    Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). In large skillet, cook beef and onions until thoroughly cooked; drain.

    Spoon half the meat filling in a 6-inch (15 cm) wide strip lengthwise down centre of dough to within 1-inch (2.5 cm) of short sides.
  • 6
    Spoon cheese filling over meat filling; spoon remaining meat filling evenly over cheese filling.

    Fold long sides of dough tightly over filling, overlapping edges in centre 1/4-inch (6 mm); firmly pinch centre seam and ends to seal. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
