Cheese Dog Bread Rolls are as fun to make as they are to eat and are the best use for day-old sliced bread. Golden, crunchy, and stuffed with meaty hot dogs and melty cheese, they’re a hearty snack or appetizer kids and adults alike will love!
Trim edges of each bread and with a rolling pin, flatten until very thin.
Arrange a piece of hotdog and two cheese strips at the edge of the bread facing you and roll bread into a log to enclose filling. Press lightly on seams to completely seal (or secure with toothpicks and remove when ready to dredge in bread crumbs). Repeat with remaining bread slices.
In a bowl, combine eggs and milk and whisk together until well-beaten.
In a shallow dish, place Panko bread crumbs.
Dip the bread roll in egg mixture and roll in bread crumbs, patting down crumbs to fully coat. Repeat with the remaining rolls.
Arrange breaded rolls in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for 3 to 5 minutes.
In a wide, thick-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inches deep of oil. Place prepared bread rolls seam side down and deep-fry, turning as needed, until golden and crunchy.
Remove from pan and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve hot with catsup for dipping.
The island nation of the Philippines holds a special place in the heart of everyone in my family. Not only were our travels in the Philippines one of the most incredible experiences that we have ever had but my wife, Christina, was born in Manila. She lived there until she was 10, and Filipino culture is still a part of our every day lives. As my family sits at home, unable to travel due to the travel shut down, we’ve taken to reliving our favorite travel experiences in the kitchen. Over the past few weeks I’ve shared my favorite Icelandic recipes and my favorite Jordanian recipes. But thanks to my wife’s incredible cooking, and the access that I’ve had to her parents, who are two of the most incredible cooks I’ve ever met, these easy Filipino recipes are going to blow your taste buds away!
When my family spent our three weeks exploring the capital of Manila, the beaches of Boracay, and all the things to do in Palawan, one thing that we just couldn’t get enough of was the mouthwatering Filipino food. Everything that we tasted, from the classic restaurants in Puerto Princessa to the fish markets of El Nido was among the best that I’ve ever tasted. These Filipino recipes take those flavors and bring them home. You’ll find delicious Filipino adobo, classic lumpia, delicious turon, and more.
Filipino cuisine is often referred to as the original “fusion” food. Part of what makes Filipino food so unique is that it draws inspiration from such a huge variety of cultures. In Filipino dishes, you’ll find hints of Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Malaysian, and even American flavors. But one thing is for sure, Filipino dishes are rich, flavorful, and offer something that will satisfy nearly every palate.
Filipino recipes are often heavy on meat. Pork and chicken both play a large part in the diet of the islanders. Being that the Philippines is an island nation, seafood, of course, also plays a huge part in the diet.
At its core, Filipino food is focused around family. Every dish is best when enjoyed with others. But as much as it the meals that match the incredibly hospitable culture of the country, the dishes can vary widely from region to region. From classics such as kaldereta and pancit the incredible range of seafood fare delved from the over 7,000 islands that make up the country of the Philippines. Even among restaurants in the Philippines, you’ll find every manner of twist of Philippine recipes.
One of the things that I love most about travel is that the memory of the experience hangs around far longer than the travel experience itself. When I’m at home, especially during lockdown times like this, I often find myself wanting to relive the moments of my favorite travel experiences. Sometimes that means sitting down with one of my favorite travel books. But one of the best ways is by cooking an incredible meal and to live the trip all over again through your taste buds.
So warm up the oven and grab the apron. These 5 fantastic Filipino recipes will take you back to the Pearl of the Orient.
There is probably no Filipino food that is more coveted within the Philippine side of our family than Filipino pork barbeque. Whether we order from the local Filipino restaurants or make pork bbq from scratch, there are countless dirty games that take place as everyone tries to get away with more than their own fair share.
This classic Filipino bbq recipe combines an amazing marinade and a sweet bbq sauce to make one of the most delicious Filipino bbq kebabs I’ve ever tasted.
Filipino pork bbq is one of the most classic dishes. You’ll find it as often at backyard parties as you will among the many street food vendors. Among Filipinos, it seems that everyone has their own secret pork barbeque recipe.
This Filipino pork bbq recipe takes a sweet and tangy approach with loads of garlic, soy sauce, and a twist of 7-UP for tenderness and flavor. My favorite pork barbeque recipes have a lightly sticky sauce and are cooked over a fire with a slightly charred finish.
The sugar from the sauce and 7-UP help the sauce to caramelize. The fatty and flavorful pork meat remains soft, tender, and juicy. Filipino pork barbeque is awesome on its own or paired with sinigang, pancit, or just about anything to be honest. Barbeque is awesome! And if we are ever eating it together, I WILL try to eat the last piece.

When it comes to the best Filipino recipes, Sinigang, or Filipino soup is the hands-down favorite of Christina and the boys. This easy Filipino sinigang recipe is on the menu at least a few times a week. It’s often cooked with either pork or seafood. And sinigang is traditionally served with rice. With the soup either poured over the top of the rice or mixed within.
Sinigang is usually mixed with tamarind powder to get a sour, tangy taste that helps to perk up the senses. And we typically cook it in large batches and reheat throughout the week for snacks, lunches, and dinners.
Pork sinigang is one of the staples in our house. Rarely a week goes by that there isn’t a pot of this sour and tangy Filipino sinigang soup simmering on our stove. We’ll eat it for lunch, dinner, and even breakfast sometimes.
It’s savory, flavorful, and an absolute hit on cold days or when someone is fighting a cold. The tamarind soup base gives sinigang a nice zing. And it can be altered easily by substituting in any number of veggies. Or you can switch out the pork for seafood such as shrimp.

Next to sinigang, none of these Filipino recipes are made nearly as often as the classic chicken adobo. There is, perhaps, no other Filipino dish that is as personal, and close to the heart as this classic fare. It seems that everyone and their Lola have their own secret chicken adobo recipe. And every family believes their recipe is the best, most authentic chicken adobo recipe that exists.
This is an easy Pinoy dish to make. But that doesn’t mean that this is the easiest Filipino recipe to master. But I will say that if you want to understand Filipino cuisine, taking your time to become a chicken adobo expert is the best way. But it won’t make you any friends. Because, as I said, everyone believes that their mama or Lola’s recipe is better than yours. But your Filipino friends might say, it’s pretty good. And that’s a huge compliment.
Chicken adobo is one of the most iconic and classic Filipino recipes. Every family has their own twist on this delicious and saucy meal. And every family believes that theirs is the best.
This easy chicken adobo recipe will satisfy your taste buds any day of the week. It’s best served over a bed of rice and enjoyed with a side of sinigang.
