Easy Cabbage/Egg Pirojki

This is one of our favorites, by our I mean Russians! A classic Russian dish! Usually its a bit of a hassle with preparing the dough from scratch, so I got a little lazy. I use french bread dough :)
The filling for pirojki can be just about anything you want. Some of the traditional fillings include cabbage, potatoes, mean, jam or fruit. In the United States the dish that is defined as pirojki (pirogi) is usually incorrect. Pirojki (pirogi) are not boiled or fried dumplings. The boiled dumplings are actually two different dishes that I will make shortly in the future.  Fried dumplings are also a completely different dish. Pirojki are baked!

1 roll of Pillsbury french bread dough
1 egg, whisked
2-3 tbs veggie oil
2 cups of finely shredded cabbage
4 eggs, hard boiled
1/2 cup yellow chopped onion
2 oz tomato sauce
salt, pepper

1. In a medium skillet, heat up oil and add chopped onion, saute until transparent.

2. Add the finely shredded cabbage, cook until soft.

3. Add the tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Mix very well and cook until completely cooked and soft.

4. Add the cabbage to a large mixing bowl. Add the diced eggs after the cabbage has cooled. Mix well.

~Preheat the oven to 350.
5. Take out the french bread dough out of the package. Cut into 1 inch slices

6. Flatten each slice to about 1/8 inch.

7. Place about a spoonful of the mixture to center of the circle

8. Press the edges together starting with the very center two opposite ends the pinch the ends down the sides.

9. Repeat with all the dough.

10. Grease a baking sheet and place all the pirojki onto it. Brush the pirojki with the whisked egg using a brush.

11. Bake fore about 15 minutes or until pirojki are golden brown.

    Pirogi and pirojki are NOT one in the same. Pirogi is the same as Verinoki or Pelmeni. Priojki is the equivalent to Rolls in the US. It’s not that we’re wrong. We’re just different. :o)
