I had never made anything like this before, but my son requested it. They were fantastic! The dough for the bread is delicious - a little bit of sweetness to it. The only changes I made were to use Grillers, a meatless substitute for the ground beef. The filling is so flavorful, we didn't miss the meat at all. I also added a little garlic, and my family doesn't like olives (although I love them), so I omitted them. To speed things up a bit, I used shredded frozen hash brown potatoes, and these worked great. Those two substitutions did make the cooking go more quickly. We served them with a fruity salsa, a nice compliment to the flavors. Don't skip the egg wash either; the little pockets have a lovely shine and texture that you wouldn't get otherwise. The recipe is a little time-consuming, but the family asked me to put this in the regular rotation. Thanks for a great recipe!
