Piragas national food (dish) of Latvia

Instructions:

Prepare hot roll mix according to package directions. In a large pan, combine ham, bacon, onion and pepper. Cook on stovetop until the bacon is just barely cooked. Drain excess fat. Roll out the dough and place a tablespoon of the filling on the edge of the dough, stretch the dough over the filling and using a glass dipped in flour, use it to cut the dough so you make a half-circle shape with the filling in the middle. Continue making more rolls, rolling out the dough as needed. Place rolls on a cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg mixed with a little black coffee. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You can also add caraway seeds to the dough. These freeze well. They never last in our house to have any to freeze!

Info:

Traditionaly, coffee is drunk when making these. You will need some black coffee to add to the beaten egg, but it is optional.
