Easy Baked Egg Rolls
My mother used to make the best homemade fried egg rolls. I remember it took her forever to make them. She spent hours preparing the stuffing, filling the egg rolls and frying them.
The kitchen always smelled so good when she was making them, and the time went so slow while we anxiously waited for a taste.
A few years ago, I took mom’s egg roll recipe, ditched the fryer and baked them. They came out just as crispy and flavorful as I remember her fried egg rolls, and in a lot less time and no mess from frying.
That is a win all of the way around.
After perfecting her recipe, I’ve tried all kinds egg roll fillings, and buffalo chicken egg rolls are one of our favorites. Serve these as an appetizer (great for football) or dinner with a salad like this zesty baby arugula salad with pistachios and don’t forget to make homemade blue cheese dressing to dip them in.
