Hot Dog Egg Rolls

I recently turned on some of my family members to Nueske’s smoked wieners. Let’s just say they are sold. They actually demand them if we are going to go somewhere and grill out for the day, and as a matter of fact, they have began to crave them. Let me just say that these wieners are probably the best I have ever had. The casing is strong and the smoke flavor is awesome. I’m not kidding when I say this. I truly mean it. So as I have steamed, and grilled many packages of Nueske’s wieners over the last few months, I wanted to try something different with them.

Recipe for making Hot Dog Egg Rolls

In the past, I have made things such as the Pretzel Dog with Caramelized Onions and Pimento Cheese, a Mexican Hot Dog, Bacon Wrapped Corn Dogs, The Milwaukee Dog, and heck, even Pigs in a Blanket, but what I have not attempted is a hot dog egg roll. So this past week, while getting ready to watch some football on the television, and unwind for the day, I decided to give them a shot.

Let’s just say they might have been the best hot dog recipe that I have made to date.

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole Nueske’s wieners
  • 4 TYJ Spring Roll Pastry Wrappers
  • Cheddar Cheese slices
  • 1 whole egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp thinly sliced onion
  • 1 tbsp mustard, optional
  • 3 cups of canola oil

Start by adding the oil to a medium sized pot, and bring to a medium-high heat. Your goal is to bring the oil up to about 360 degrees, and that will take about as much time as it will take to prepare the hot dog egg rolls.

I made two versions of these hot dog egg rolls; one being a wiener with cheese, and the other being wiener with onion and mustard. Both were equally delicious.

Lay one wrapper down onto a plate.  Add the hot dog, as pictured below, then cheese slices. Do this as well for the one with the mustard and onion. Fold the wrapper over the hot dog, and pull back on it a bit to tighten it, then roll a bit more. Brush the egg onto the sheet, fold in the sides over the wiener, then continue to roll to make the egg roll.

Lay this onto another sheet of pastry wrapper. Yes, we are going to double wrap the hot dog. Repeat the rolling, folding, and egg wash.

Please make sure you have a great seal on both egg rolls. The last thing you want to happen is for the mustard or cheese to leak out into the oil and splatter like crazy. So, carefully place these into the hot oil, and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until they are a golden brown. Once cooked, remove them from the oil, and place on some paper towel to remove any oil.

Now you have a couple of options here when serving. Serve whole with a small bowl of ketchup and mustard, or slice in half.

I cannot tell you how awesome these were. Both were equally delicious. You get the crisp exterior from the egg roll wrapper, then the nice smokey flavor from the wiener. These are pretty much awesome for any occasion, and will go great for any football party. Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. I have made the hot dog eggroll back in january of this year and it was great. I pre sliced my hot dog and fried it first with the grilled onions along with other ingredients, rolled it up, then deep fried it. it is on my current menu to sell at special events.

  2. My husband does this with flour tortillas-the kids love them. Will tell him about the spring rolls-looks good! We were having regular chili dogs tonite, but now are having these after I told him about them:) We are gonna dip them in the chili-yum!
