Homemade Pizza Rolls (great for superbowl parties!)

It's that time of the year again!  Superbowl Sunday is coming up in a week and it's time to prepare party food!  My family got this recipe from a cooking magazine some years ago and we love it--The Foxes' Den made some recently for dinner as well.  It takes a bit of time to make but the value of this recipe is it freezes well and just tastes so good! :)

You will need:

4 Cups (16 oz.) shredded pizza cheese blend or mozzarella cheese 
1 lb. bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
2 packages (3 oz. each) sliced pepperoni, chopped
1 medium green pepper finely chopped
1 medium sweet red pepper chopped
1 medium onion chopped
2 jars (14 oz. each) pizza sauce
32 egg roll wrappers
vegetable oil OR shortening for frying (we use shortening as it seems to be a tad cheaper)
additional pizza sauce for dipping--warmed, optional

In a large bowl combine cheese, sausage, pepperoni, peppers and onion.  Stir in pizza sauce until combined.  Place about 1/4 cup filling in center of each egg roll wrapper.  Fold bottom corner over filling; fold sides over center filling.  Moisten remaining corner with water (not too much) and roll up tightly to seal. 

In an electric skillet heat 1 inch of oil to 325 degrees.  Fry pizza rolls 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.  (I find sometimes I need to hold the pizza roll in the oil with some tongs to keep it sealed for a few seconds).  Drain on papers towels.  Serve with additional pizza sauce if desired.  It yields 32 pizza rolls.
