Ms. Cheerful, with her post Isabelle’s Rainbow Cake and Cupcakes… on her blog: Mommy's Life Around...

Doesn't that look just adorable? Too good to eat, too! I am terrible when it comes to baking (hence, less baked goodies on my food posts, lol. hopefully, that will be remedied soon) and that's why I am so amazed when I see how creative one can get while baking. Ms. Cheerful's blog is a mixed blog where she posts about her personal experiences; mostly about her life as a mom to two wonderful kids. Click on the shot to get to know more about her!

My post for this week is a snack which I prepared one time when I needed to "dispose" the wanton wrappers inside the refrigerator... and I'd like to call them Beef Pockets. (I like how that sounds, lol)


Ingredients:
ground beef
sweet potato leaves (chopped)
molo wrappers
malunggay/moringa powder (optional)
salt, pepper, soy sauce, McCormick's Italian Seasoning
oil for frying

Procedure:
Place ground meat on hot pan, then add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and soy sauce. Add a bit of water, then the chopped sweet potato leaves. Mix everything until the beef turns brown, water has evaporated and the leaves have wilted. Add the moringa powder (optional). Set aside and let cool.
Prepare the molo wrappers (just separate them from each other), then put a bit of the beef mixture on top. Wrap the mixture and seal using water.
Deep fry. Drain the oil.
Serve with your fave dip. In our case, I tried three: cheese, ketchup, and sweet-chili sauce. The cheese won. lol.

I know, the molo wrappers are supposed to be cooked with liquid, but I decided to try and fry them anyway. The only difference when you fry them is that they kind of swell up while frying but that didn't really bother me. It promptly "went down" after I took it out of the hot oil. The wrapper came out kind of chewy and crispy at the same time, though. The kids and I had fun munching them. :D

Reminder: Please don't forget to link back (a simple text would be great, or you may use the buttons provided here). Also, please try to visit the other party-goers and leave some commentluv to let them know that you dropped by. Many thanks! :)
