I decided to do something special for Superbowl Sunday and whip up a bunch of finger foods that I would never typically eat. Among them were these Cheeseburger Egg Rolls. And as incredibly depressed, soul-crushing, and dispiriting the first three quarters of the game were, and as amazingly inspiring, unbelievable, and jaw-dropping the last quarter of the game was…
I remember these egg rolls more clearly than the football.
And I’m a HUGE Patriots fan.
That’s how amazingly scrumptious these egg rolls are.
Yes, they are incredibly fattening. And, like most egg rolls, they are easily over or under done, and not that great after they’ve gotten cold, which happens very quickly.
However, if you get them in that sweet spot, where the wrapper is golden brown and crispy, the inside is hot, the cheese is melted, the condiments are sharp and tangy, the meat gives you that umami fullness…simply amazing. If I ever want to fall hard off my diet wagon, I’d go straight for these.
This was an Allrecipes.com dish that came up on the emails they send you for what you absolutely MUST cook for Superbowl Sunday. I didn’t know that simply clicking the link would start such a star-crossed love affair!
The directions look far more long/complicated than they actually are! Cook some ground beef…put in egg roll wrapper with cheese and whatever condiments you like on your cheeseburger…roll up wrapper and seal with water…fry! They came out golden brown and warm through, with the cheese melted and the ketchup and mustard warm and creamy. And went so fast I have noooooo pictures! Will absolutely, positively make again. I want them right now, actually!
