#10DaysofTailgate: Bacon Cheeseburger Eggrolls

You know how sometimes you make something, and your husband thinks it's so good he eats *6* of them in one sitting and then can't figure out why he doesn't feel well?  No?  Just my house?
This would be the latest recipe that has caused my husband's overeating.
I think the most important thing about food for tailgating is that it is easily portable - not just yummy.  Although yummy is important.  It's always important.  Most people want finger food so that it's easy cleanup and you can try a bunch of different things.  Or one thing.  It's really up to you.
I found this recipe during one of the other fun things I do:  the Secret Recipe Club.  With all the flavours of a bacon cheeseburger in a crispy roll, what's not to love?
I present to you now from Flavours by Four Bacon Cheeseburger Eggrolls:

1 lb ground beef
6 slices bacon, chopped and cooked until crispy
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbsp prepared mustard
1 Tbsp oil
Sesame Seeds
1 pkg egg roll wrappers
1.  In a large skillet, brown ground beef with onion, until the onion is translucent.  Add mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and crispy bacon pieces.  Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
2.  Preheat oven to 375F.  To assemble rolls, place a spoonful of meat in a centre of an egg roll wrapper.  Top with cheese.  Spread the edges of the wrapper with water and roll.  (I used this tutorial).
3.  Place wrapped egg rolls on rimmed baking sheet.  Brush with oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes, until golden, and serve immediately.

Yup, there's bacon.  I actually cut it down from the original recipe.  The spices made the filling smell so good!
I just sprinkled the cheese on top, no measuring.  You just don't want to overfill.  I worked until I had no filling left, shredding cheese as I went if I ran out.
I got 13 rolls.  You can see that my technique improved as time went on.
Then brush with oil, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and bake.
So that you have something to eat like this.  We dipped them in ketchup.  They were yummy.  Just don't eat 6 at once.
