The Roll Shebang...

EXCELLENT idea, CPK. An egg roll appetizer inspired by the club sandwich. We hope you don't mind, though -- we got busy in the kitchen and slimmed down the dish. And it's delish...

Ingredients:
1 cup chopped bagged broccoli cole slaw
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
4 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast
1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
3 large square egg roll wrappers (stocked with the refrigerated Asian items in the supermarket)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. seeded and finely chopped tomato
2 oz. avocado cut into 6 slices (about 1/2 avocado)
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tsp. ranch dressing/dip seasoning mix
1 tsp. Mexican-style hot sauce
1/2 tsp. chopped fresh dill or 1/8 tsp. dried dill

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place broccoli slaw in a medium-large microwave-safe bowl with 1 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Drain excess water, and pat dry. Add cheese wedges, and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Add chicken, bacon, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute 1/3rd of the chicken mixture (about 1/2 cup) in a row a little below the center of the wrapper. Top mixture with 2 tbsp. tomato, followed by 2 avocado slices.

Moisten all four edges of the wrapper by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the sides about 1 inch toward the middle, to keep the mixture from falling out. Roll up wrapper around the mixture and continue to the top. Seal with a dab of water.

Place egg roll on the baking sheet, seam side down, and repeat with remaining wrappers and mixture.

Spritz egg rolls with nonstick spray. Bake until golden brown, 25 - 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make the sauces, mix sour cream with ranch seasoning in a medium bowl. Transfer half of the mixture to another bowl.

Stir hot sauce into the mixture in one bowl, and stir dill into the mixture in the other bowl.

Cut each egg roll in half, leaving you with 6 pieces. Serve with sauces for dipping!

Roll-y Poly!

Believe it or not, before we heard about this new appetizer, the idea of putting bacon, avocado, and cheese inside a crispy egg roll had never occurred to us. We were instantly intrigued... and hungry! But if you ask us, frying something that's already stuffed with fatty items isn't the best idea. Add not one but TWO creamy dipping sauces, and things really get out of control. Regardless, after considering all of this, we were still intrigued... and still hungry. So we put on our makeover caps (which are olive green, by the way), and got to work on our own recipe. A little avocado goes a long way, and we balanced things out with extra veggie goodness. Add some crumbled bacon, our favorite no-guilt cheese, the HG egg roll treatment (baking, not frying), and a couple of lightened-up dips, and this app is ready to make your day! And if you DO find yourself face-to-face with these rolls at CPK, give 'em the cold shoulder...
