Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

I love Disney. I’m sure you’ll see in some of the previous blogs there are Disney influences in my Minnie Mouse converse trainers and there’s definitely an influence of American food from my various US travels. Recently I was watching one of my favourite vloggers and they were eating Cheeseburger eggs rolls at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando Florida. I’ve eaten these before and immediately started writing down and researching recipes on how to make these gorgeous snacks. I mean what could be better.. the taste of hamburger; cheese, fried food in snack size form. So here’s my final recipe and they do taste just like the ones at Disney.

 

Ingredients:

 

Samosa/Egg rolls/Spring roll papers (frozen)

500g mince meat

Handful of burger gherkins sliced into small pieces

1 tablespoon mustard (I used French)

1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup

¼ large white onion grated

Handful grated cheddar cheese

Pinch of salt and paper

Sunflower oil for frying

Optional: 1 teaspoon burger sauce

 

Method:

  1. Brown the mince and onions in frying pan until cooked
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly
  3. Put a tablespoon of the mix in an egg roll wrapper and wrap up like it’s a baby in a blanket or a burrito
  4. Wet the edge of the wraps if they won’t stick back down
  5. Fry each wrap in the sunflower oil on medium heat for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. The mince is already cooked so you don’t have to cook them too long
  6. Drain well on kitchen paper and serve with burger sauces for dipping

Minnie Mouse Converse for Disney trip

 

I visit Disney World every few years and I get super excited in the planning stages. I have a Mickey Mouse chalk board with a count down on it for the number of days and I even have a specific Disney Packing List which I’ll share in another blog.

This year I was pondering Pinterest and found some amazing crafts to make Disney or more specifically Minnie Mouse inspired converse trainers. Trainers or sneakers in the US are an absolute essential for any theme park day as you walk miles every day so you need comfortable feet. Converse that are themed seemed to be the perfect idea therefore.

I started by buying some super cheap converse from Amazon (links below) and a long piece of spotty ribbon. I also bought some cheap gems that I think were meant for card making and fabric glue which is flexible and stretchy.

When all the items arrived I coated the toe of the shoe in fabric glue and stuck on the gems shaping the dark ones into Mickey’s head. Do Mickey’s head first so you are happy with the symmetrical placement then work the clear gems around it.

Then I cut the ribbon in half and on the serrated edges I used a candle to melt the loose fibres together so it wouldn’t fray. Allow the glue to dry over night and you are done.

I tested the shoes in the Florida 90 degree heat and they lasted the whole trip so I was happy with the result.

Some materials to buy to copy this idea:
