How To Make big easy eggrolls w/ creole dipping sauce

  • 1
    Add olive oil to a large non-stick skillet over med-high heat. Add celery, chopped onion, and chopped bell pepper. Cook until they just begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Turn heat to low and add diced andouille sausage. If you can't find andouille, use a flavorful kielbasa pork sausage in its place. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the sausage renders some of its fat.

    Add cooked chicken breast. When the chicken is warmed through, add the following ingredients: green onions, cream cheese, hot sauce, and Cajun seasoning. Stir until the cream cheese an seasonings are evenly melted and incorporated into the mixture. Remove from heat and set aside.

    Set egg roll wrapper on a large plate, in the shape of a diamond -- with the pointed ends up. Place 1/3 cup of the filling in the lower half of the wrapper. Fold the sides in over the filling, then roll the wrapper over the filling, away from you...tucking as you go. Brush the inside of the wrap with water as your roll tightly...this will give you a nice tight seal. Seal the edges with more water and lay seam side down. Repeat the process with 4-5 more wrappers.

    Heat oil in a skillet with high sides over med-high heat for about 5 minutes. When the oil is hot, cook the egg rolls. Avoid crowding, which causes soggy egg rolls. Cook until golden-brown, then flip over and cook until the other side is browned. Drain well on paper towels and set aside while you make the dipping sauce.

    Make the dipping sauce by combining the following ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine all the ingredients. To serve, place the egg rolls on a serving platter...along with a bowl of the creamy dipping sauce.
