  • 16 pieces of Rhodes frozen unbaked roll dough
  • 1 pound of lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups of finely chopped cabbage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1–2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of milk


  1. Begin by placing the frozen rolls on parchment-covered baking sheets, allowing them to rise at room temperature until doubled in size (approximately 3-5 hours).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef. As it cooks, introduce butter, onion, and cabbage. Continue cooking until the beef is browned, and the onions and cabbage turn soft. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, shape each dough ball into a miniature pizza-like patty. Spoon a rounded portion of the hamburger mix into the center, then bring up the edges of the dough, pinching to seal. Roll gently to smooth the seams and place them seam side down on parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap for 30 minutes.
  5. Whisk together the egg and milk. Lightly brush the dough with the egg wash. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown, rotating the baking sheet halfway through.
