Homemade Pork Egg Rolls

It’s that time of year again.

Super Bowl.

Not that I ever get too excited about watching the game.

Especially since our Vikings not only didn’t get close this year, they haven’t even made it to the Super Bowl! Not once!

But we still watch the game. And we always root for the underdog.

And we always eat. Lots and lots of food.

One of my favorites is these egg rolls.

Homemade Pork Egg Rolls

They really are so simple to make and in my humble opinion way better than those you get at a fast-food restaurant.

I also like to bake them instead of fry but you can do either.

If you’ve never rolled up an egg roll you might find it takes a bit of practice to get them just right but once you do the process goes pretty quickly.

I place the wrapper on a diagonal and put about 2 tablespoons of the pork filling in the center.

Then fold the bottom half up over the mixture tightly.  Then fold in both sides, and roll once. To seal the egg roll I like to take a bit of water on a basting brush or even just my finger and rub it along the top corner’s edge. Then roll the wrap over the top corner and seal.

 

It will look something like this.

Once the egg rolls are sealed I place them on a baking sheet covered in wax paper or parchment paper so they don’t stick. You will probably need two baking sheets as this recipe usually makes about 22 egg rolls.

 

When all of the egg rolls are completed I like to place the baking sheet in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. This just helps the egg rolls to set up so they don’t fall apart before baking.
You can either bake them after they set or place them in freezer bags and freeze them.

 

 

I usually serve these with my homemade sweet and sour sauce or my husband’s favorite, honey mustard.

They definitely make the perfect game day food but we enjoy them for lunch or just a snack too!

Here’s the recipe!

  1. Yum this is going on the menu for next week and here’s my thing with the super bowl – I don’t even know who’s playing. Never got into it and never seeing that change. If the weather is good, I’ll be outside that day working in the garden. Have a great weekend!

    1. They are so good, Carole! I hope you enjoy! To be honest, I’m not much into football myself, but I do love entertaining during the game, so I’ll probably be chatting (and eating) more than watching the game! Enjoy your weekend! The weather you are having sounds so awesome!
