Cheeseburger Egg Rolls #SundaySupper

I have this thing … a skill … if you can call it that … where I know things about TV shows I don’t watch and have never seen.

I watch boatloads of TV and read lots of magazines and consider myself well informed of pop culture.  I also watch Jeopardy! every night because I’m secretly eighty in my soul and it keeps my brain going.  I can rattle off answers to a lot of categories and questions.  Answers that I cannot explain the presence of, not even a little.

Like when I know the basics of Breaking Bad or The Sopranos, Six Feet Under and Law and Order.  I’m not saying I can give you a synopsis of each episode, but when it comes to common facts like those that tend to be in Jeopardy questions, the answers fall out of me as though I am at least a casual viewer.

Mom has a similar skill.  She knows what is going to happen in pretty much every single movie or TV show we watch.  I have been watching season 4 of Orange is the New Black without her.  She’s not that into it, but she sometimes pops in an out when it’s on and knows the general premise and main characters.

The other night she provided two spoilers about what was going to happen.  One happened immediately and though the other hasn’t yet, I have no doubt she’d right.  It’s funny that I’m the writer in the family but unless the twist is super obvious, typically I’m clueless.  Maybe Mom’s so good because she reads so much of my writing.

The other thing I know about are restaurants and restaurant dishes I haven’t tried.  For this Sunday Supper of Cowboy Cooking, I wanted to make something creative yet comforting.  I had a bit of recipe block until I remembered the Cheeseburger Egg Rolls from The Peterboro in Detroit I have heard so much about.

I can’t say how much alike my dish and the restaurant dish are, but I can say that these are super tasty and would be really fun for an appetizer at a party.  The center is all of our favorite cheeseburger ingredients: ground beef (duh!), onion, ketchup, mustard, and cheese, plus and egg to keep things together.

I made little logs and baked them off.  They were delicious right out of the oven, but are much prettier all wrapped up in their egg roll wrappers and baked again.  That’s right, these are baked, not fried.  Though the bottom doesn’t crisp as much as the top, these are still a huge winner and Dad in particular liked the contrast in textures.

I’m baking a batch of these and testing my skills while watching Jeopardy.

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: 16 Egg Rolls


1 1/3 pounds Certified Angus Beef® brand ground beef
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 large eggs, divided
1 Vidalia onion, diced
16 egg roll wrappers
8 ounces cheddar cheese, sliced
Ketchup and mustard for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, ketchup, mustard, onion, and one egg. Mix until just combined. Form into 16 small logs, roughly the same size. I used 1 egg roll wrapper to get a general idea of what size they should be.
  3. Place on prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes, until just cooked through. Allow to cool on the pan and leave the oven on.
  4. When beef is mostly cool, beat the remaining egg in a small bowl and begin assembling. Take one egg roll wrapper, top it with one piece of the beef and some cheese. Use your finger to brush the edges of the wrapper with the beaten egg. Roll up, tucking the sides in as you go. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and continue until they are all wrapped.
  5. Bake an additional approximately 20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer, individually wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

Summer Weekend #FashionFriday

It’s rare that I take almost a whole weekend just for fun, but that’s what I did, even if I did sneak in a fair amount of working on the blog.  #workhardplayhard The excitement kicked off with the Forgotten Harvest Comedy Night featuring Seth Meyers.  I must admit, I don’t watch Late Night a lot, […]

Chapman House

It seems we are starting a tradition with some of our friends to meet on Memorial Day weekend.  And it’s a good one.  This year we headed to Rochester for dinner al fresco at Chapman House.  We don’t venture to Rochester too often because it is rather far from our house, but with the Hello […]

Chinese Chicken Salad #SundaySupper

Dad is my substitute teacher.  Not literally, obviously, he’s not a teacher.  We live in the Detroit area so he naturally worked for one of the Big Three and now he makes lights, which is pretty cool.  But he fills in for Mom when she’s unavailable. This is mostly due to illness or injury.  Sometimes, […]

Blonde Ambition #FashionFriday

It’s always nice to have a salon day, and it was particularly needed this week.  My hair had been looking a bit too ombre for my taste lately, so I told my amazing stylist Emilio at Alex Emilio Salon that I wanted the dark top to be more in line with the bright bottom of […]

Cheery Cherries #FashionFriday

Cherries are probably my favorite fruit.  Not only do I love them, but I also have so many great memories surrounding them. Going to the produce store on the weekends to pick cherries out of a giant box and put in a plastic produce bag.  Thankfully they don’t sell them like that anymore.  Sitting at […]
