Ingredients

  • 4 soy “frankfurters”
  • 8 egg roll wrappers (6 inches square)
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut
  • 4 Tbs. relish
  • American-style mustard to taste
  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable oil

Preparation

  1. Cook soy “frankfurters,” or “franks,” according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, separate 2 egg roll wrappers from package, and place flat on work surface. Arrange 1/8 cup sauerkraut and 1 tablespoon relish on upper one-third of wrapper. Using tongs, remove one “frank” from saucepan, and place on wrapper below sauerkraut. Place mustard on “frank,” spread 1 tablespoon relish on other side, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese on “frank” and wrap, rolling toward you, until filling is covered. Moisten long edge with water to seal. Repeat until used up.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry “frank” packets until puffy and golden on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Using tongs, remove from heat, and place on several layers of paper towels to blot excess oil. Serve with mustard in zig-zag line down center of egg roll wrapper.
