These are popular..where I come from (Central Valley of California) living up in the U.P. no one has ever heard of them...but they seem to enjoy eating them LOL.

These are also known as Runzas, Cabbage Burgers or Kraut Burgers. I've made them often, as did my Mother. Those who say these need to be "kicked up" are not putting in enough black pepper. There should be enough that the mixture is actually a bit spicy HOT on your tongue, from black pepper alone. (I.e. a lot more than you imagine normally using in anything else.) You'll be surprised how delicious it is-- live dangerously and work that pepper grinder!
