Homemade Egg Rolls

These homemade egg rolls are filled with a chicken and vegetable filling. They are extremely versatile because you can use ground pork, ground beef, chopped shrimp, rice noodles and veggies as the filling. You can even turn these into dessert. Fill them up with chocolate or bananas or even apple pie stuffing for dessert egg rolls.

Difference between Egg Rolls and Spring Rolls

They might look similar in shape but egg rolls and spring rolls are very different. Egg rolls are chinese, they are wrapped in an egg roll wrapper and stuffed with a cooked filling and finally deep fried. Whereas spring rolls are Vietnamese and are made with translucent rice paper and stuffed generally with fresh, raw ingredients.

Freezing Egg Rolls

Egg rolls can be easily frozen. Once you’ve wrapped them, lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet and pop them in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer them to a ziplock bag and place them back in the freezer. They’ll stay good for up to 6 months. When you want to cook them, just fry them frozen. They’ll take a few minutes to crisp up and will be ready when they are golden brown!

It’s important that your oil is heated to 350 F while frying these. Use a thermometer to maintain the temperature. This will ensure that they don’t turn soggy, and come out crisp and golden brown. They only take a few minutes to fry so its important that you keep an eye on them.
