I made these last night. Bierocks. Go to that link for the crust recipe because I improvised and my crust was not nearly as nice as hers. It was dry and I was upset that they didn't look very pretty. The good news is that they tasted fantastic, crust included! So what I did was great, just not very eye-catching.
For the filling I just made it up as I went along. But here is the list of what I used:
* 1 head purple cabbage, chopped
* 1 small eggplant, peeled and cubed
* 1 package sliced mushrooms
* 1/2 small chopped onion, chopped
* 1 large bag frozen, thawed, drained spinach
* 1 cup ricotta cheese
* 1/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
* salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onion and cabbage in EVOO. Once wilted, add mushrooms, then eggplant.
Roll out 12 dough balls. Fill with a few spoons of the mixture. Fold up dough around mixture. Brush with a bit of melted butter.
Mine were so crumbly that they kept breaking all over the place and there was just no way to flip them over with a seam side down.
But it turns out it didn't matter. They tasted fantastic. Two made me feel REALLY full at dinner. After they cooled, I wrapped most of them individually in plastic wrap and stuck them in the freezer. They make a fantastic single girl dinner or hot lunch.
I know they look small but they are surprisingly filling. You could certainly use up leftover meats or make mini calzones. I'm pretty excited to have some ready-made meals in the freezer.
