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.
