Seafood Pockets/Bundles

I made this cute little bundles for Christmas. You can put any kind of fillings to it. It can be vegetarian, meat or seafood. This appetizers can be make ahead and bake them just before serving. They're a perfect combo of crunchy pastry with rich and creamy filling.

Ingredients :

1 packet of small spring roll wrappers
1 egg - beaten

Filling :

1 cups of cooked shrimp - chopped
1/2 cup of crab stick - chopped
1/2 cup of celery - chopped
1/2 cup of low fat cream cheese
1/2 cup of low fat ricotta cheese
1 tsp of garlic - chopped finely
3 spring onions - chopped finely
1 tsp of mustard
1/2 tsp of chili powder (optional)
1 tsp of curry powder
1/2 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Using spring roll wrappers
1) Combine all the filling ingredients and mix well. Set aside
2) Trim the spring roll wrappers into round shape.
3) Place a tablespoon of filling in the center of the spring roll wrapper. Brush some egg around the filling and pinch the wrapper together just above the filling to seal the bundle.
4) Arrange in a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in a pre-heat 350 degree F oven for 10-12 min or until lightly brown.

Using Phyllo dough


Note : You can use phyllo dough for this appetizer.

I tried the blue berries yesterday and it did not turn out as good as yours. Boohooo......:(
Not going to post it because it was a real failure.
I think I over mixed it.
Going to give it a try again.
