  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, shortening, egg, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  2. In a skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce. Remove from the heat; set aside. Punch dough down; divide into 16 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, gently roll out and stretch each piece into a 5-in. circle. Top each circle with two pieces of cheese and about 3 tablespoons beef mixture. Bring dough over filling to center; inch edges to seal.
  3. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

The dough was fine, but when it baked, it was really crumbly ... actually, it was kinda like a biscuit ... it was okay, but just okay ... thanks!

These were really good! I did season up the hamburger mixture a bit. These could probably be filled with anything and be great. They reheated well in a 350 oven for 20 minutes too.

I followed the bun part of this recipe exactly and the dough was too wet to handle. So I had to add a quite abit of flour to it to make it workable. I used hand and cheese for fillings and I a...

Followed the bread recipe exactly, but I didn't make the meat mixture. Instead, stuffed with ham and cheese. They were very good but browned very quickly. For that reason, I would reduced temp. ...

This is a great dish for kids. Adults will probably find it edible, but not their first choice. You want to make your kids happy for a meal, make this.

MMMM MMMM Good! Definately will make again. You can put anything in the middle: roast beef and mozerella cheese, chicken and bacon with ranch, etc. Very delicious!

Great recipe. I used butter instead of the shortening and did have to add more flour than called for. Dough was super easy to work with and tasted great. I changed up the meat. I used ground tur...

I only made the Bread part. I have been looking for a yummy bun and this was it. I am a little upset I cut the recipe in half and I wish I didn't. They are so good I need to make more for dinner...
