***I’m really sorry I seem to have fallen off the face of the earth: an old back injury has had me down and out. I’m feeling a little better and want to get back into the swing!***
As most of you know, and some of you participate as well, I try each week to be a part of Weekend Potluck. On most Sunday afternoons while Mr. Picky-eater and the dogs are napping I go over to one of the ladies’ sites (there are 5 now I think) and spend an hour or two looking at different recipes and blogs. I guess that’s the way I relax now. One Sunday, the featured recipe was White Trash Dip from the My Kitchen Apron blog. I loved the dip but as I looked around her blog, I found this unusual recipe for something called pepperoni logs……..I called them pizza egg rolls. I talked with Top Girl who found it on Pinterest and pinned it – so did I. I really wanted Top Girl and I to make them together, but she is very busy these days with Rocket so it ends up that last night I made them by myself. Now, this is always a risky proposition! This blog is not called “Domestically Impaired’s Guide to Retro Kitchen Arts” for nothin’.
Just so you know: Mr. Picky-eater will NOT under any circumstances eat something he has never eaten before or that he does not think has been prepared safely…….and yet, he married me! Any kind of Asian food is verboten – not because he dislikes it, but because he has never tried it.
Here are the ingredients needed to make the Pepperoni Logs:
• Egg Roll Wrappers
• Pepperoni Slices
• Shredded Cheese or a roll of mozzarella cheese
• Cornstarch and water to make a slurry to seal edges
Place pepperoni towards the bottom left corner like this:
Place cheese on top of pepperoni:
Put the slurry on the edges and begin folding:
Keep making your envelope:
Rooooll it on up!
I don’t have a deep fryer. You don’t need one of those, just use a pot. Make sure it comes up to 350 F. degrees:
Let it fry for while on one side, until it is brown enough.
Then flip it over, mine only took about 1 minute on each side but it might take yours longer:
Ta-Da! I’m done! I served it with homemade Ranch Dressing. I made 8 and Mr. Picky-eater ate 5! He loved them – I never said a word about them being made with egg roll wrappers…….Yep, I’m sneaky like that!
