Well, it happened. It’s only June and the family is tired of chicken and pasta. I have four or five (more like two to three) go-to recipes at 5 pm. And, with longer days and warmer nights, I pulled out this cheeseburger eggrolls recipe. This eggroll based recipe is perfect for after-work snacks or a late night mini meal for teenagers!
My boys (all of them) will eat anything with the word cheese and burger in the description.
The hardest part of these cheeseburger eggrolls was finding the wonton wrappers at the grocery store. Our Kroger keeps them in the produce section by the fancy root vegetables.
The filling is the best part of this recipe because of its flexibility. I used a ground turkey as the protein because it was in my freezer. But, the options are endless. It’s vegan-friendly with black beans and tofu! Or load it with ground beef for the carb and meat eaters in the family.
I also toss in the random 1/2 cut onion and peppers that look a little past their perkiness.
The salsa and shredded cheese work to disguise the tofu crumbles for picky eaters.
Shh… that’s our little foodie secret.
