Sorry I've been MIA this past week or so. The hassle of moving means no internet and little time for posting once I did get it. It also means I didn't get to either of my challenges until the very end of the week, but I did get them done. In cooking this week the challenge was Russian. After perusing some websites of Russian food I finally settled on Piroshki which is basically a Pasty. Traditionally there are a variety of fillings that go into these delicious pockets, but I settled on ground beef and onions based on the tastes of the boy and I.
I used the recipe found here and the only thing I changed is I subbed garlic powder for dill and I baked at 400 for 17 minutes instead of frying them.
Basically you whip up a bread like dough
Cook your filling and let it cool.
Fill the pockets
Brush a beaten egg on top to help them brown in the oven.
Then bake and eat!
