  • A couple dozen larger beet leaves, wiped clean.
  • Bread dough(a pound or so)
  • 2 T butter
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 c cream
  • handful of fresh dill



Step 1

Pinch off a small nub of dough and roll it in your hands into an elongated shape. Place the dough on a beet leaf and roll the leaf around it(leaving the ends unwrapped). Place each roll into a buttered baking dish. Cover the dish with a clean kitchen towel and let the bread rise for an hour or so.

Heat oven to 350. Bake the Beetniks for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the cream sauce: Melt the buttter in a saucepan, saute onions and garlic until soft, stir in the cream and fresh chopped dill. Bring to a bubbling simmer. Remove beetniks from the oven. Pour the cream sauce evenly over top. Return to oven for 10 min.

Ready to serve.
