Runza Casserole For Two


It’s much simpler to make and tastes just like the restaurant! My 4-year-old adored the casserole with hamburger and cabbage. In the event that I neglected to purchase a real onion, I’ve also made this with onion powder!

Just a little bit should be added to the raw hamburger, and then some more when the other ingredients are added.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 55 minutes



  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 ¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup warm water


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 4 slices process cheese food
  • salt and black pepper to taste



  1. In a big bowl, combine the flour, butter, sugar, yeast, and salt; add the warm water. To make a soft ball, stir the mixture. On a floured area, roll out the dough and knead it for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it becomes elastic. Put the dough in a basin, cover with a cloth, and let it rise for approximately an hour in a warm, dry place.
  2. Set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees C).
  3. A big skillet should be heated at medium-high. Cook and mix the beef and onion in the hot skillet for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the beef is browned and crumbly. Drain and discard oil. Add the cabbage and cook for 10 minutes, or until it has steamed and wilted. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder for seasoning.
  4. Divide the dough in two. To fit an 8×8-inch baking dish, roll each piece. One of the crusts should be pressed into the baking dish’s base and up its sides. Fill the crust with the hamburger mixture and top with cheese slices. Put the second crust on top of the cheese layer and seal the sides by pinching them together.
  5. For about 20 minutes, bake in the preheated oven until just faintly browned. For an additional 10 minutes, bake the casserole with the foil covering until the filling is heated. Before cutting, let sit for about 5 minutes.
