Eggrolls is one of our tropical side dish or it could be a dish of it's own. Because of it's popularity, we often prepare them on every special occasion or events, like weddings, birthdays, office party, etc. Eggrolls may be made with or without vegetables, or they can be made with any of your favorite veggies without the meat. The neat thing that always excites me, it that people tend to fall in love with this eggroll because it's not an everyday dish. Eggrolls may be prepared way ahead of time and kept frozen until it's time to cook them. Eggrolls may be fried frozen or bake. They are fresh, crispy and tasty.

Add the meat, carrots and potatoes into the egg mixture and mix them all together. (wrap them un-cooked)
2
Your eggroll wrappers must be thawed out and separated. Using a damped paper towel to cover the unused wrappers so they don't get dried up.
Using a teaspoon, scoop filling and place in the middle of the wrapper, then fold down each corner of the wrap, then roll and use cornstarch for pasting.

For paste: Heat 1 cup of water at medium low heat. Add the corn starch and stir constantly until it thickens. Dab with your finger and paste the corner of the wrap to close the roll.

5
For freezing: Place un-cooked eggrolls in a rectangular plastic container with cover, line them up and use a sheet of wax paper between the rows to avoid the eggrolls from sticking together. (Eggrolls may be kept frozen for 1 month - pls. date your container)
