As a single mother of five children, Beard's mother tried to be creative with cuisine, teaching her children to have a balanced and sophisticated palate. She was naturally skilled in culinary arts, created the original “ground turkey egg roll” recipe and it was a hit. Her dream was to open a restaurant to share her passion with the world.

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

1 lb ground beef
1 cup shredded cheese
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tsp pepper
1 package egg roll wrappers
2 cups Vegetable oil
1/4 cup water to moisten wrappers

- Heat vegetable oil in medium skillet to 350 degrees
- Brown ground beef in separate skillet
- Drain ground beef
- Mix ground beef, cheese, seasoning in large bowl
- Place the wrapper on the work surface with a corner facing towards you.
- Place about 1/4 cup of filling on the wrapper, and fold the top corner down over the filling.
- Tightly roll the wrapper into a cylinder, tucking in the corners as you roll, until the wrapper completely encloses the filling.
- Moisten the last corner with a little 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.
- Place filled egg rolls in oil and fry for 2 minutes on each side
- Drain excess oil and serve with your favorite sauce
