Easy Egg Rolls

7 Mar

I failed miserably at my first attempt at making egg rolls. Several years ago I found a recipe for oven-baked egg rolls so I wanted to give it a shot. My first mistake was using spring roll wraps instead of egg roll wraps. I looked all over the Asian food isle in the grocery store and could only find spring roll wrappers. I figured they’d probably work. Tip: Spring Roll wrappers and Egg Roll wrappers ARE NOT THE SAME. I found egg roll wraps about a year later in the produce section… by the tofu. Refrigerated. DUH. Anyway, needless to say baked spring roll wraps are not very good. So learn from my failure.

Much to my delight this second attempt at making egg rolls couldn’t have gone better. It was super easy and all steps went off without a hitch. My uncooked egg rolls didn’t unravel when putting them in the oil (thanks to the egg wash!) and they tasted great!Ā  I only made 8 because I used some leftover egg roll wraps from earlier in the week, but I wished I had more as Seth almost scarfed down the whole batch. Needless to say this recipe is a keeper!

    They look great! I like the fact that they are baked rather than deep-fried.

      Actually.. this is a different recipe than the first one I tried.. figured I’d go for the traditional unhealthy fried egg roll this time! šŸ˜€
