I made these last night.  Bierocks.  Go to that link for the crust recipe because I improvised and my crust was not nearly as nice as hers.  It was dry and I was upset that they didn't look very pretty.  The good news is that they tasted fantastic, crust included!  So what I did was great, just not very eye-catching. 

For the filling I just made it up as I went along.  But here is the list of what I used:

* 1 head purple cabbage, chopped
* 1 small eggplant, peeled and cubed
* 1 package sliced mushrooms
* 1/2 small chopped onion, chopped
* 1 large bag frozen, thawed, drained spinach
* 1 cup ricotta cheese
* 1/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
* salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion and cabbage in EVOO.  Once wilted, add mushrooms, then eggplant. 

Add spinach.

Add cheeses.

Roll out 12 dough balls.  Fill with a few spoons of the mixture.  Fold up dough around mixture.  Brush with a bit of melted butter.

Mine were so crumbly that they kept breaking all over the place and there was just no way to flip them over with a seam side down.

But it turns out it didn't matter.  They tasted fantastic.  Two made me feel REALLY full at dinner.  After they cooled, I wrapped most of them individually in plastic wrap and stuck them in the freezer.  They make a fantastic single girl dinner or hot lunch. 

I know they look small but they are surprisingly filling.  You could certainly use up leftover meats or make mini calzones.  I'm pretty excited to have some ready-made meals in the freezer.

Those look delish!! I took your advice and ran into my local TJMaxx this weekend while I was home. I had to dig a little but found a lot of great Lilly paper products. Thanks so much for the tip, I stocked up on Lilly notebooks and paper plates!!
