Anytime Dan and I order carry out from an Asian restaurant we order a few egg rolls or spring rolls as a side. I can’t get enough of them, however, they are not the healthiest since they are fried, not baked. So I decided to make a unique egg roll filled with some of our favorite (staple) ingredients.
I would have made egg rolls ages ago if I realized how easy the process would be. You can find wonton wrappers at your local grocery store. Check either the freezer section or in the produce area (I found mine in the produce area near other fresh Asian ingredients). This recipe was just enough for a package of wonton wrappers and they turned out great!
Honestly it took much less time than I expected to prep the rolls which only took about 15 minutes (see photos below for a simple guide to folding the egg rolls). Then I brushed them with olive oil and baked them for 15 minutes, turning them half way through. Very simple. They definitely taste best right out of the oven but you could reheat them in the oven or toaster oven to give them the crispy texture again.
When it comes to thawing and freezing ground beef there are a few tips I have for keeping you and your family safe. I often buy 3 pounds or more of ground beef at a time to save money. When I get home I immediately re-package the ground beef into plastic freezer bags with one pound in each bag. I make sure to get out as much air as possible before sealing them. I also label and date each one of them before putting them in the freezer. Ground beef can be frozen for about 4 months before it should be used. When thawing the beef, I place it on the lowest shelf in the refrigerator in a container to prevent any juices from escaping. I do this about one day before I plan to cook with it.
We will be celebrating our daughter’s fifth birthday on Super Bowl Sunday this year and you can bet we’ll be having some delicious appetizers like these cheesesteak egg rolls!
