit iof spaghetti sauce on dough before adding meat and bake on sheet pan. Freeze for quick snacks. I've even added to hamburger after frying."

"We did a taco version - cheese, taco seasoning, and salsa instead of the mushrooms, italian seasoning and spaghetti sauce. It was AMAZING! This recipe will definitely make the weekly rotation! Thank you!"

"These are great. I didn't have any frozen bread dough so I rolled out individual Grands biscuits and wrapped them around the filling. Yummy. I made mini bacon cheeseburger the second time. A big hit. Thanks."

"There are only 3 of us at home so cut the receipe in half. Very good. My husband said that they reminded him of a mini wrapped burger. I put the frozen bread dough in the fridge overnight and it was very easy to work with and there was no need to wait the 30 minutes as suggested. I will make this again."
