Yes, you read that right. Philips sent us a bloody fancy Airfryer XXL and I was like, OH MY GOD I CAN FINALLY MAKE CHEESEBURGER SPRING ROLLS! It was a big day for me. (More about the Airfryer below.)
This all started when we dropped into Murray’s Brewery in Port Stephens a few days after Christmas. It was a bit picturesque – green lawns, watermelon beer, a puppy under the table, sunkissed kids running around and that’s where I met Cheeseburger Spring Rolls. It was instant love for sure.
I had tried bacon and egg spring rolls before and that was all sorts of awesome so I wasn’t super surprised at how good they were (and they were good) I was more excited because I knew that I now had what I needed to make these a daily reality in my life. JOKING – I have NO metabolism at all, ‘daily’ could never happen.
Now I’m going to have to ask you to excuse the iPhone images, I’m having way too much fun with my kids to do a proper set-up. I’ll be back to reality soon. But I did make a gif to show you how to fold them so please accept that as your consolation prize.
Cheeseburger Spring Rolls
Yield 8 Spring Rolls
- 4 good quality hamburger patties
- 8 spring roll pastry sheets
- 8 slices of cheese
- 4 gherkins
- 1 egg
- A little bit of vegetable oil
- Split each in pattie in two and roll it into a spring roll shape.
- Cook them on the stove top until they are brown on the outside but still pink in the middle.
- Place the cooked pattie, a slice of cheese and a gherkin on the spring roll pastry and fold, following the images below. Use the egg as a glue to stick the edges.
- Brush the rolls with oil.
- Cook them in the Airfryer at 200°C for 5 minutes. Or if you don't have an airfryer you can normal-fry them.
Now, about that Philips Airfryer XXL; You know when you get new shoes and you wear them every day and you’re like – what the hell did I use to wear before I got these? Yeah, I have been getting those sorts of vibes. I seriously have been using it every day. It basically cooks anything you want it to, apparently, you can even make cakes in it, I know right?!
Because we have never really deep-fried anything I wasn’t sure if we would really have a use for it but… If you can cook it in a pan, on the stovetop or in the oven – we have been bung-ing it in the Airfryer. And the best thing about that is when I go to cook something like Salmon I can put it in, set the timer and hit go, then go and bath the kids. I don’t even have to be in the same room as it!
It uses no oil and actually removes fat because of some very fancy swirling action. It’s super cool. It also comes with an app that has HEAPS of recipes and it is truly my favourite thing that I never knew I wanted. I was gifted this by Philips but I’m not being paid to say this (or to bang on about it to my family and friends constantly.) Ok, I’ll stop now.
