Extremely flavorful pineapple fried rice stuffed egg rolls, the perfect party appetizer, or family meal.
Have you ever celebrated Chinese New Year before? As you may know by now, I am a pretty big holiday enthusiast, even for holidays that aren’t exactly part of my culture or heritage. Give me a reason to celebrate. Any reason will do.
Around our house, Asian-inspired flavors rate pretty high, so a few years ago we decided it would be fun to celebrate Chinese New Year. We did our research, and bought Chinese lanterns, red envelopes, and came up with a fun menu. We loved the idea of setting ourselves up for a “lucky” year, and even more, we loved the idea of eating some of our favorite foods, and having a party.
One of the foods we eat often around here is fried rice: ham fried rice, shrimp fried rice, chicken fried rice, and pineapple fried rice. We also love egg rolls, so I thought it would be so fun to combine the two for our Chinese New Year celebration. Egg rolls are so portable, and ideal for parties. And so, pineapple fried rice egg rolls.
Talk about an awesome flavor explosion. Do you or your family celebrate Chinese New Year? If you do then you really should try these amazing pineapple fried rice egg rolls. I use Dole Pineapple Chunks, Kikkoman soy sauce, and Minute rice, along with premade egg roll wrappers to make some of the best tasting egg rolls I have ever eaten! Plus did I mention they are fast and easy?
The Minute white rice means great-tasting, white, fluffy, rice in 5 minutes, stir in some veggies, Kikkoman soy sauce, and Dole pineapple chunks, an egg and give it a quick stir, then fold it into a pre-made wrapper, and you have a flavorful, family-friendly meal in minutes. And you can even get a coupon for the Kikkoman here and the Dole pineapple here.
The fried rice is amazing as is, so feel free to eat it as it is. But putting it inside an egg roll wrapper and frying or baking it is also a great way to add some fun. I love the addition of the crunch from the wrapper. And the portability can’t be beat either.
Of course, these didn’t last very long at our house. I am pretty sure my kids think I make everything into egg rolls now. And I think they are right. But I am not about to stop either. Yum.
