Saturday night at the Centola house meant my dad cooking hamburgers. This is a tradition that has been kept alive by myself and my siblings. This past Saturday, however, I wanted to do something a little different. So staying true to my dad and allowing my creativity to come out, I made Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls.
The sauce is a mixture of Ketchup, Hoisin Sauce, Soy Sauce and Ginger. One day I will measure out these ingredients. Here is the recipe for the Egg Rolls.
1 pound Ground Beef
1/4 cup Onions, minced
1 tablespoon Garlic, minced
Creole Seasoning to taste
8 ounces Smoked Cheddar Cheese, grated
6 ounces Bacon Jam or 1/2 cup Real Bacon Bits
Egg Roll Wrappers
Over medium heat, brown ground meat, onions and garlic. Drain well.Season with Creole seasoning. While still warm, mix in cheese and bacon. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature.. Preheat deep fryer to 375℉. Place 2-3 tablespoons in egg roll wrapper and roll up. Do not prepare egg roll more than 30 minutes before you fry them. Fry them until they are golden brown, remembering to turn them to ensure both sides of the egg roll cook. Drain on paper towels and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
