Brown the beef then add all the veggies and herbs and salt and pepper and cook until tender. Raise the rolls according to the instructions on the package. On a floured board roll the rolls out to about 1/8 inch thick. Add 1 1/2 to 2 tbs of the beef mixture to the middle of the smashed roll. Put 2 tbs of the sauce on the beef. sprinkle with the cheese over the sauce. coat the edges of the roll with an egg wash (1 egg and a little water mixed well). stretch and roll the dough over and crimp the edges with a fork. poke a few vent holes in the top so it won’t blow up and egg wash the entire top. Bake on a greased sheet pan at 350 deg until the tops are browned. serve with the red sauce on the side or covered over the top
