This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Turkey Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

Whipped these babies up the other night in under 45 minutes. I've been all about easy and fun summer meals the past few weeks. The kids adored these, and hand held food is automatically a hit. Even though they're fried... we used ground turkey. Trying to keep it on the leaner side of things. Not sure how well that worked, ha! Fried anything is amazing, and I'll leave it at that. 

(Makes approximately 10 egg rolls )

  • 1 pound ground turkey (you can of course substitute ground beef as well)
  • 1/4 diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped pickles
  • cheese of your choice, we used swiss and provolone about 10 slices 
  • egg roll wrappers (about 10)
  • veggie oil (about 1/2 cup)
In a skillet brown the ground turkey and red onion until the turkey i
cooked all the way through. Drain any access liquid. Add in ketchup, 
mustard, worcestershire and pickles. Stir to combine. 

Set up your egg roll station. Wrappers, filling, cheese and a 
little dish of water for sealing your egg rolls.

Add about 2 tablespoons of burger filling 
plus one slice of cheese to each egg roll wrapper

Fold up the egg rolls. There should be a diagram on the
 package of egg roll wrappers that will explain how better than I ever can.

Once you have all of the egg rolls prepared. In a skillet with high sides heat up about 1/2 cup of oil over medium heat. BE CARFUL FRYING WITH OIL. When it gets up to temp place 2 egg rolls in at a time very gently and fry until golden brown, flip and fry the other side. 1-2 min each side. 

If you want something similar but don't want the grease of frying or the pain of rolling egg rolls: Try flour tortillas, then either baking or lightly toasting each side on a griddle, skillet or panini press. An example is my bacon jalapeƱo cheeseburger wrap. Those are ridiculously flavorful and easy to make. I'm actually thinking about doing a re-boot of those in the coming weeks, so be prepared! Cheers!
