Avocado Egg Rolls
It was game night at our house and we needed a little something, something to enjoy while playing all night long. We love appetizers and making a few things that will last the night away. My boys love avocados and I wanted to make something that would appeal to them and these were on my mind instantly.
We love the Cheesecake Factory and enjoy its food. We always like to add an appetizer at the beginning of our meal and these were on the list to try when we first started dining there. Once we tasted the Avocado Egg Rolls we have been hooked and had a hard time ordering anything else when we are there.
I knew that they had to be made at home so we could enjoy them even more. I love dropping a plate at the table and everyone instantly has a hand in the food. This was one of those moments when everyone was hurrying to get as many on their plate as they could.
These are great dipped in ranch, cilantro ranch dressing or just eating them the way they are. Watch out, they are addicting and won’t last long! It is a fun appetizer that has a little crunch, soft, salty, and flavorful that makes every bite more and more delicious!
