Brie, Green Chili and Bacon Spring Rolls

Obsessed with Spring Rolls

I don’t know about you but I sometimes go through food phases where I get an idea in my head and become obsessed with finding the perfect recipe for it. I’ve gone through biscuit phases, salsa phases, brownie phases, Mac n’ cheese phases, and the list goes on.
One of my favorite phases, however, was my spring roll phase where I discovered that ANYTHING could go into those little frozen wrappers that I buy at the store. I’ve made Spanakopita spring rolls, chicken bacon ranch spring rolls, Vietnamese prawn and pork spring rolls, loaded potato spring rolls, you name it.
   I had to admit it though that my all-time FAVORITE ingredient mix was always bacon, Brie and green chili. The saltiness of the bacon pairs well with the creamy Brie and the tang of green chilies finishes it off perfectly.  These spring rolls are great as an easy appetizer/starter when entertaining or make them ahead of time and pop them in the freezer for those times when you want to indulge in a tasty snack.

Carefully peel the spring roll wrappers from one another and place them on a dry and even surface. Lightly sprinkle the wrappers with water using the tips of your fingertips. In the bottom corner of the wrapper, place bacon diagonally, followed by a slice of brie atop and lastly a teaspoon of chopped green chiles on top.

Notes

The best way to cook these spring rolls is in a non stick frying pan with on low to medium heat with a light drizzle of oil or you can bake in oven on 200 C/400 F until toasted.  Don’t bake too long as the cheese has a tendency to leak out, so be watchful!
