  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (27 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 1 package (48 ounces) frozen bread dough dinner rolls, thawed

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add sauerkraut. Cool for 15 minutes.

  3. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter. Serve warm.
