Great Egg Rolls

Our primer teaches you how to be a wrap artist.

Three steps to perfect egg rolls.

Take a look at these tips for creating Egg Rolls:

Egg Rolls with Vegetable Filling

Egg Rolls with Crab and Cream Cheese Filling

Egg Rolls with Ground Meat Filling

Try This Technique:

1. Place an egg roll wrapper with a point toward you. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the desired filling across and just below the center of the egg roll wrapper. Fold the bottom point of the egg roll wrapper over the filling. Then tuck it under the filling.

2. Fold the side corners of the egg roll wrapper over the filling, forming an envelope shape.

3. Roll the egg roll toward the remaining corner. Moisten the top point and press firmly to seal.

Wrap wontons the easy way!

Take a look at these tips for creating Wontons:

Wontons with Pork Shrimp Filling

Instructions:

1. Place the wonton wrapper with a point toward you. Spoon two teaspoonfuls of the desired filling just below the center. Fold the bottom point over the filling. Then tuck it under the filling.

2. Roll the wonton wrapper once to cover the filling, leaving about one inch unrolled at the top of the wrapper, as shown. Moisten the right-hand corner of the wrapper with a little water.

3. Grasp the right- and left-hand corners of the wrapper. Bring these corners toward you, below the filling, as shown. Overlap the left-hand and the right-hand corners. Press the corners together securely to seal.

Take a look at these tips for creating Spring Rolls:

Vegetable Spring Rolls

Instructions:

Step 1.

1. Quickly dip each rice paper into water and then place it between 2 clean damp cotton dish towels. Leave the rice papers between the damp towels until you use them. The moisture makes the crisp rice paper soft and flexible.

Step 2.

2. Roll up the rice paper just until the filling is enclosed. If using meat or fish, place 2 halves cut side up and back to back, on the rice paper next to the filling. Fold the sides over the filling and the meat or fish and continue rolling, forming a packet. Only 1 layer of rice paper covers the meat or fish, allowing you to see its outline through the wrapper.

Save time and buy egg roll and wonton wrappers from the supermarket.
  • Egg roll wrappers (sometimes called egg roll skins) and wonton wrappers both are thin sheets of noodle dough used for fried and steamed Asian specialties. Most supermarkets or Asian grocery stores sell them either refrigerated or frozen.
  • Egg roll wrappers are available square or round and regular or thin. The shape doesn't matter -- they both work well in our recipes. The thinner egg roll wrappers make slightly flakier fried pastries than the regular ones, but you can use either kind.
