1 1/2 cups sauerkraut
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seed
1/4 cup Swiss cheese , grated
1 teaspoon poppy seed

In a 12”, deep Dutch oven, brown the ground beef, drain. Add sauerkraut and spices, stir well to combine. Remove from Dutch oven and set aside.

On a floured surface, knead together the 2 loaves of dough and flatten to ½” thick. Pour the beef mixture into the center of the dough, sprinkle with the Swiss cheese. Gather the dough around the filling and seal together by pinching the dough.

Preheat the oil in the Dutch oven. Place the ball of stuffed dough into the oven with the gathered dough on the bottom. Let rise for 45 minutes with 4 coals on the top and 2 under the oven. Bake at 350°F for 35 to 45 minutes until you can smell the bread. Remove from oven and serve hot with a little mustard.
