Lasang Pinoy Sundays - Finger Foods/Pica pica

This week's theme for Lasang Pinoy Sundays is Pica pica, finger food, perhaps appetizers or we eat with our hands!

Ham and Cheese sticks

This is my favorite past time food, yes 'past time' even though fried cheese can be high in cholesterol. Back in college, we love having this (sans the ham) along with footlong, sago and gulaman, and waffle on the streets (Dapitan!). I remember clearly it costs 2,50 for 5 pieces!

Vegetable nuggets

A spin-off of Chicken nuggets, I think, I buy this from the store and the kids like munching on them.


For the ham and cheese sticks, this is how I prepared it.

stix4 You'll need cheese, ham, lumpia wrapper. One egg, beaten.

stix3 Cut the cheese into thin slices and place it together with the ham inside the wrapper.

stix2 Fold them in like this and when you reach the middle fold the edges so that melted cheese won't come out of the wrapper (this happens a lot!)

stix1 Moisten the edge of the wrapper with egg and close by sticking it together.

Place the rolled ham and cheese sticks in a container and refrigerate before deep frying.

I thought that was turon at first. But your ham and cheese stick is a good idea for our kids baon. I'll tell my wife to cook this sometime.

The veggie nuggets also look good. Good way to force kids to eat their veggies :)
