Gare-O's Pizza Rolls (Great for OAMC!)

When my parents come in town, my mom and I literally sit over breakfast and try to decide what we are going to make for dinner. It usually takes us until sometime around after lunch to come to a decision.
We had a hard time the last time they were in town. Italian? Mexican? American? Chicken? Beef?

Then dad said he'd make his pizza rolls and we were sold. Apparently, they serve a similar appetizer at a restaurant near their house called Buffalo Brothers. Dad tried it one night at home and they were a hit. I had to try them. And MAN am I glad I did.

Crispy shell, gooey cheese and greasy pepperoni blanketed in marinara sauce? Yes please. And thank you.

It is a great idea to make extras of these, like the whole package of eggrolls and freeze them after you fry them. They are good for lunches, quick dinners and appetizers for company!



-Ingredients-

1/2 package eggroll wrappers
1 package pepperoni
3 c mozzarella cheese
italian seasoning
marinara sauce, for dipping
oil, for frying

-Directions-

1. Preheat your oil to 350*.
2. Meanwhile, peel apart your eggroll wrappers. On each wrapper place 8 pepperonies in the center in a diamond shape. Top with about 1/4 c cheese. Sprinkle with italian seasoning. Use a pastry brush and brush all four sides with water. Fold in both sides of the wrapper, tuck the bottom and then roll the roll tightly. Seal with more water if needed. Repeat with remaining wrappers.

3. Fry rolls a few at a time until golden brown.
4. Serve with pizza sauce.
5. If you want to freeze extras, you can reheat them by putting them on a baking sheet in a 400* oven for 10-15 minutes. Great for OAMC!
I took a moment from pigging out to get a picture of the inside. YUM.
