Genovese Sauce and Cheese Spring Rolls

Genovese Sauce and Cheese Spring Rolls

I made some good snacks to have with white wine using leftover Genovese sauce and spring roll wrappers. If you keep them in your freezer you can eat anytime you like!

Ingredients: makes 8

Genovese sauce Recipe ID: 589854
1 and 1/2 tablespoons
Sliced cheese (either melting or non-melting type)
1 or more
Spring roll wrappers
2
Flour dissolved in water (1 teaspoon of flour dissolved in 2 teaspoons of water)
Olive oil
as needed

Steps

1. Cut the spring roll wrappers into 4.
2. Cut the sliced cheese into 8 (use more if you like!).
3. Spread the spring roll wrappers and place on each a portion of cheese. Put a teaspoon of Genovese sauce on top of each.
4. Brush the dissolved flour on both sides of the wrapper pieces (left and right sides in the photo) and fold the bottom up.
5. This photo shows Step 4. Brush the dissolved flour on the top side and fold the bottom onto the top.
6. This photo shows Step 5. Press gently both sides and the seam from Step 5 to stick.
7. Repeat this to make 8 spring rolls. If you want to freeze them, arrange them without overlapping in a container and freeze. After they are frozen, put them into a resealable bag! You can cook them on a frying pan without thawing them!
8. Heat a frying pan over a low-medium heat. Grease the pan with olive oil and arrange Step 7. Pan-fry until golden brown. After frying, place them on kitchen paper on a plate to drain the excess oil. Transfer to a serving dish and they're done!
