***I’m really sorry I seem to have fallen off the face of the earth: an old back injury has had me down and out. I’m feeling a little better and want to get back into the swing!***

As most of you know, and some of you participate as well, I try each week to be a part of Weekend Potluck. On most Sunday afternoons while Mr. Picky-eater and the dogs are napping I go over to one of the ladies’ sites (there are 5 now I think) and spend an hour or two looking at different recipes and blogs. I guess that’s the way I relax now. One Sunday, the featured recipe was White Trash Dip from the My Kitchen Apron blog. I loved the dip but as I looked around her blog, I found this unusual recipe for something called pepperoni logs……..I called them pizza egg rolls. I talked with Top Girl who found it on Pinterest and pinned it – so did I. I really wanted Top Girl and I to make them together, but she is very busy these days with Rocket so it ends up that last night I made them by myself. Now, this is always a risky proposition! This blog is not called “Domestically Impaired’s Guide to Retro Kitchen Arts” for nothin’.

Just so you know: Mr. Picky-eater will NOT under any circumstances eat something he has never eaten before or that he does not think has been prepared safely…….and yet, he married me!  Any kind of Asian food is verboten – not because he dislikes it, but because he has never tried it.

Here are the ingredients needed to make the Pepperoni Logs:

Pepperoni Logs

• Egg Roll Wrappers
• Pepperoni Slices
• Shredded Cheese or a roll of mozzarella cheese
• Cornstarch and water to make a slurry to seal edges

Place pepperoni towards the bottom left corner like this:

Place cheese on top of pepperoni:

Put the slurry on the edges and begin folding:

I don’t have a deep fryer. You don’t need one of those, just use a pot. Make sure it comes up to 350 F. degrees:

Let it fry for while on one side, until it is brown enough.

Then flip it over, mine only took about 1 minute on each side but it might take yours longer:

Ta-Da! I’m done! I served it with homemade Ranch Dressing. I made 8 and Mr. Picky-eater ate 5! He loved them – I never said a word about them being made with egg roll wrappers…….Yep, I’m sneaky like that! 
