OK, I may not be the world’s greatest chef … or even my apartment’s greatest chef, for that matter … but I do love to eat! Specifically, I love to eat Disney-based treats. That is why I decided to take Chef Gusteau’s infamous advice, “anyone can cook,” and emulate Disney’s Cheeseburger Spring Roll recipe.

After all, it’s my favorite Disney snack. 

What is the Cheeseburger Spring Roll, you ask? Great question! These crispy, golden, fried wraps of ground beef, cheese, and onions are every savory-snack enthusiast’s dream. Currently, they are served in sets of two for $9.50 at a cart located near the entrance to Adventureland in Magic Kingdom

But, let’s face it: Not everyone can get to Magic Kingdom at a moment’s notice. But everyone* does have a craving for salty, scrumptious, two-bite pockets of cheeseburger goodness. 

*Or, like … at least me … 

I primarily followed this recipe but made a few customizations. Specifically, I tended to add a little more of everything because I was making enough for four people.

HOW TO MAKE DISNEY’S CHEESEBURGER SPRING ROLLS

1. Place the ground beef and diced onion in a skillet over medium heat and cook for about 10 minutes (or until the meat is browned), breaking up the beef into crumbles as it cooks. Drain the meat and onions, then return to the skillet.

4. Place a small bowl of water next to your work surface. Remove an egg roll wrapper from the stack, and cover the remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel to prevent them from drying out.

5. Place the wrapper on the work surface with a corner facing toward you. Place about ¼ cup of filling on the wrapper, and fold the bottom corner up over the filling. Tightly roll the wrapper in a cylinder, tucking in the corners as you roll until the wrapper completely encloses the filling.

6. Moisten the last corner with a bit of water and finish wrapping, so the moistened corner tightly seals to the egg roll, and there are no gaps to let the filling leak out.

7. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan (or deep fryer) until it reaches 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Carefully place 2-3 egg rolls at a time into the hot oil, and fry for about 4-5 minutes, turning the egg rolls over once, until golden brown. Careful not to get splashed by the hot oil!

REVIEW: DISNEY WORLD’S CHEESEBURGER SPRING ROLL RECIPE

I was quite pleased with my altered recipe for the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls. They were delicious!

In fact, I’m drooling just writing about them as sense memories of their greasy goodness weigh me down.

Currently, these spring rolls are paired with a garlic aioli dipping sauce at Magic Kingdom, but I opted for ketchup.

One of my favorite things about these bad boys is you can customize them to your liking.

Just as I went for a ketchup dipping sauce, you could also stick with more mustard or even a BBQ sauce. Instead of ground beef, try ground turkey. Don’t like onions? Skip them!

The magic of this, dare I say, delicacy, is that it’s pretty fair game as long as it fits in the enclosed wrapper. 

These little cuties were fun and surprisingly easy to make! 

I absolutely recommend trying this Cheeseburger Spring Roll recipe the next time you want to put a twist on the classic cheeseburger or even just to nosh on while reading the latest copy of WDW Magazine.
