    kitchengrrl's Note:

    These are tasty little pasties perfect for hand-held eating. Great to take along for a cool-weather picnic if you have a way to keep them warm, or just good comfort food on a chilly evening. I'm trying to figure out how best to freeze these for OAMC, so I can just pop one in the oven when I come home from school and have no energy to do anything. Any tips on that would be welcome. Additionally, I'm planning on using a homemade whole grain bread instead of the frozen storebought dough, but I don't have a recipe for that right now.

      Since I live a block away from a real Runza, and crave it all the time, I was delighted to find this recipe, which boasts the most authentic spice combination of the other recipes on the 'Zaar. Runzas have that unique European flavor and are tradionally made without cheese (though you can get them in many combinations now), I really like this recipe. I used Napa cabbage and a bread machine hamburger bun dough in place of the frozen bread dough. My yield was six medium size Runzas.
