Egg Rolls

Sherry Blizzard


Almost anything can go inside an egg roll. I learned to make these almost 40 years ago and they have always been one of my mother's favorite foods. My friend always used ground pork, but I also love shrimp. You can go meatless or combine a variety of meats. They are crispy and freeze well. This recipe makes A LOT. Freeze them for later and simply put in the oven to reheat. I serve them with sweet and sour sauce.
NOTE: I even tried cherry pie filling. Apple Pie filling with Ice Cream would be delicious!
