How to Make Krautburgers

Krautburgers are really good, and they are actually the original pizza pockets. I made these for years before they came out with commercial stuffed pockets.

The nice thing about these is you can buy the frozen bread dough now, instead of making your own bread dough from scratch.

Cabbage Pockets

Meat Mixture:
Fry up about 1 lb hamburger in small particles. At the same time, boil 5 cups of shredded cabbage for 10 minutes. Combine the two, leaving in a little moisture. Season heavily with seasoned salt.

    Bun Mixture:
  • 1 pkg. dry yeast
  • 1/4 c. warm water
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. scalded milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 to 3 c. flour

Soften yeast in water. In mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, salt and milk. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in egg and yeast. Gradually add flour to form stiff dough. Cover; let stand in warm place until doubled. Toss onto a floured surface until no longer sticky. Pat out on board about 3/8 inch thick. Cut in 3 inch squares. Fill with meat mixture (about 1 Tbsp.). Let rise awhile--20 to 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. Makes about 15.
