Baked Avocado Rolls with Phyllo dough | Avocado Spring Rolls | Appetizers

Baked Avocado  rolls , a delicious snack with crispy outside and creamy avocado inside. It's a perfect appetizer for your meal or a snack to munch on along with your evening tea. It's one of the easiest snacks that you can make in minutes provided that you have phyllo sheets. 

When we visited BJ's restaurant for the first time a couple of months back, we ordered the avocado egg rolls for the appetizers and that's the first time that i had tasted avocado rolls and i loved it so much. Crispy outside and creamy avocado filling make it so good.It's been in my mind for a long time to try these crispy rolls and finally last week I tried this Avocado Rolls, instead of using egg wrapper as pastry, I used the phyllo dough that's sitting idle in my refrigerator for a week. Since I was using phyllo dough, I baked the rolls instead of deep frying, one more reason to indulge these rolls without any guilt 😀.

To be honest it was way too good than what i had expected.Because of phyllo sheets, the outside was so crispy and i'm sure that it would stayed crispy for longer time than the one made with egg wrappers.I won't say that it was like BJ's Avocado Egg rolls, but if you like that one, definitely you're gonna love this, so what are you waiting for, try this rolls and enjoy with your family.
