Bacon
Jalapeno
smoked chicken
cilantro
black bean
pepperjack

Better than any of the App style, restaurant ones


Bacon
mac n Cheese
Jalapeno(if you want some kick)
Lump Crab meat

People go NUTS for them. . .

Sky is the limit with eggroll wrappers. Even Philly Cheese steak eggrolls that seem to be becoming all the rage in DC. If you can think it, you can wrap it, and fry it.

Take a fistfull of fresh bread dough; roll it out into a thin membrane. Place a portion of pre-cooked and seasoned venison cubes, saute'd onion, and your favorite cheese in the middle. Enclose the ingredients in the dough by folding the edges up and around the filling. Pinch the edges to seal, and deep fry, or bake until the dough is golden brown. Serve hot, with a side of garden salad.

Oh, yeh!!!

Fillings for egg rolls or wontons (other than Asian):

Reuben w/ thousand island or russian dressing dipping sauce

Italian Egg Rolls (my personal fave)
Ground sausage or beef, roasted sweet red peppers, vermicelli (broken), & pine nuts, w/ marinara dipping sauce

Avocado & lobster or crab egg rolls

Sweet:

Apple Pie Egg rolls sprinkled w/ powdered sugar & served warm w/ vanilla ice cream

Nutella & banana Egg rolls

So many possibilities.

I cannot buy those particular kinds of wrappers locally (much thinner than the regular Chinese egg roll wrappers). In Hawaii I used to be able to buy the wrappers for Filipino egg rolls (long and thin, sort of like a cigar, can't remember what they're called).

Great eats, all of them!

Oh yes, the Filipino nurses know how to make extra cash from me. 30 Lumpia for $15. They are frozen so I can set them up for lunches. $1 for lunch is really good!

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
