  • 1 and 1/2 pounds lean hamburger
  • 1 large onion diced (roughly 2 and 1/2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 envelope of dry Lipton Soup Mix
  • 1 medium-sized head of cabbage shredded
  • 36 frozen dough dinner rolls thawed
  • 4-6 tablespoons melted butter


  • Add hamburger, onion, salt, pepper and Lipton Soup Mix to a large non-stick skillet and cook on medium-high heat until pink is nearly gone.
  • Add cabbage to meat mixture. Cover and cook until cabbage is wilted.
  • Roll out each dinner roll with a rolling pin into a 5 to 6 inch round circle. Place two tablespoons of meat and cabbage mixture into the center of each rolled out dough. Fold dough around meat/cabbage mixture and seal by pinching together.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, place on cooling rack and brush with melted butter.


This recipe made 36 rolls with a bit of meat/cabbage mixture left over.
