    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I make this using my own runza bread dough (to be posted soon on this site) but using frozen thawed bread dough makes it much quicker and easier, make certain to thaw the frozen dough according to the directions on the package --- the recipe amounts stated will make 18 buns as that is what I always make, you could reduce the recipe if so desired but I would suggest to make the full amout they will be devoured quickly! the ground beef/cabbage filling may be made a day in advance, my family likes spicy so I add in cayenne pepper or dried chili flakes to the ground beef mixture, also you could add in some crumbled bacon pieces too, cooking time is for the buns only ---

      Love these Runzas! My sister lives in Nebraska and I got addicted to them when I was there visiting. I made these using Kittencal's Pizza Dough recipe (119387). Everything turned out perfectly. Will definetly make again. Runzas are a great food if you are on the go.

      I am a farmer's daughter from Montana and each harvest season growing up my family would make these and freeze them. They were the best. When I came across this recipe today I made a batch. WOW the memories came back with each bite. My family loved them too! Thanks.
