Egg Rolls and Spring Rolls (Great for the Freezer!)
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)

From "Chinese Cooking the American Way". My mom wasn't much for cooking, but she would make these for me every year on my birthday during my teen years - I always requested them! When I moved out, she gave me the cookbook. I no longer eat egg rolls in restaurants - these are so much better! My kids love to help roll them up - it becomes quite an event when we have them! They freeze very well - my mom used to make up a batch and freeze them in packages of two so that we could take out a couple here and there as we wanted them. It was just the two of us, so that worked well. I have a family of five, so have to double the recipe if I want any left for freezing...These days, I'm always trying to cut fat and calories, so will often set aside some of the filling for myself before making the egg rolls - it's so yummy that it satisfies me and saves my waistline from the frying! Times are a guesstimate, as there are no times listed in the recipe for things like marinating (not included in time estimates) and sauteeing the veggies - and I haven't actually timed myself when I've made them in the past. The next time I make them, I'll try to remember to write times down....the amount of egg rolls will vary depending on how much filling you use for each one. The recipe yields 30-35 according to the cookbook; however, I usually end up with between 18-24 because I put more filling in them....if you do also, you won't need all of the egg roll skins......
