These Skinny Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls have all of the flavors that you love in a big, juicy burger – with none of the guilt! They’re easy to prep in advance, and they are perfect for both a healthy weeknight dinner and for a tasty party appetizer at your next March Madness get-together.
Who doesn’t love a bacon cheeseburger, right? I suppose I’m channeling warmer weather (and summer cook-outs) since it’s still chilly here in Virginia. Until we can really get out there and fire up the grill on a regular basis, we will be enjoying these crispy, cheesy, juicy bites – from the comfort of the indoors. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that they are light and lean, making them a very tasty way to get ready for bathing suit season!
My kids love finger foods that they can dip into just about anything. They also happen to love hamburgers. Needless to say, this dinner was a big hit! Even my husband, who is definitely a Grill Master/Burger Connoisseur, cleaned his plate and finished the left-overs for lunch the following day. It doesn’t matter that these baked egg rolls are healthy – they still taste delicious!
I also appreciate that the egg rolls are yet another meal (or party snack) that I can make in advance. In fact, I cooked the ground beef over the weekend and kept it in the refrigerator until I was ready to use it. Then, on the day that I wanted to serve these for dinner, I just assembled them in the morning while my two older boys were at preschool. I sprayed the tops with cooking spray and covered the baking sheet with plastic wrap before sticking it in the refrigerator. Then, when suppertime rolled around, the only thing left to do was pop them in the oven for about 10 minutes. That’s my kind of meal, and it’s one that my family just happens to adore!
