I fell in love with Reuben Egg Rolls while on a trip and had to make some . This past February I went on a girls trip to Destin , Florida. Why a beach trip in February? Because it is BEAUTIFUL anytime of year!! While there we ate at local Irish restaurant and I was introduced to these Reuben Egg Rolls . They were amazing! Even the picky eaters in my group liked them. I knew when I got home I needed to replicate these babies. My family adored them including my young great nephew . These would be great for any occasion that snacks are required and would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Another great dish for parties and much easier is my Pineapple Jalapeno Meatballs .
Let me start off by saying if you love the flavor of a Reuben sandwich you will adore these Reuben Egg Rolls . Even if you don’t just try these, it might make a believer out of you. The inside is creamy and has lots of corned beef and is sweetened up with dressing. The sweetness is balanced out with the subtle flavor from the sauerkraut.
Start by draining and squeezing the sauerkraut as dry as possible. Then dice the corned beef and place all of the filling in a mixing bowl.
Either mix with a large spoon or hand mixer until blended. It is so much easier to use a hand mixer !
Now time to roll, it really isn’t that hard. Lay the wrapper with one corner pointing toward you, it will look like a diamond. Place a heaping Tablespoon of filling in the center of the wrapper. With your wet finger run a little water around all of the edges. Fold the corner closest to you over the filling. Then fold the left and right side to the center. Roll it closed and make sure the egg roll is sealed. Roll all your egg rolls before beginning the frying process.
Heat the prepared skillet with about 2 inches of oil to 375 degrees. Gently drop egg rolls in the grease with the seam side down. Once they start to brown flip them over and let them brown on the other side.
When they are golden brown on both side from them from the grease and allow to drain on paper towels.
Serve with a little extra Thousand Island dressing for dipping. Enjoy!!
