I decided I am going to try a few new things for my blog. I love pinterest and try all kinds of food recipes from my pins. For Fridays I am going to try and post a recipe I have tried and how it turned out. School just started in our district and again it is a time for me to come up with creative lunches for teen gal and lil man. I had found a pin for pizza egg rolls but it did not have instructions, only pictures. So I found another recipe and tied the two together to come up with my modified version for lunch for the kids the next day. I would have gotten this blog posted earlier today but my husband took me out on a lunch date. It has been a beautiful bright sunny day, cloudless sky and we have had a wonderful afternoon. (smile smile)
Here is step by step for pizza egg rolls:
Here are the ingredients I used including cooking spray, string cheese sticks (I used what I had which was mozzarella and cheddar swirl), pepperoni (I used turkey because I feel it’s healthier and a lot less greasy), egg roll wrappers (found in the produce/bagged salad section of the grocery store), and butter/light olive oil (about a tablespoon each) melted together with a little garlic and onion powder and italian seasoning sprinkled in….You will need to preheat the oven at 375.
I got out a small cup of water and placed near my work surface. On waxed paper (just my preference) on a wrapper a little closer to the closest corner to me I placed 3 pepperoni on the bottom, a cheese stick on top and 3 more pepperoni on top of the cheese. I then dipped my fingers and wet all 4 corners of the egg roll wrapper.
I then rolled the closest corner around the mixture as snug as possible.I then tucked the 2 side corners as shown and rolled the rest of the way. I then placed them on a greased baking sheet and brushed all over the top with the butter/olive oil mixture. Bake 10-15 minutes then turn them, brush the butter mixture over the top again and bake another 10 -15 minutes until both sides are golden brown and because I didn’t have pizza sauce and I used traditional spaghetti sauce to dip it in.
It was such an easy recipe the kids loved it, in particularly lil man. I warmed the pizza egg rolls up the next morning, added a container of sauce, threw in some plain frozen strawberries in another container, a frozen “gogurt” both thawed by lunch and he said it was the best lunch ever! (awww I love to hear that)! Let me know how you like it!
