First of all, no need for congratulations; I’m not pregnant! If I were, I’d have ice-cream with this. 🙂 I’ll admit, though, this is a decidedly different combination of ingredients, perhaps a bit odd, and it might just cause cravings!

Runzas (Bierocks)

The Runza: Probably the original Hot Pocket! A sweet home-made dough stuffed with a ground beef/cabbage mixture. This recipe walks you through all the steps

I’m confident, following the instructions below, that even a non Volgan can turn out beautiful Runzas on their first try. 🙂

Freshly Baked Runza - you can't imagine how good they smell!
