Last night I was already planning my menu for our Superbowl party, while the Seahawks and 49’ers were playing.  I’ll be posting some really yummy appetizer recipes that week, but I thought I’d share one with you all today.

Since these delicious egg rolls can be made ahead of time and frozen, I thought I’d get a head start and make a batch today.

Recipe:

1 package of egg roll wraps (1 lb)
1 lb ground pork
1 tsp fresh ground ginger
2 cups shredded cabbage (I’m all about making things simple- so I buy the bagged)
1/4 1b bean sprouts
1/2  cup shredded carrots
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons soy sauce

Stir fry the ground pork and ginger in a skillet over high heat, until meat is browned. (about 3 minutes).  Add cabbage, bean sprouts, carrots, and green onions. (Cook about 2 min.)  Stir in soy sauce and mix thoroughly.  Let mixture cool.

Place egg roll wrap on flat surface (diagonally).  With a pastry brush, lightly dampen all sides with water. Scoop 2 tablespoons of mixture in center.

I think this one got a bit more than 2 tablespoons- oops!

  Fold bottom half up over the mixture tightly.  Fold  in both sides, and roll once, sealing the top.

 Once you get the hang of rolling these delicious morsels up-you’ll wonder why you ever bought them in the store! (I sure did!)

   I place the egg rolls on a baking sheet covered in wax paper (so they don’t stick).

Now you have two choices.  #1-You can freeze them.  **Tip- I place the entire pan in the freeze for 15-20 minutes-just until they are set.  Once set, I place them in freezer bags and they are ready for whenever you need a quick snack, lunch, or appetizer.  But, if you’re like me, you’re stomach will be growling at this point, so I’m going with #2- Cook those delicious morsels.  Here’s how:  Bake- Preheat oven to 400.  Place egg rolls individually on a greased baking sheet.  Use a pastry brush and lightly brush tops with olive oil.  Bake until golden brown. (10-12 minutes).  Or, you can deep fry.  Make sure oil is 350 degrees.  Cook for 2-3 minutes.  Serve with hot spicy mustard sauce or sweet and sour!  YUM!

Whatever you decide, I hope you enjoy!
