Macaroni & Cheese Egg Rolls With Ham or Bacon

If you think egg rolls are only to be found on Chinese take-out menus, or in the Asian section of the frozen food aisle, it’s time to think again.

If you’re an egg roll purist who firmly believes this American-iced version of the traditional spring roll should only be hiding a blend of pork, cabbage, maybe a few other veggies, and a bevy of seasoning that’s cool, we have the perfect easy egg roll recipe for you.

But if you can close your eyes and picture that perfectly fried, crispy egg roll shell breaking open as you bite into it, revealing a filling of creamy Mac & Cheese, studded with ham or bacon then you’re on the same level as we are with this recipe.

These just call to the kid in me, the fun foodie, and the carb enthusiast within.

Why yes, I’d like some carbs with my carbs. Because, all the carbs.

Serve them with a side of your favorite barbecue sauce for dipping.
