The White House has an annual tradition every Easter called the Easter Egg Roll, where kids rolls eggs down a hill for fun. Well, I've decided to make literal egg rolls with many of the components of Easter, including rabbits and chocolate!
Making egg rolls is surprisingly easy. These days, you can buy premade wonton wrappers and all you gotta do is put your fillings in the center of the wrappers and wrap them up.
I couldn't find ground rabbit online(well, that's not true, I was just too lazy to search for it), so I settled for rabbit hot dogs instead, which taste like any ordinary hot dog(you know, the type made from pork and/or beef) and are better suited for egg rolls than ground rabbit, since there's no need to brown them before hand.
But why the use of seaweed salad, which isn't normally served on Easter? You see, when I was a kid, my mom would always give my sister and I gift baskets that had candy and green garland in it that looked like seaweed, hence the use of it here.
Normally people don't eat eggs on Easter, they just hard-boil them and paint them. I prefer eating hard-boiled eggs more than painting them and rendering them inedible.
The egg rolls tasted sweet from the candy and savory from the hard-boiled egg and rabbit hot dogs. Since I didn't have a pastry brush on hand, I had to the pour olive oil onto the egg rolls, but all that oil made the egg rolls turn out looking like they just came out of a deep fryer! The outside was definitely greasy and crispy, just like an egg roll should.
I may have served them with coconut aminos, but the egg rolls actually taste better without them.
My dad didn't try this recipe, as he's opposed to eating rabbits.
