Fleischkuekle

Ingredients:

For the filling:
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
Salt & pepper
olive oil

For the dough:
4 cups flour
2 eggs
1 pint half & half (plus a couple tbsp milk if needed)
pinch of salt
Oil for frying

Directions:

1. In medium pan, heat 1 TBSP olive oil on med heat.
2. Add onion and garlic to heated oil, saute for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add ground beef. Season with salt & pepper. Cook until just brown. Drain.
4. Set filling aside to cool a bit while you're making the dough.
5. Start heating 3" of frying oil to 350F in a deep pot or fondue pot.
6. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, egg, and a pinch of salt.
7. Mix in half & half a couple tbsp at a time until the dough is sticky but manageable.
8. Put dough on a floured surface and knead a few times until no longer sticky. Divide into 8 (or 4 if you halved the recipe) balls.
9. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out each ball into a 6" diameter circle, the dough should be thin but not so thin it will tear when folded.
10. Place a generous amount of filling on one side of each circle.
11. Fold dough over and pinch edges closed.
12. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until dough is golden.
13. Drain on a paper towel for a minute or so.

If you're just making it for you & Rahb, I suggest halving the dough recipe. It makes 4 fairly large fleischkuekle and Stevie & I were both full after 1 each. We also had mashed potatoes and coleslaw.

Unless you want to freeze the extras (don't fry them first). Leftover fried ones don't keep very well, they get kinda soggy unless you have a toaster over to reheat them.
