These meat-and-cabbage-mixture filled sweet rolls make a great main dish
and are also great as a snack. They reheat well
so leftovers are also great! Sauerkraut can be used in place of the cabbage for more of a 'kraut flavor'.
1 1/2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups warm water
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup shortening
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound ground Italian sausage
1 cup chopped onion
3 cups shredded cabbage
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded, processed American cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
① To Make Sweet Dough: In a medium bowl combine the yeast, sugar and water and mix together; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in flour, dry milk, baking powder and shortening, then knead mixture for 10 minutes, adding as little flour as necessary. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes, then knead again.
② To Make Filling: Meanwhile, brown beef, sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium high heat. Drain extra fat from skillet, then stir in cabbage, mustard, salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Add cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese is melted.
③ Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
④ Flatten a piece of dough. Place large spoonful of meat filling onto dough and fold over to form a round bun. Lay folded-side-down in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
⑤ Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
