Recipe by hrlyhny

I was born and raised in NE. All the Runzas I have ever tasted use sauerkraut. So here it is my NE Runza recipe.

Top Review by Catherine Robson

I have never heard of a Runza before as I am sure we don't have them here in Australia. I found this in a recipe search for Sauerkraut as an ingredient. Wow! this was great...kind of a meat pie, only it's in a bread roll. I used a bread mix to make the dough as the frozen kind is not available here. Thanks for sharing.
