    When in school we could get poroskies. They were biscuits or bread rolles filled with browned ground beef. We could then cut the top open and add other toppings. I've been looking for a recipe and haven't had any luck. The name may be wrong. Any help would be greatly appericated.

    There are several spelling variations.

    But aren't pirogi more like heavy ravioli rather than biscuits or bread as described?

    I think you mean piroshki.

    They are different from pirogi.

    You're right. I goofed.

    I'll stick with Mexican and Greek food.

    I think you mean Fleisch Perisky ( Meat Buns) recipe #79813 . I served them for Super Bowl and loved them.

    I had 1 years ago. I should say several in 1 sitting at a little cafe in san Francisco. They were fantastic. It was a baked bread dough with hamburger chopped hard boiled eggs with possibly chopped onions. Had a great flavor, but never found anyone else that made them. The closest thing to them are in Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco. They are called puffs. It's an open faced meat pastry I guess you call it. I would like to find out the origin of the porosky.

    Piroshki are Russian. What you described, with an open top, reminds of something Turkish, I think, but I cannot think of the name.

    My grandma, not Polish or Russian, but she used to make a yeast roll. Roll it out flat, then add a mix of onions, herbs and pork and veal. Rolled it up and baked them. She slit it open and she topped it with sour cream, cheese, and a warm vegetable tomato sauce she made, but it was more like a ragu.

    evelyn/athens's Note:
    "Make these for your next party as an appetizer. Piroshki are a very popular pastry here in Greece, probably brought over with the return of the Greeks from 'Pontos', now a part of Russia. Here, they are traditionally fried, but I find them much too rich (although very good) that way. This version is baked, and does not suffer any (just less calories) for it. I have given 3 different filling recipes. One for meat, one potato, and one mushroom. They are all great and each recipe will yield enough filling for 20-22 pastries. The prep time approximate - the pastry does need two hours to 'rest'."
