Happy Happy Joy Joy

Egg rolls...what more can I say? It's like Yummy present wrapped up in a crispy little present. It is fried I know...but everything in moderation...right? I rationalize the frying calories by taking note of the vegetables that are hiding inside....OK, they are just good and I want you to make them and enjoy just how yummy they are. I like to serve them with a couple of different sauces....It just depends on what kind of mood I am in. My favorite sauces are Hoisin, Sweet and Sour, golden plum, and Sriracha. I always make extra because they are super fabulous eaten cold the next day...the skin is soft the next day, but they make a great lunch.
EGG ROLLS

1 package egg roll wraps
1 small bok choy
1 bell pepper
1 package broccoli slaw
2 handfuls bean sprouts
1 small bunch green onions
2 c chicken, pork, bay shrimp chopped small
5 T oyster sauce
Salt & pepper
Lightly coat a heavy pan or wok with olive oil. Over medium-high heat fry the chicken or pork (not the shrimp or it will over cook) until golden brown. Set aside. All the vegetables need to be cut up into small pieces-not diced. In the heavy pan or wok sauté the vegetables for a few minutes. The purpose is not to cook the vegetables through, but to get out excess water. Add the chicken and the oyster sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
Fill the wraps and fry according to instructions on your fryer. The wrap should be crisp and golden brown. Serve immediately or the wraps do wilt a bit.

Enjoy!

These look great. Since I live quite a ways from my local Indian market, I always manage to find what I need in a pinch at my local Asian market.
Lucky to get all these goodies!

I like homemade egg rolls so much better than take-out ones. These look delish! I love the leftover ones too - cold from the fridge.

Kathy, Our markets are so big in Utah, you really can get just about anything in them! We are lucky but shopping can get a bit tedious. I look forward to playing with some of your great recipes.
Thanks Bonnie and Reeni...you know I love the yummy stuff I find on your sites!
