Ever get one of those random Prego Cravings?!
The ones where you literally think
“WHAT? Where did that come from?”
Today I woke up wanting Egg Rolls…I haven’t had an egg roll in years. I have no idea where the craving came from. But I was determined to have one today!
I interrupt this Egg Roll post with a random side note!
Lately I have been on Sean’s case for eating out all the time. It’s such a waste of money. I don’t understand why you would spend $10 on a meal at the fast food restaurant, when you could pack a lunch from home for, say $1.
Ok, now back to the post!
Because I knew that going out to get an egg roll was OUT OF THE QUESTION (to avoid the “I told you so” from Sean), I had to make them myself!
It has been at least 10 years since I have made an Egg Roll.
But I figured it was like riding a bike….right?
You never forget how….right?
Yup, I was right!!!!
All you need:
Egg Roll Shells
It definitely helps to have one of these beauties! I got it for my birthday, and it is my favorite kitchen item!!!
I cut my cabbage by hand, but used the salad shooter for the rest of the veggies!
Then, soak them for 30 minutes completely covered by water.
And of course, while the veggies are soaking, you might as well enjoy some ants on a log with your extra celery!
We were out of raisins, but The Little Man would not eat them without the “ants”! So I had to sub with chocolate chips. Trust me, he did not mind one bit, as chocolate chips are his favorite things ever!
If you haven’t made these before, they are a great learning item for the little ones. We’ve taught William to pick which one has 1, 2, and 3 ants on it!
Once the 30 minutes of soaking is up; you will combine 3 eggs, soy sauce (or another sauce, I used a teriyaki sauce) and salt & pepper in another bowl.
Drain all the water from the veggies and add the shredded chicken, then combine with the egg mixture.
Then you are ready to roll your Egg Rolls!
One at a time, place the wrapper diagonal and the filling in the center.
Fold the bottom corner up, then the sides in, and continue rolling up. It helps to wet down the sides to make the wrapper stick to itself.
Bring oil to about 350degrees. I filled my pan about 1/2 inch deep.
Fry each side until lightly brown.
YUM YUM YUM!!
What a fabulous dinner!
Of course, none would be complete in the Barker household without some fruit as well as a delicious dessert!
