WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.
This week, Brian and Lisa prepare another award-winning N.C. pork recipe. Domino Ireland won first place for this bacon roll-up recipe in the House-Autry Mills cooking contest at the 2011 N.C. State Fair. To make this tasty appetizer, start by combining cream cheese, shredded chicken, bacon and spices together. Then, spoon the cream cheese mixture into 6-inch warmed tortilla shells. Roll each shell and freeze for at least an hour. Once the wraps have set, dip one side in a buttermilk and egg mixture and coat that side with House-Autry Mills Hot Breader. Next, dip the battered side into bacon crumbles and deep fry until golden brown.
If you’re having a Super Bowl party next weekend, Lisa says you can prepare and freeze these roll ups ahead of time. Once your guest arrive, you can deep fry them as needed.
