Recipe! Irish Leftovers

Yesterday was my first St. Patrick's Day as an Irish man's wife. I performed my wifely duty and cooked corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and beer bread. I have never, ever, in my life eaten corned beef and cabbage before. The words just sound gross. Turns out though that it's really, really good. I'm a corned beef and cabbage convert.

We ate the leftover corned beef in the form of reubens for lunch (Frank's Sour Kraut - also a big yum) and were left with a giant container of cabbage and potatoes. Soooo, I made my version of a Runza. For those of you who don't live in Nebraska, Runza is a fast food restaurant with a deliciously weird sandwich called, what else, a Runza. It's ground beef and cabbage baked into a bread pocket. There are versions with cheese, mushrooms, whatever.

I browned a pound of ground turkey with onions, garlic and hamburger seasoning. Then I chopped up about 1/4 of a head of the boiled cabbage from last night and threw that in. I also mixed in a scoop of the sour kraut leftover from lunch and a small can of mushrooms.

I scooped the mixture into a premade pie crust.

Drenched it with shredded sharp cheddar.

And covered it with the second pie crust.

And ate it. Yummmmm...
