We love egg rolls at The Freshman Cook! No doubt about it. Actually, I guess I should say that we love homemade egg rolls, where we pick and choose what we want in our egg rolls. My college senior son was home over the holidays, so we made these homemade egg rolls, one of his favorites.
Homemade Egg Rolls
I cut up the following ingredients, and then everyone that was eating picked what they wanted to fill their egg rolls. Here is what we offered:
- Chicken Chunks
- Scrambled Egg
- Diced Onion
- Chopped Green Onion
- White Cheese
- Soy Sauce
- Teriyaki Sauce
I cooked the chicken in a frying pan with pan spray. I sprinkled it with
garlic powder. I bought the shrimp raw, deveined both sides, and
boiled it with Zatarans seasoning.
Here is my husbands egg roll, filled to the top with corn, rice, egg, onion, shrimp, and cheese. He also sprinkled some Teriyaki sauce on top. I did the wrapping. I used a pastry brush dipped in water to go round the perimeter of the wrapper. Then fold in the sides, and roll up, making sure to not leave anything loose or open. I used very little oil, and just kept turning the egg roll to brown it on all sides. We didn’t get very fancy on plating these egg rolls. Actually, we just stood round the kitchen and munched. They were very good and tasty! This is the shrimp egg roll. Yum! We served cocktail sauce, sweet and sour, and duck sauce on the side. All the variations were delicious. We were talking about all the different items we could put in the next egg rolls as we were eating these. Enjoy! Thanks for joining me today! We are partying here:
