Soul Food Saturday

I have heard that an egg roll wrapper is much like a piece of bread. You can fill it with many different things depending on your mood. And what could be better than finger food for a weeknight on the run? This one combines the idea of a sandwich and an egg roll, in one. Simple easy and you can make a big pile of them, quick!

Ham and Pepper Jack Egg Rolls
12 egg roll wrappers
12 pepper jack string cheese
24 slices of deli ham sliced in half
Oil for frying
Water to seal edges of wrappers

First, place ham on the wrapper, with the corners on either side of the ham. Then place cheese on top. Moisten around entire edge with water to seal, with either your finger, or a brush. Start fold by folding corners over the ham and cheese. Then pull bottom corner over and keep rolling until it’s tightly wrapped. Repeat with the rest of wrappers.
**Note: Be sure that the edges are sealed well, so the cheese does not ooze out during frying and cause the oil to splatter**
In a skillet, heat oil to 350 degrees F.  Fry a few at a time, for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot or room temperature.
