I just can’t figure out why I’m such an appetizer whore. They’re just so much fun. If we’re eating out, I’m more interested in what we’ll be snacking on while waiting on our entree than the actual entree. Especially at home, though, is when it’s fun for me. I like the planning and making-it-all-pretty parts of hors d’oeuvres .
I mean, really, how much fun is hanging out with loved ones during the holidays without them? I once read that hors d’oeuvres meant “appetite spoiler”. Not in this house!
If you’re a buffalo chicken fan, you’ll absolutely love these.
Buffalo Chicken RollsAdapted from Can You Stay For Dinner 12 Egg roll wrappers
1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
1 cup coleslaw mix
1 cup bleu cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce (or more, make them as hot as you want!)
Small bowl of water
Bleu cheese dressing for dipping
Preheat oven to 400°. Combine the chicken, hot sauce and bleu cheese in a mixing bowl.
On a clean work surface, begin filling your rolls. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture on the bottom diagonal corner of the wrapper. Add a tablespoon of slaw mix and roll up.
Here’s Andie’s rolling instructions which are great:“To fold: Fold the bottom right corner over the stuffing mixture so that it covers it completely, with the tip of the corner now pointing to the center of the egg roll wrapper. Fold in the bottom left corner, followed by the right, so that you now have formed an envelope. Roll the wrap upward one time, leaving the top left corner open. Wet your index finger in the small bowl of water and press to moisten the top left corner. Now fold that down on top of the filled roll, sealing it like you would an envelope.” Coat a wire rack with non stick cooking spray and place it on top of a cookie sheet, which will give you even browning/crispness. Bake for 12-15 minutes (I found mine didn’t take but about 12), or until light brown and getting crispy.
Serve with bleu cheese dressing for dipping them in.
The combination of spicy chicken, the cool bleu cheese and crunch of the slaw is an amazing combination.
