  • 20 rolls Rhodes dough
  • 1 1/2 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 medium carrot shredded
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Corn oil for deep frying


  • Place 20 dinner rolls on a lightly floured cookie sheet, and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough thaw and proof for at least 1 hour at room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a medium skillet and sauté onions until they become translucent. Add in the shredded carrot and cook until it begins to soften.
  • Add in the ground turkey breast and keep stirring until it's fully cooked. Mix in the shredded mozzarella and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Flatten each dinner roll into a disk, making sure to leave the middle a little thicker than the edges.
  • Fill each flattened dinner roll with 1 heaping tablespoon of the meat filling and pinch the edges of the dough together to make a half moon shape.
  • To ensure that the edges are pinched well, I go around a second time folding over the edge and pinching them again. Once all the piroshki are closed up, let them proof for another 30 minutes at room temperature.
  • Fill a heavy bottomed pot or pan with about 2 inches of corn oil and heat it over high heat.
  • Deep fry the piroshki for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
