SO GOOD!!!! These "burgers" are super tasty and very easy to make. My family has been making these forever. They are from a restaurant in NE. When I got married, I made these for my DH and he LOVED them. For the dough, I usually make my own, but if you are short on time you can use frozen dough (Rhodes loaves). They freeze very well. When I make them, I usually make a big batch and freeze the ones we don't eat that day. Dipping in Ranch Dressing is oh so delicious. You can add so many different things instead of the cabbage mixture. I have made breakfast ones that I put in eggs, cheese, and sausage or bacon. Very good as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef with the onion. Drain the grease.
  2. In another pan, saute shredded cabbage in butter or margarine.
  3. Combine the meat and cabbage, adding salt and pepper.
  4. Roll out the dough. Make sure you roll the dough out thin or else the runzas will be all bread when you bite into them.
  5. Cut into 7" or 8" squares.
  6. Put some cabbage-meat mixture in the center of each square.
  7. Top with the mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bring the corners together; dampen the edges so they are secure.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.
