Top Review by Delightful Girl

5 stars goes to the dough. This recipe is wonderful because it is easily personalizable. I happened to have some ground turkey in the freezer, so I used that as my meat. To season, I took the advice of Fairy Nuff and used hoisin sauce and soy sauce, which gave the meat a nice flavor. Wonderful!
