How to Make Runza Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Unroll a tube of crescent rolls into the bottom of a 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 7 minutes or until brown.
Step 3: Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown the hamburger and onion. You can add your choice of thickener if you prefer a more gravy-like texture.
Step 4: Once done, drain any excess oil from the hamburger before adding in the cabbage. Allow it to steam for several minutes.
Step 5: Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste.
Step 6: When the hamburger and cabbage mixture is done, spread it over the baked crescent dough.
Step 7: Then, sprinkle the cheese over the meat mixture.
Step 8: Unroll the second tube of the crescent rolls on top of the cheese.
Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven again and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cover the casserole with foil in the last 10 minutes to soften the crust.
