Halifax Meat Paste Egg Rolls!
Egg rolls are a funny thing in Canada - they vary wildly based on region. In most places, they’re wrapped the way described here, rather than the burrito-style wrapping that is common elsewhere.
In Ottawa, they’re cylindrical and mostly meat. One end is left open, and the meat spilling out gets very brown - those “burnt end” eggrolls are hugely popular!
In Halifax, it’s all about the meat paste egg rolls. Sure, there’s a small amount of vegetable matter in there... but it’s dwarfed and enveloped by the star of the show - meat!

|With 2017 being Canada's 150th birthday, it's about time I wrote the Canadian cookbook I've been planning for YEARS.
"More than Poutine" will be a Canadian cookbook like no other - written by a Canadian living away, it includes both traditional homecooking recipes, as well as homemade versions of many of the snacks, sauces, convenience foods, and other food items that are hard to come by outside of Canada! High quality gluten-free versions of most recipes are included.
