Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Last night I was making Buffalo Chicken Won Ton Cups, and decided that I wanted to try something new. I admit I love Totinos Pizza Rolls, and wanted to make a homemade version. So I created this super easy recipe :-) You can use buffalo chicken or you can use shredded bbq chicken. 

Package of Won Ton Wrappers
Water for sealing
Shredded Buffalo Chicken
(I bake and shred chicken and add buffalo wing sauce)

Oil for frying

Take a won ton wrapper and around the edges put water, this will use as a sealer. Now take a a little bit of buffalo chicken in the middle. Now, take the sides and fold them over, and then fold the other sides over so it seals, and makes a roll of sorts. Add more water for sealing if need be. Now fill a pan with oil, and heat till hot. Next put in the rolls, and let them get golden on each side. Don't walk away from it because it will get over done.  Now take out and put on a paper towel. 

We dipped these in ranch but you can use whatever dipping sauce you like.

BBQ Whiskey Steak Pizza

 I was inspired a while back by Vegas.com to create a pizza inspired by one of the many Las Vegas Hotels. I agreed, because I love melty cheese and pizza.Today I have created a unique pizza, that is inspired by the MGM Grand Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas.  Today I bring you my Whiskey Steak Pizza topped with green onion and fried onion strings.  This pizza has a whiskey BBQ and caramelized onion sauce, then its loaded down with steak, mozzarella and provolone cheese. Then I took it a step further and topped it with onion strings and fresh green onion. I hope you enjoy it. 

1 C Warm Water(NOT HOT)
2 1/4 Tsp Yeast
2 Tsp Olive Oil
2 1/2 C Flour
2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt

In a bowl combine your warm water and yeast. Let it sit for 5 minutes till the yeast is foamy. Then add your olive oil, flour, garlic powder and salt. Mix till the dough is combined. Let it rise for an hour. While its rising you can work for the toppings:

Whiskey Caramelized Onion BBQ Sauce made easy:
1 Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 C your favorite whiskey
3 Sliced onions into rings(thin)
3 T Olive Oil
1 T Sugar
Sprinkle of Salt and Pepper.

Heat up your olive oil, sugar and seasonings. Toss in your sliced thin onions. Cook them down till they start turning a caramel color. Add your BBQ sauce, and whiskey. Cook on low for about 45 minutes. Set aside. 

2 Cups of Mozzarella and Provolone Mixed

I bought steak strips and seared them in as skillet with a tablespoon of butter. So as to get a good sear on it. Then I put it in the oven for 10 minutes. I brush it with BBQ sauce and let it rest. Now I grab my dough that has been rising for an hour and spread it on a pizza pan. Now take your BBQ sauce mixture and spread it over the top of the dough. Now take and slice your steak into small pieces and put on top of your sauce. Now top it with the cheese. Put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

3 Onions sliced thinly
1 C Milk
1 C Flour
3 T Garlic Sea Salt

Put onions in the milk, then in the flour. Next heat up oil and deep fry them till they are golden. 

When your pizza is done, top it with the fried onion strings and fresh green onion. 

Eat and Enjoy!!
