1/4tsp Pepper
1/2 small can Tomato Paste (Basil Oregano Kind)
1/4tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Turkey Pepperonis
Egg Rolls (Or taco shells, cabbage leaves, hoagies, etc.)

I heated up sauce ingredients, then brought down to a simmer for a few minutes. Then, covered and set aside. Blend red pepper and onion. Mix above meat mixture. Form little logs to fit egg rolls. Roll into egg rolls with a LITTLE sprinkle of moz. cheese AND 3 pepperoni slices (Dab of water helps egg roll edges stick!). Brown each side in skillet with butter flavor cooking spray. LIGHTLY spray baking pan with cooking spray. Spread a little sauce mixture on bottom, top with egg rolls, top with more sauce, top with good amount of moz. cheese. Bake 375 for 40minutes. Last 10minutes top with Parm. Cheese (Store shelf kind) finish baking 10minutes.

*NOTES: You can try Cabbage Leaves for wraps vs. Egg Rolls. I have yet to try, but you can try Ground Turkey Meat instead of Beef. Or Any Italian Sausage instead of Turkey Italian Sausage. Regular Pepperoni instead of Turkey. Depends on how healthy you want these to be.
Original way to cook this is to form meat into patties, top with pepperonis, cook in sauce. (You can choose to brown 1st, I don’t) Top with cheese, bake til browned and top onto Texas Garlic Bread/Toast/Buns/Hoagies.  (Sometimes, I make patties stuffed with pepperoni.)
***We did not use all this meat. Extra was refrigerated for hamburgers the next night.

Sproutin Ground Cow Rolls (Beef & Bean Sprout Egg Rolls – Lumpias)

eggroll2aasm
Filling:
sproutincowrollfilling1bsm

1.5lbs Ground Beef (I also do part Pork and Part Beef!!!)
1 can Bean Sprouts, drained*
1 Carrot, grated
1 small Onion, sliced thin
Up to 1/4c Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Egg
A few good splashes of Soy Sauce, or more to taste
About 1/2tsp Brown Sugar (Opt.)
1/8tsp Ginger Powder
Shake of Garlic Powder
Shake of Course Black Pepper
Sprinkle of Onion Powder
Egg Roll Wraps

Brown Meat, drain fat. (I sometimes saute in sesame seed oil.)Add Brown Sugar, small pinch of Ginger, good few dashes Garlic and Onion Powder, a good amount of Pepper. Add in Vegetables. Add in Cheese and Egg. Add in Soy Sauce. Cook til nicely blended and Egg is cooked. Roll up in Egg Roll.
(Now these are usually deep fried, try air fryer! But, the healthier version we do:) Heat skillet, spray with Non Stick Butter Flavored cooking spray. Brown all sides. When done, I always sprinkle lightly with Garlic Powder (Some do Garlic Salt). Serve with Sweet and Sour mixed with Mild Cheddar Cheese (NOT Melted). Or… Sour Cream with Salsa.
***FREEZABLE! Single layer a plate with rolls (I spray plate with non stick spray), freeze, once frozen add to freezer bags.
* (Sprouts And/Or coleslaw mix can be used- About 1.5cups if using coleslaw mix. Less if using both sprouts and coleslaw mix). Also, you can choose to deep fry these. But, our preference is skillet sprayed with Butter Flavor Cooking Spray!
