PIZZA ROLLS - A QUICK PARTY SNACK

What do you make, when you should have gone grocery shopping yesterday, and hubby says "whats to snack on?" Hmmmm, well, I did a quick check of what I had on hand and came up with this idea. The possibilities are endless; tuck in a few chopped mushrooms or pieces of broccoli, or if you aren't in the mood for pizza, fill them with cooked chicken and Alfredo sauce?

This really isn't a "recipe" as much as it is an idea. Make sure you buy the large egg roll wrappers (they are great to have on hand since they stay good in the fridge for a long time).
First, sliver the pepperoni and shred the cheese. If you use any other meat or veggie, make sure you cut it fairly small so that the cheese and sauce can melt around it (the filling will get hotter if you keep the ingredients on the small side as well).

In one corner of the wrapper, stack meat first, then cheese and sauce on top, then fold the point of the corner over the filling and tuck in the sides of the wrapper and roll them up. When you are done rolling, you will come to the pointed corner of the wrapper. "Glue" the wrapper point onto the pizza roll with a slurry of flour and water (should be the consistency of Elmer's Glue).


Fry these pizza rolls in canola oil at about 350 degrees. Watch the first few carefully since they brown very fast. If they seem to be browning too fast, turn the heat down a little.

These are addictive, and we enjoyed them dipped in ranch dressing.

These look delicious, Coleen. You are so good to your hubby! My neighbor is Thai and she makes homemade eggrolls all the time. I've never done them because I just eat hers.

I would love to make these! My son would go nuts - he loves pizza pockets and I don't buy them.
Haven't seen those wrappers around here, but I will surely look for them. I tend to only see the eggroll and wonton ones here.

GREAT party idea, so cheesy!

Kaitlin said...

You are SO creative! I would never of thought to do that. My husband would flip for these! Oh, and about the individual cheese enchiladas, no, I don't fry the tortilla first. I really don't think there's any need to, but it's really whatever you want to do! :)

Coleen, these are positively BRILLIANT!! I cannot tell you how well received these would be here. I would be the Queen of the Universe while these lasted, grins.
