Are they frozen after cooked? How do you reheat them?

Ran to store after work yesterday, picked up the stuff for the egg rolls. Called my wife asked her to make rice ahead, thank G-d for rush hour traffic there was time to cook it and even put in the refrigerator for almost an hour. Though I prefer to keep rice in the fridge overnight before frying i a pinch it worked.
Here is my exact the same dish, and let me tell you it was good. I have not made it in a while and the whole family definitely missed it and enjoyed it.

Yes, they are cooked. Partially thawed, put them in a paper bag and in the microwave for about two minutes. That is how they come out the crispiest, personally I don't care if they are crispy or not. You could refry them, too.

It seems CharlieD and RL and I all had the same inspiration...my camera doesn't seem to work (need a new one). I made my own egg rolls....

Egg Roll Wrappers Recipe - a Chinese Egg Roll Wrappers Recipe With Ice Water

And filled them with a combination of shrimp, bok choy, zucchini, and carrot.

My filling comes out so great. But those egg rolls that you Charlie, and RockLobster put my wrappers to shame. I just can't seem to get the wrappers to come out as crispy, and golden as i'd like. The eggrolls are still very good. But if I could get mine to fry up like yours, they'd be perfect instead of very good. Give me your frying secret, please.

My filling is made up of cubed chicken or pork, stir-fried until just done through so that the meat is well flavored and tender, and placed into a large, glass bowl. This is combined with the following veggies, and flavors, all saute'd to that wonderful, crispy-soft stage: water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, bok choy, diced carrot, lots of bean sprouts, ginger, fresh garlic, soy sauce.

The filling is crisp and flavorfull, and works so well with sweet & pineapple sour sauce. Sometimes I change up the protein to shrimp, or scallops, and use a lemon sweet and sour sauce. That too is a great combination. I just need the shell to be as nice as yours are.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
