Ingredients
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 12 pickles, sliced in half
  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 tsp. Chopped chives, for garnish
  • Ranch dressing, for dipping
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese with cheddar, bacon, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. After you’ve halved your pickles, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds on both sides. Fill pickle with cream cheese mixture and join halves.
  3. Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface in a diamond shape and add stuffed pickle. Fold up bottom half and tightly fold in sides. Gently roll, then seal with a couple of drops of water. Repeat with remaining pickles.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining oil (it should reach 1" up the side of the pan) until it starts to bubble. Add egg rolls and fry until golden, 1 minute per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool slightly.
  5. Garnish with chives and serve with Ranch dressing for dipping.

Faux Cauliflower Fried Rice ActiFry recipe
Tasty and low calorie great substitute for a low Carbohydrate diet
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 1 Large head of Cauliflower
  • 1 actifry spoon of sesame oil
  • 1 actifry spoon of peanut oil
  • 2 actifry spoons of low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 can of sliced water chestnuts
  • 1 can of Chinese mushrooms
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Chopped Scallions optional to taste
Directions
  1. Grate one head of cauliflower using the large side of the grater. I use the largest cauliflower I can find, otherwise use two small heads. Roughly chop water chestnuts into smaller bite sized pieces Pour grated cauliflower, water chestnuts, Chinese mushrooms, minced garlic, sesame oil, peanut oil, and soy sauce in the actifry. Set Timer for 30 minutes. About 15 minutes into cooking time, pour frozen green beans in the actifry. Check for doneness after 25 minutes. Depending on the size of the cauliflower you use, it is sometimes done before 30 minutes. Pour in large serving dish and sprinkle with chopped scallions.
Notes
You can also add scrambled eggs if you desire.

Although this was made in an actifry machine it would be equally as good by stir frying.
