This satisfying dish is tastes like meat buns. Using biscuit mix is a speedy alternative to the original yeast dough, which requires kneading and rising. It also eliminates the need to shape and fill each bun.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

"I took one look at this recipe and thought, wow, there aren't ANY veggies in this. So, to ramify the situation, I made the following changes:- chunks of seasoned chicken instead of ground beef- increased the cabbage to 12 cups (would be pretty with a combination of red and green, but all I had was green)- increased the onion to 2 cups (could have used more)- increased the bake time to 25-35 minutes because the dish is now thickerThese changes made the dish serve 10, not 6.We liked it with the changes, but I don't think the original recipe is worth making again. BUT, it was a lot easier than making individual meat pies."
