Corned Beef & Cabbage Egg Rolls with Russian Dressing from Lemony Thyme

Corned Beef & Cabbage Egg Rolls {with Russian Dressing}.

Recipe inspiration you ask?  Day after St. Patrick’s Day leftovers meets an open package of wonton wrappers on the second shelf of the refrigerator…and the plotting begins.  By the time I woke up this morning they had formed a bond and a plan.  When I opened the fridge door the Ziploc bag of wonton wrappers had neatly made it’s way to the top of the container of leftover boiled dinner.  Clearly it was a case of love at first sight.

Who was I to doubt their intentions?

I simply julienned the leftover cooked carrots, cabbage and corned beef, then added some thinly sliced scallion.  Since I was using smaller wonton wrappers, instead of full sized egg roll wrappers, it didn’t take much to fill them up.

I turned the wrapper at an angle so I could fold in the points from each side, before bring up the bottom point and rolling.  A little water on the top edges sealed the rolls.

Once they were rolled I cooked the egg rolls in batches in about a 1/2-inch of canola oil, seam side down, turning once so they were golden brown on each side.  It seems leftover corned beef dinner and wonton wrappers know a thing or two about Eating Out of the Fridge/Pantry and recipe creativity.  These egg rolls were absolutely delicious.

Our favorite use for leftover corned beef is the beloved Classic Reuben Sandwich, which we serve with B’s Homemade Russian Dressing.  That dressing seemed like a natural pairing for our Corned Beef & Cabbage Egg Rolls.  It was.
