Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

I hate to admit it, but I have had the egg roll wrappers in the freezer for a few weeks because I really wasn’t sure how well they would work.  I envisioned trying to roll them only to have them unroll during cooking.  Was I ever pleasantly surprised and now I have all sorts of different ideas about what I could put in egg roll wrappers, even if I only go so far as to make my own egg rolls next time I make Chinese food!

Here is what I used to make them.

I started by browning the ground beef and onions in the microwave on high heat until browned and the juices ran clear and then drained it.

I added the cheese, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and mustard to the browned ground beef.

Mixed it all in and then placed the bowl in the fridge for about 5 minutes to let it cool.

When it was time to roll them, I started by brushing water on the outside edge of the egg rolls and then spooning about 2 tbsp. of the ground beef mixture into the centre of the egg roll wrapper before folding in 3 of the corners towards the centre.

I rolled the whole thing towards the unfolded corner, placing the roll corner side down on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and continued to do the same with the rest.

In a small bowl, I mixed together the olive oil, second amount of garlic powder and parmesan to form a paste.

And brushed this mixture over the tops of each roll.

I baked them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until they were browned and the wrapper part was crispy.

And then served them with a side of oven fries and dill pickle slices!

  1. Great idea for when you get bored with cheeseburgers! You can do so much with an egg roll wrapper. I remember when I lived in NY state I used to get dessert egg rolls at the local farmer’s market. Let me tell you, this food stand had all kinds of sweet and savoury egg rolls, maybe 20 different types. My favorite was always the blueberry pie one.
