Mozzarella Cabbage Burgers

Christina Haley


Since I have been introduced to these delicious little guys, I have added my own seasoning, a little butter and mozzarella which gives them a creamy richer flavor. A traditional recipe brought to a whole new level :)

How to Make Mozzarella Cabbage Burgers


  1. dissolve yeast in warm water, add sugar let rest 5 minutes. Mix in oil, salt and egg. Add flour.
  2. knead dough about 5 minutes, place in bowl and cover (I use a tea towel) let rise for one hour (Its draft free and comfy inside a microwave, that is where I put mine)
  3. While dough is rising, while browning the ground beef add all seasonings and onion. (drain if a fattier beef blend is used) add shredded cabbage and cook down until the cabbage turns translucent and begins to brown.
  4. quickly stir in butter and mozzarella. Set aside so it cools down.
  5. punch dough down and knead about 3 minutes, let rise another hour
  6. punch dough down and roll out into about a 18x18 inch square. It should end up being 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness.
  7. cut into 16 even squares
  8. put 1/3 C of filling in a square of dough
  9. fold and pinch together one corner at a time
  10. flip over and put on baking sheet. (I bake off 8 at a time so they have room in between them)
  11. bake until nicely browned about 25 minutes at 325 degrees, brush with melted butter immediately.
