Runza Casserole

2 pounds ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cans ready to bake crescent rolls
1 package (about 8 slices) Swiss cheese (I use 2 cups shredded Chedder)
1 head cabbage, finely shredded (I use the packaged shredded)
1 medium onion, diced


Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with 1 package of crescent rolls.

Brown ground beef with cabbage and onions. Drain grease from ground beef. Combine ground beef, cabbage and onion with cream of mushroom soup. Pour over crescent rolls. Layer top of ground beef mixture with Swiss cheese. Open second can of crescent rolls and layer over top of Swiss cheese, trying to cover all the cheese, so the cheese does not become browned during baking. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes.






I have a smaller version I also make

Runza Casserole


Ingredients
1 LB Ground Beef
Onions to taste
Salt and pepper
1 can crescent rolls
1/4 head cabbage
cheddar cheese - shreaded
Procedure
Brown ground beef, cabbage, onion, salt and pepper. Drain
Lightly roll 1/2 can of crescent rolls and place in the bottom of a
8x8 pan. Spread the hamburger mixture in the pan. Add cheese.
Roll out the other 1/2 of the crescent rolls and place on top of the
ground beef mixture. Brush lightly with melted butter.
Bake at 350 degrees until rolls are done (Approx 10-20 minutes)

This one does not have the soup in it. I have made the larger one without soup too.

Kitchenelf,

I'll send you the recipe as soon as I reach my hubby in the UK.......he'll be back in KZ in a few days and will be happy to send me the recipe for the chicken pie.......but the basics are.......2 cups of cooked chopped chicken, one 10oz package of cooked peas and carrots, a cup of white seasoned sauce with 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and started with chicken broth (really does add to the flavor) half-whole cup of cooked chopped onions,
once you have the pie shell down add the onions, peas and carrots, chopped chicken and or turkey, sauce, top off with a top pastry or if you want to really get raves with a crisscross of layers...........I like to brush some eggwhite for a nice touch.....and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.......

You've got to be from the midwest! No one anywhere else ever knew what I was talking about when I mentioned Runza. I make them at home every now and then.

My Aunt Inez worked for the Betty Crocker test kitchens up in Minneapolis and helped write that first cookbook. I have her copy of the first edition, and it's still in pretty good shape. Of course, to me, it's priceless.

While in Korea my friends housegirl fixed lunch for all of us. (we were playing cards)
she browned hamburger, onions and garlic. Added a head of cabbage and when it was about done she added cooked rice ( a couple of cups) and the soy sauce to taste.
I use to fix it quite often....

Never heard of putting rice in it, but it sounds like it works. We always put our runza filling in squares of bread dough, seal them and bake. Also add spaghetti sauce, or pizza sauce, both with or without various cheeses. There are other variations, too.
