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.
