Runza Burgers

Runza Burgers


"Originally from Iowa, Runzas were a staple in our family dinners. Usually the beef and cabbage mixture was stuffed in fresh bread dough. This is an easy and quick variation that is a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables! My 10 year old son loves them."

My husband was a little skeptical about the combination but had two burgers and commented how good it was several times. My teenager liked it as did my picky 11 year old. I will make it again!...

WOW! This was great...even my very very picky 7 year old asked for more and I can not stress how picky she is.

Our ratio of meat to cabbage was way off (it was mostly cabbage) but it was delicious. Served it over bread like sloppy joes, but I actually preferred it without the bread. Will definitely make ...
