My wife went out with her girlfriends for dinner tonight, so that left me home to experiment a little. I'm always bored when she's gone, so I never have anything else better to do with my time. @EddieK76 was telling me earlier that he was home with a cold, and snacking on some Totino's Pizza Rolls. I, too, am a fan of that fatty, evil little pocket of true Italian goodness. Ok, maybe not true Italian, but they are tasty nonetheless. He gave me an idea... Why not homemade? I was about to go with the pizza dough I had in the fridge, but ended up going with Wonton Wrappers instead. And, I was going to toss them on the Egg to cook them up, but figured it would be easier if I fried them up on the stove top. I'm not sure how the wonton wrappers would do on the grill anyways. I'm sure there's a way, but tonight I took the easy way out. BTW, I hope you feel better soon, Eddie!
I found these teenie tiny pepperonis to stuff in the rolls, along with some mozzarella, sauce and ricotta cheese.
Started with one wonton wrap, laid it out flat and paint it with a little water...then placed in the toppings...
Then painted another wonton wrap down with water and laid it on top...then used my wife's pastry crimper to seal the edges.
Next, I placed the Pizza Rolls in the freezer to firm up while I preheated the oil.
They only took a minute or so to fry up. Topped them with a little salt afterward.
They actually weren't greasy at all. As long as you have the oil preheated right, they won't absorb it too much at all.
Word of caution....If you try these out, GIVE THEM TIME TO REST!! I made that mistake tonight. :( I think my mouth and my thumb have some sort of degree of burns. Not thinking, I bit into one after only a few seconds and the cheese was like flowing lava. I burned my thumb when I had to spew out what I just bit into. lol
