A New Favorite

A friend recently introduced me to my new favorite meal--Bierocks! I loved them so much I've made them twice in the past two weeks!  The great part about these bierocks is they are super simple (blame Sandra Lee...)!  They are so wonderful I had to share! 

I browned 1 pound of beef with a small onion, pepper, and garlic salt in the skillet. In the sauce pan, I melted a half stick of butter and wilted 3 cups of fresh shredded cabbage on medium heat for approximately 5 minutes. (The recipe called for 2 cups, but I like a little extra.) After both were done, I mixed them together.

The first time I made these bierocks I used a loaf of Rhodes bread, but this time I decided to use individual Rhodes dinner rolls and it worked ssoo much better!  I had to roll each one out individually of course, but I didn't mind. I had my handy dandy Pampered Chef roller!

After I rolled out the dinner roll, I put 2-3 T. of the meat and cabbage mixture in the dough. My friend added a little Velveeta to each bierock and it tasted delicious so I did the same. (Can you really go wrong with Velveeta?) Then, I pulled each edge to the middle and placed it on a greased cookie sheet.

I only set out 16 rolls to rise, but had enough mixture left for 2 more bierocks. (Don't they look nice all lined up on the pan?)  I baked them at 350 for 15 minutes, took them out and buttered the tops, and then baked them for 5 more minutes.

They turned out as perfect as I knew they would! I wish I had the better camera out so you could see just how perfect they looked inside!  You will just have to try them out for yourself! 

Because I know that all posts are better with pictures of Logan, here is a picture of him playing in snow for the first time a couple of weeks ago. He refused to take his pacifier out, but he enjoyed himself. (You'll notice the broom in the background...Katy wouldn't go outside unless I swept her a path...)

Here is a quick video of Logan making his elephant sound. You have to listen closely or you might miss it! He doesn't "perform" very often so I am glad I caught it!

I am so glad to hear they turned out--I've been eyeing the recipe for sometime but was never sure about working with frozen bread. Can't wait to try them!
