Filipino TuronOh yeah, this #SundaySupper is a fun one… Stuff, Wrap and Roll! So many awesome recipes to try! Things have been super busy around the house and I’m getting ready for a house guest so I went simple. Well, simple if you are a fan of frying. I’m kind of afraid of frying so this took a bit of guts but hey, if I can do it you can do it.

Filipino Turon-4But what is in those tasty looking rolls? Bananas and brown sugar. Oh yeah, these aren’t egg rolls, they are Turon, or sweet Lumpia, a Filipino dish. Such a great dessert and as you can tell it gets better with drizzled chocolate. They are so easy to put together and are perfect for a crowd. Beware though, they might drip as the brown sugar gets all melty and wonderful as the banana softens on the inside. I highly suggest eating over a plate.
