All-American Cheeseburger Egg Rolls: A Fun and Flavorful Twist

Craving a cheeseburger but looking for something a little different? These All-American Cheeseburger Egg Rolls are the perfect solution! They combine the juicy flavors of a classic cheeseburger with the crispy, golden goodness of egg rolls. They're perfect for a fun appetizer, party food, or even a quick and satisfying weeknight meal.

Ingredients:

  • For the Filling:
    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 yellow onion, chopped
    • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • For the Wrapping:
    • 24 egg roll wrappers
    • 12 slices American cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • For Frying:
    • ¾ cup vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. Brown the Beef: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up into large crumbles (think pea-sized pieces) for about 5-7 minutes. It's important to minimize breaking up the beef too much to retain a heartier texture. Once browned, stir in the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Remove the cooked beef mixture from the pan and set aside.

  2. Sauté the Veggies: Melt the butter in the same skillet you used for the beef. Add the chopped onion and green bell pepper. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned.

  3. Combine and Cool: Return the cooked beef mixture to the skillet with the softened vegetables. Stir well to combine all the ingredients for the filling. Let the filling cool slightly while you prepare the egg roll wrappers.

  4. Assemble the Egg Rolls: Lay out a clean work surface and have a small bowl of water nearby. Place one egg roll wrapper on the surface with a corner facing you. Add a half slice of cheese in the center of the wrapper. Top the cheese with 3 tablespoons of the cooled filling.

  5. Wrap it Up: Fold the bottom left corner of the wrapper diagonally over the filling. Fold the left and right sides of the wrapper inwards, towards the center. Moisten the edges with a little water to seal them. Tightly roll up the egg roll, forming a cigar shape. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

  6. Fry to Perfection: Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the oil reaches around 350°F (175°C), carefully add 3-4 egg rolls at a time. Fry for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy.

  7. Drain and Enjoy: Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried egg rolls from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Repeat frying the remaining egg rolls in batches. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauces like ketchup, mustard, or sweet and sour sauce.

Tips:

  • For a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the ground beef while cooking.
  • Feel free to experiment with different vegetables in your filling. Diced mushrooms, jalapenos, or shredded carrots would all be delicious additions.
  • Want to go the extra mile? Toast your sesame seeds and sprinkle them over the hot egg rolls before serving for an extra visual and textural touch.
