+ 1/2 lb. ground beef

+ 1/4 c. chopped onion
+ 1 c. frozen diced potatoes, thawed
+ 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
+ 1/2 tsp. salt

What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. In a large skillet over high heat, cook beef, carrot, and onion 6 to 8 minutes, or until meat is browned. Drain liquid from skillet. Add potatoes, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to meat mixture; mix well and cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

Brush edges of dough with egg and fold over meat mixture, forming semicircles. With a fork, press edges together firmly to seal. Place on baking sheet and brush with remaining egg.
