Don't get me wrong. They're good. But they're not exceptional. If I'm spending 2 to 3 hours on these little guys you know I want them to be worth it. :)

Those were made with spring roll wrappers, not the thicker egg roll wrapper -- that's why they are smooth and flat.

The wheat eggrolls in the 1st photo.

Yes, are the eggroll wrappers to achieve what is desired here.

NOT the spring roll rice wrappers.

Funny that I should come across this thread today. Yesterday we ordered take out which included egg rolls. They were really blistery. In fact they were done too well. The edges were hard and not fit to eat. They were overcooked with a tiny amount of burnt. The rest were fine, but I would have preferred that they had been taken out of the fat earlier.

Here's hoping your turn out perfect! Good luck.

If you have egg roll wrappers left over, try this Pilipino dessert egg roll:



Note: This is my recipe, but I asked Mary Grace to prepare it on the video because she is cuter than me, more personable than me, and she's Pinay!
