Easy lumpia recipe! We're putting a twist on a traditional Filipino dish.

Recipe: Bacon Cheeseburger Lumpia


1LB 80/20 ground beef
1 cup maple cured bacon cut into cubes
2 cups of finely grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup of diced onions
5 minced garlic cloves
1 egg
2 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp black pepper
Orientex square lumpia wrapper


Heat oil in skillet and saut garlic and onions until tender. Add meat and bacon, saut until browned. Add cheese. Remove from heat. Salt to taste.

To assemble lumpia: Carefully separate wrappers. To prevent them from drying out, cover unused wrappers with moist paper towel. Lay one wrapper on clean surface. Place about 2-3 tablespoons of the filling near the edge closest to you. Roll edge towards the middle. Fold in both sides and continue rolling. Moisten opposite edge with water or egg to seal. Repeat with other wrappers. Lumpia can be frozen until ready to use.

Deep fry at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.
