Step 5: using rice paper wrappers

You can make egg rolls with rice paper wrappers - they taste great, but they don't look very pretty. ;)

You'll want to soak the wrappers in warm water for 15-20 seconds until they're nice and soft - but not longer because they will start dissolving!

Lay the wrapper out flat and then place the filling at one side of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper over the filling once and then twice, pushing the air out as you go. The fold both sides into the middle and keep rolling. You can assemble lots of these at once and keep them on wax paper and covering them with damp paper towels before drying.

Keep these as tight as possible - if you leave big air spaces in them, oil will seep in during frying!

You'll fry these at 350-375 F for just a few minutes. Place them on paper towels to drain when they're done. :D
Can I just go ahead and Favorite every one of your posts? ;)
So nice Recipe!!
hmmmm... looking real nice.. :)
@Jessyratfink; Brilliant! I have tweeted your post because we all need good recipes for Egg Rolls. Cheers! : ) Site
I like to use ground turkey and celery.
so what's the difference in taste between the rice paper and egg roll wrappers? <br>also, how difficult would it be to make our own wrappers?
I'm looking for a good sweet and sour sauce, homemade. Do you have a recipe for that?
Try using italian sausage (either mild or hot or even a mixture) for your meat instead of ground pork. That will give you the taste you're looking for. I've been making them that way for years and my family raves over them! They've even requested egg rolls for birthday presents before . :)
Nasoya makes egg roll wrappers that the restaurants use and they are thicker and you do not have to wet them or do anything except wrap the innards in. I have used them several times and they turn out perfect. They can also double as dim sum wrappers. <br> <br>http://www.nasoya.com/products/asian-style-egg-rolls.html
yumm. you always have good food posted. are you a chef or something?
like! will give it a try! thanks for sharing!
Sounds wonderful. I would like to know how many wrappers are needed to do that much filling?
I'd say at least 40-50! I did about 10 of the rice paper wrappers, and 20ish of the egg roll wrappers and still had filling left over. :)
Looks very very yummy!
These look delicious! I think the brown sugar would complement the rest of the ingredients nicely.
Don't use spring roll wrappers....
They look AWESOME! nice recipe. Now I know!
I love egg rolls! And your recipe looks amazing to make in home. Thanks for sharing, Jessy! :-)
