Cheesy Lumpiang Shanghai
Cheesy Lumpiang Shanghai. The use of cheese in Pinoy cooking has become common. Cheese is being added to some Pinoy dishes that our grandparents would not imagine during their time.

Cheesy Lumpia


Lumpiang Shanghai


Making a Cheesy Lumpiang Shanghai is not much different from your ordinary Lumpiang Shanghai recipe if you already have one. All you have to do is add generous amount of cheese, I just used cheddar cheese, I am not too sure it quick melt cheese will work it may just melt and ooze out from the wrapper and burn during frying. Roll the Cheesy Lumpiang Shanghai in a manner that the fillings are sealed, use large lumpia wrapper this will effectively seal the ends of the rolls.

For those who love cheese here is the recipe of my version of a Cheesy Lumpiang Shanghai.
