Instant Pot Exploded Egg Rolls

Hey all! Kim from TheWildWaynes here to tell you the story of the exploded egg rolls.

Wayyyyyyyy back in the day (alright, alright, FIVE YEAR AGO) Dave and I actually thought we were chubby. I mean, the Kim of that time should see the post-kid “Kim bod” and appreciate herself a little more.

Anywho, we jumped on the Keto bandwagon and could not get enough of this “exploded egg roll” recipe. Now that we are tiny living (and I am too lazy to get propane) we finally were able to adapt this to the Instant Pot.

Same perfect flavor, same crunch, same overall just perfect goodness. You must watch the YouTube video (see below) — Hailey makes an appearance and it is cute and perfect. Just like her.

Pin now, enjoy later! <3
