lean ground beef
ground black pepper
sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (1 pound) loaf
frozen bread dough, thawed
These are very tasty! I was confused as to how to form the dough, and I think mine looked more like calzones, but they still tasted great! A tip I learned from another recipe is to gather up the opposite corners of the square-shaped dough and squeeze them together, then to put the bierrock on the cookie sheet seam side down, so it looks like a bun or ball. Hope that helps!
Filling was twice what was needed to use one frozen loaf. Used crescent rolls for rest of filling..did not like it. If you're going to make this, use 2 loaves of frozen bread, add 1 tbsp. worchestershire, and dip in any but yellow mustard!
I made this about 5 nights ago and last night DELISH!! My husband wants to know when its on the menu again! I made the bread dough in my breadmaker with the plain white bread recipe, I also added diced green pepper to it. I also suggest slicing the cheese, rather than grading and adding right before rolling up, as the cheese gets lost in the mix.
We used to go to a restaurant called 'My Favorite Piroshki' which specializes in beautiful sandwiches baked in bread dough. This recipe reminds us of one we ate there many times. I add some finely grated carrot and then put the cheese in after the meat cools so it won't 'disappear' into the meat mixture. I also cut the onion down to a very small amount as the flavor seemed too dominating.
Just a remark, Bierrocks are not german. It's a traditional polish dish... yummi but polish
Yummy! I used butter tastin' Grands and followed the advice about keepin' it all cool for preparation. These things baked up deliciously, and I used a little chili powder and seasoning salt to give them a little kick. Hope Hubby likes them, if there's any left when he gets home!! :)
These were wonderful! I left out the cheese and they reminded me of the Runzas I used to eat as a little girl in the midwest. They freeze well and make for a quick, yummy lunch. I enjoy bringing them to friends for lunch. Everyone loves them.
I used the dough from "Amazing whole wheat pizza crust" submitted by Marla to make this. The original recipe serving size of both recipes turns out to be the perfect amount to make 6-7 Bierrocks! I also made it without cheese, it turned out great. thanks
