Do you have to fry eggrolls?

I got the wrappers and hope to get the rest of the ingredients over the weekend and make them next weeek - but I don't want to fry them, think they'd be OK baked?

I have baked them. I rub them with a little oil first.

I never steamed them, but i would imangine you could, in a bamboo steamer, with the end facing down.
We have a new member from a couple of days ago that could probably answer you, but I can't remember her name.
I'll look back and come back. Then you can PM her.

I have baked them. The do not come out as good, but they are certainly passable.

Just curious, why don't you want to fry them? On another post you want to fry kugel instead of baking and here you want to bake eggrolls instead of frying. Those two things just seem backwards to me, not that there is anything wrong with doing it that way.

As an alternative, in the future, you could make Thai spring rolls instead. They're not cooked at all (although if there's any meat in the filling, that's cooked beforehand). Here's my recipe: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...uce-43904.html

Crispy rolls are usually referred to as "spring rolls" and use dough as the wrapping. Uncooked rice paper wrapped rolls are usually referred to as "summer rolls".

Although you can bake it, like GB hinted, it sort of defeats the purpose. You won't get the same crispyness and flavor from deep or pan frying them.

Heh, I was using the term my local Thai restaurant uses on their menu, but I have seen them used as you describe in cookbooks.
