Philly Cheesesteak Eggs Rolls

An American favorite meets Asian cuisine with this Philly cheesesteak egg roll recipe! Whereas most egg rolls are fried and drenched in oil, these are baked to crispy perfection.

Use these steps to really impress your taste buds and guests:

1. Preheat over to 425°F and line a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Follow instructions 1 through 4 of the original recipe then allow the mixture to slightly cool.

3. Lay out an egg roll wrapper then spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the center. Fold in side corners and roll, sealing edges with water or an egg wash. Repeat the process for 12 egg rolls.

4. Add egg rolls to the baking sheet and coat the tops of the rolls with cooking spray. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until crispy and browned.

Serve as an appetizer or pair with seasonal vegetables for a balanced meal.

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

Casseroles are a great dinner option for their simplicity and versatility. They can pack major flavor in each bite, and a Philly cheesesteak casserole is no exception!

Here is how to do it using the ingredients outlined in the original recipe and 4 ounces of light cream cheese:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare an 8x11 or 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray.

2. Follow steps 1 through 4 from the original recipe. Also, drain any excess fat and liquid to ensure the integrity of the casserole as it bakes.

3. Add the Worcestershire sauce and cream cheese to the skillet. Heat until the cream cheese has melted.
