Rhodes Runzas (Bierocks)

Ok, folks!These cabbage biscuits brought back some special taste memories of when I was a child. My Aunt Annie, who is with the Lord today, used to make cabbage biscuits and it was always a favorite of mine. So, I found this recipe which is rather easy to make. My taste buds were happy :)

12 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, or 24 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold ( I covered them loosely with siren wrap to allow them thaw. The siren wrap will prevent them from getting hard on top until you start working with them.)
4 cups sliced cabbage
1 cup sliced yellow onion
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 ounces ground beef
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Saute cabbage and onion in oil. Cover and steam for 40 minutes. Brown ground beef in a large pan, and drain well. Add cabbage, onion, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Flatten each Texas™ roll, or 2 dinner rolls into a 6-inch circle. Divide filling among 12 circles (about 1/3 cup). Place 1 tablespoon mozzarella cheese on top of filling. Pull edges around filling and pinch to close.Place on a large sprayed baking sheet, pinched side down. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes.

Five Layer Dinner

I tried this recipe the other night and it was very good! I like the recipes that use the basics.

1 lb. ground beef, browned with salt and pepper
2 med. onions, chopped
8 slices American cheese
5 potatoes, sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Put hamburger in bottom of pan (I used a pan just a bit smaller than a 9x13). Put onions on top of hamburger meat, lay cheese on onions, then cover with potatoes and then cover with soup. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 30 minutes.
