Collard Greens & Pulled Pork Egg Rolls

It's fun to take remnants of ingredients from my pantry and create a meal. You can make wontons with this same filling for a bite-size snack; bake or deep-fry depending on your preference. —Melissa Pelkey Hass, Waleska, Georgia

  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound collard greens
  • 1 cup refrigerated fully cooked barbecued shredded pork
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) egg roll wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Thai sweet chili sauce

Directions

  • Trim collard greens, discarding thick ribs and stems. Coarsely chop leaves. In a large saucepan, bring 1/2 in. of water to a boil. Add greens; cook, covered, until they begin to wilt, 8-10 minutes. Drain, squeezing out as much water as possible.
  • Preheat oven to 425°. Combine greens, pork, cream cheese, onion and seasonings until well blended. With one corner of an egg roll wrapper facing you, place 1/4 cup pork filling just below center of wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; moisten remaining wrapper edges with water. Fold side corners toward center over filling. Roll egg roll up tightly, pressing at tip to seal. Repeat until all filling is used.
  • Place egg rolls on a parchment-lined baking sheet; brush with melted butter. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Serve with sweet chili sauce.
  • Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked egg rolls on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until firm. Transfer to freezer containers; return to freezer. To use, bake egg rolls as directed.
Change them up:These can be fried, too. Heat 1-in. of oil in an electric skillet or a deep-fat fryer to 375°. Fry rolls, a few at a time, until golden brown, 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet chili sauce.
