Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

This recipe is the perfect summer cookout appetizer – it perfectly encapsulates all those cheeseburger flavors in the perfect portable bite! Pair with thousand island or your fave burger condiments!

NOTE: serving size is appx. 12 egg rolls depending on how much you fill them!

1 package of egg roll wrappers, (I used the Dynasty Egg Roll/Spring Roll Wrappers)

1 package of ground beef, appx. 16 oz.

1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

4-6 pickle spears, diced

1/4 cup red onion, diced

1/4-1/2 cup avocado oil, to fry your egg rolls

Seasonings: garlic powder, salt, and pepper

Optional: Thousand Island Dressing

Optional: beaten egg/water to seal your egg rolls

The recipe:

Prep your pickles and onions by dicing them into small pieces for the filling, the smaller the better.

In a skillet on medium heat, cook your ground beef with your seasonings til cooked through. Add your cheddar cheese and saute until melted.

Lay one egg roll wrapper on a work surface with one corner pointed toward you like a diamond.

Spoon approximately 2-3 tablespoons of your ground beef filling onto each egg roll wrapper. Add in your desired amount of diced pickles & red onion on top.

Fold the bottom corner up and over the filling. Fold the left and right corners toward the center. Push the egg roll away from you and roll it toward the top corner.

Optional: use the optional beaten egg/water to seal the edges of the wrappers as you go. 

Pour 1/2 to 1 inch of avocado oil into a deep pot/skillet.

Fry 3-4 egg rolls at a time, turning occasionally, until browned all over, approximately 3-5 minutes.

Drain on paper towels, then serve with dipping sauce of your choice.

Enjoy! xx
