This was nice and hearty comfort food on this cold evening. Rather than the hot roll mix, I used kittencal's recipe "throw away the bread machine instructions" and used the dough cycle of my bread maker. I did think the dish could have used a little more flavor, so next time I am going to try adding some kind of meat (bacon, ham, pepperoni?) to the filling. Thanks for the recipe!
