My friend is an unbelievable cook who is known for always making extra and sharing with others.  Since everything she makes is so incredible, she is often asked for her recipes.  She is one of those people that do not usually follow exact recipes, as she is naturally able to create things off the top of her head.  This Instructable was created so she could share her secret for one of her amazing dishes.

This recipe will show you how you can make your own delicious, authentic, homemade Vietnamese Egg Rolls.  You will be amazed at how tasty they are, and everyone will want to know your secret!  You may never settle for take-out again.
