August's Kulinary Cooking Club - Lumpia!!!!!

As a child, I remember my parents throwing parties or having people over for dinner all the time.  One given dishes was lumpia shanghai and I would always get stuck chopping all the veggies.  BTW I hate, hate chopping carrots.  For this challenge, I made a variation of lumpia shanghai since I made fresh lumpia a couple of months ago.  This past Saturaday, I had the opportunity to donate quite a bit of food for charity, coming up in the next post, I made some lumpia shanghai.  I thought it was pretty good timing :D.  I did make traditional lumpia shanghai but for this challenge I made longoniza lumpia.  For the longoniza I used my homemade longoniza

The Filling (I used pork but I plan to make a chicken version)

Making the egg roll

I'm not the greatest at rolling

The vertict from The Husband was that it was mushy and he was quite confused (he didn't know what I used.  I personally loved it.

  1. I must admit I don't know much about Filipino Cuisine, but your blog is a true inspiration. Thank you for sharing all these delicious recipes with us

  2. Ive always kind of wondered about this: are lumpia basically egg rolls with more filipino-centered ingredients? What's the one thing that makes them different?

  3. A very different type of lumpia from the one we eat at home. They are definitely a crowd pleaser.

  4. I have always wanted to try a Lumpia! This post might convince me to finally do it!

  5. Ooooh...I can't resist these. With chili sauce, I will eat them non stop :D

  6. Love love Lumpia, they are so delicious. We always have them for potlucks at work and they dissapear very quickly.

  7. i'm loko for lumpia! my mom's are so good that people BEGGED her to make them, including me. when i moved away for school, i would take with me at least 2 kgs of frozen shanghai to last me at least 1 semester, lol.

    glad you posted!

  8. ps, your cooking club sounds cool! i wish there was a filipino cooking club in Toronto. *sigh*

  9. Thanks everybody
    @Baking Barrista - actually it is all in the filling. This version is mainly meat compared to the other egg roll versons. These types are quite small.
    @Lala - it is actually a blog base cooking club. Would you be interested in joining?

  10. I love lumpia -- used to eat it as a child during the summer Flower Festival. Made me nostalgic seeing yours. I bet it was yummy!

  11. These look really good! Are they fried or just browned? Either way, these look like something I'd love to try. :)

  12. access to a group of filipino food bloggers? absolutely!

    how can i say no to that?


  13. your lumpia looks very tasty! I would love to try it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  14. ay ako din, pwede sumali?

    ketchup and lumpia, the best.

  15. what a great idea! i love the idea of longganisa in lumpia

  16. Husbands always tend to be critical before complimentary! I think it looks fantastic.

  17. wow, joy, lumpiang shanghai and longganiza in one crunchy bite! genius! my son will absolutely love this. thanks!

  18. Wow this is the first time I've heard of longganisa lumpia but I'm intrigued. Looks yummy--will definitely try this soon.
    It's very nice of you to volunteer, what could be more fun than using your talent for helping :)

  19. WOW! Lumpia with longganisa! Oh Joy you're a genius! This is like kikiam!

  20. I second the Wow...a different take, sounds interesting version, I imagine I won't be needing sweet chili sauce as it has that sweetness already into it:)

  21. Using longaniza is a great idea. I love it!
