Egg roll wrappers are a bit thicker and most definitely need more filling, but as far as the technique goes, everything is similar. A-1 recipe!

I cooked the meat (pork and shrimp) plus added and sauted the other ingredients. i like bean sprouts so it was added to the cabbage, carrot, onion, garlic, ginger, oyster sauce mixture.

I decided to bake them in my toaster oven but first brushed olive oil on all over the outside (Peanut oil might have been a better choice) . They browned up nicely, but in hindsight frying them might have been better.

One thing I might have done different is use less filling in each egg roll. Mine resembled fat cigars and prone to rip.

Before embarking on this recipe, I want to make sure that’s a typo!

I like the taste better when the filling is not cook. Because when i deep fry it, it is cook all the way through. To avoid it from being oily, i use 3 layes of tissue ina bowl and place the cooked rolls vertically

Your directions and advice were so clear that I decided to take a chance. I am so glad that I did because these are the best egg rolls that my husband and I have ever eaten! Thank you for sharing your mom’s recipe.

Looks like its time for a trip to one of my most dangerous places – our local Asian market. If you get a shiver later this week Jaden, that will be me muttering your name under my breath while I try to make room in my refrigerator and cupboards for all the items that I suddenly HAVE to have!

I made this eggroll recipe last year and fried them up at her party. Her Dad, Mr. Wong, declared them the best eggrolls he’d ever tasted and said he would never roll another one. I have been appointed the official Eggroll Queen for Chinese New Year going forward. They really are amazing. The tipping of the pan for the juices to run out is ingenious and really makes the difference. THANK YOU so much for sharing your mom’s recipe.
