Ever had a Runza? Ever been to Nebraska? I had never been to Nebraska, nor had I heard of a Runza. While visiting there recently, I had a Runza. Similar sandwiches/dishes are called different names but if you’re in Nebraska, it’s a Runza.
Since I only had one, I wasn’t totally sure how to make them but I was totally sure that I liked them . . a lot! My cooking enthusiast friend, Kim, lived many years in Nebraska (and may even be from there . . do they have construction cones in Nebraska?) I’ll never let Kim forget that she ran over those construction cones in my car.
Anyway, she said she makes Runzas so I did a little search on the Internet and made some of my own.
The dough recipe I used is Norm’s (or is it George? I always forget) Onion Rolls but I rolled them out and put the meat mixture in, folded them over, sealed them, let them rise a bit and baked them.
This batch I just partially baked, then froze in packages of two so we’ll have Runzas in the coming weeks. They’re so good! Thanks Elaine for introducing me to them.
