Runza Casserole

One of my husband’s old friends had a wife from Nebraska. She made this casserole she called “Runza Casserole”. It’s named after a restaurant chain only in Nebraska, or maybe some surrounding states? They have vendors who sell Runzas at the Nebraska Huskers home games, too. Anyway, it’s really good!

Brown 2 pounds ground beef or turkey. Add minced onion. Mix ground beef with about 1 cup of shredded cabbage and 1 cup of mild shredded cheddar cheese. Spread inside a 9×13 baking dish. Top with crescent roll dough. Bake as directed on the crescent dough. It only takes around 15 minutes in the oven. We serve this with onion rings, French fries, or tater tots. I like to add ketchup. Adam adds ranch dressing to everything, including Runza Casserole.

  1. Yum this looks great. I love all your recipes. You cook such wholesome food. I can imagine meal times are great family moments in your house. I would never have thought about putting cheese and cabbage together! I too loved being a homemaker and cooking for my family. Kids do remember food as good memories.
