Cheesy Embutido Rolls

How do you feel about this story?


With a crisp skin and the mouthwatering delight of embutido, it is a unity of two delightful dishes that are equally well-loved by Filipinos. It is a delicious combination that will be a surprising break from the familiar flavor of Lumpiang Shanghai.

It can be said to be Lumpiang Shanghai, but with a cheesier inside. Filled with the juicy deliciousness of ground pork and the subtle crunch of finely chopped vegetables, it is a snack that can be a similar alternative to the local favorite.

3. In a bowl, add water and flour to make the paste to seal the lumpia. Mix until fully combined.

4. Scoop an ample amount of filling and place it on the lumpia wrapper. Roll it, making sure to put the water and flour adhesive on the edge. Continue to make rolls until the mixture and lumpia wrappers are finished.
