Recipe by

I had bought 2 pkgs of the Noysa eggroll wrappers & had a lot left over from making strawberrry & cream cheese eggrolls & so decided to make a savory eggroll, found everything for tacos in the cabinet & freezer but had no taco shells & decided to try the wrappers. They were eaten up in no time, ( mostly by me & am still stuffed to the gills, lol.) Great for a different yet flavorful appetizer, ( or a meal, such as I did.)

    Place eggroll wrapper on work surface at a triangle-angle. Place about 2 good sized tbsps into center of wrapper, fold the tip of the top of triangle over the turkey mix, gently tuck it in & then roll 1/2 way. Tuck both side points of triangle wrapper into the center of eggroll, continue to roll until it looks like an envelope. Brush the " flap" part w/ egg wash. Set in pan. Continue w/ remaining wrappers and mix. Once done, cook for about 10 minutes, turn over each egg roll. Continue cooking until light brown, ( about 5-10 minutes.) Set on a plate w/ paper towels to soak up any excess oil. In a small bowl, whisk taco sauce w/ sour cream & serve as a dipping sauce or use your imagination for other sauces.
