GREAT recipe on par with mom's! Added in minced carrot and used a 50/50 mix of extra lean/80% lean pork. Making the filling the night before wrapping/cooking is a great timesaver! Don't go crazy with the oil and water - I used a large, well-seasoned cast iron pan and 1/4 c of water for each batch, and everything came out awesome.

I am a SAHM of a very picky 3 year old. The only things I can count on her eating are peanut butter sandwiches (no jelly, but sometimes honey), various fruits (grapes, blueberries, apples, bananas, mandarin oranges, watermelon), chicken nuggets (only the processed kind), macaroni and cheese, and a few veggies (various beans, corn and peas).
