Recently, I entered a recipe challenge with JSL Foods using their Twin Dragon Wrapper products. I was tasked to create a recipe for a Game Day Appetizer. Growing up, sausage and peppers were a staple at any Steelers tailgate party. Honestly, it is still one of my favorite meals. Immediately, I thought this would make for the most perfect egg roll. Honestly, these Sausage and Peppers Egg Rolls were outstanding. This recipe will yield a dozen egg rolls. Allow for at least two egg rolls per person.
Be sure to follow JSL Foods on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can purchase Twin Dragon Wrappers at Walmart, Albertsons, Shaw’s, Von’s, Stater Bros, Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway, Associated Stores, Giant Stores, Shop N Shop, Winco and Price Chopper! If they are not in your local store, ask them to carry Twin Dragon Wrapper products.
Of course, I created a short video making these beauties on TikTok. Click here to view. If you are not yet a member of this social media platform, use my code 5SSIS800K0H06 to create an account.
HOW TO PREPARE SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS EGG ROLLS
SAUSAGE AND PEPPER MIXTURE
Remove the hot sausage from the casings. If you are averse to heat, replace the hot sausage with mild, or sweet. Also, in my opinion, sausage links have more flavor than bulk. However, bulk sausage can be used as a substitute. Place sausage in pan and break apart. Once the sausage is almost fully cooked, place in a chopper. Pulse to grind.
Add the sausage back to the pan along with the diced peppers, onions and kosher salt. For added heat, sprinkle in a few crushed red pepper flakes. Cook for a few minutes, or just until the vegetables are tender. Remove sausage mixture from pan. Drain any excess grease.
HOW TO FILL AND ROLL THE SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS EGG ROLLS
Create an egg wash in a small bowl with the egg and water. Lay one Twin Dragon Egg Roll Wrapper onto a flat surface with a corner closest to you. Fill that end with a few generous spoonfuls of the sausage mixture. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Fold over. Next, fold in the sides. Roll tightly leaving a little space at the end. Brush the inside edge with the egg wash. Continue to roll and seal. Repeat with the remaining egg roll wrappers.
TO FINISH AND SERVE THE SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS EGG ROLLS
While you are rolling the egg rolls, heat enough oil in a pot or pan, to cover the egg rolls. Place the egg rolls into the hot oil. Brown on all sides. This will require to flip and hold with tongs to ensure all the edges are browned. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil.
Pile the Sausage and Peppers Egg Rolls onto a platter. Garnish with fresh basil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with a side of your favorite marinara sauce. ENJOY!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
