Easy Egg Rolls

I found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook soon after I married Mr. Homegrown.  It quickly became a favorite of his.  These egg rolls are really easy to make and they are very frugal!  It was a win, win in the early days of our marriage.

The recipe calls for ground beef.  I have used ground pork before and they are just as delicious.  This is a recipe that can be used as just a "guide".  Customize it to suit the stuff you have in your freezer  likes of your family.  I think they will thank you for a Delicious meal.  String Beane calls this "china food". 

1/2 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
1 8 oz package of coleslaw mix
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
Onion powder to taste
1 16 oz package refrigerated egg roll wrappers
Vegetable oil for frying

In a bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients and mix well.  Place a heaping tablespoonful of beef mixture in the center of one egg roll wrapper.  Fold bottom corner over filling.  Fold sides toward center over filling.  Dip your finger in some water and dampen the edge of the remaining corner.  Roll up tightly to seal.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients.  You should get around 20 egg rolls.  Give or take.  

In an electric skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees.  Fry egg rolls for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.  

I serve these with some store bought sweet and sour sauce.  Mr. Homegrown can throw down on several of these. The little Beanes eat them okay.  I like them very much.  They also freeze will and can be heated in the toaster oven for a quick meal or snack.

  19. I never tried to make in egg, our family dislike it always as well as avoid to eat egg in any dishes, but your dish looks testy and yummy, will cook soon.

  20. Thank you for visiting my Whisking Wednesday party last week. I hope to see you again this week! These egg rolls look so good!

  21. I love making egg rolls. I use whatever is left over in the fridge. We've had taco eggrolls, pulled pork eggrolls, etc. I always bake mine now and we love them. I bake them on cooling racks so they get crunchy on all sides. I usually flip them half way through cooking.
