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. In fact I have some of my recipes in the archives that I have tweaked with the addition or adding extra amount of cheese. Click the links below to find the recipes of some of the Cheesy dishes that I have made.

Cheesy Lumpia

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.
