Serve your egg rolls with your favorite dipping sauce.

Heat oil in your deep fryer (or a pot of oil on the stove) to 375 degrees F. Place a paper towel on a plate next to the hot oil.heat-oil-Flickr-tracy apps.jpg

Lay your egg roll wrappers on a flat surface and spoon a small amount of the desired filling into the middle. Don’t overfill the egg roll wrappers.fill-wonton-skin-Flickr-Kristin.jpg

Fold one corner of the egg roll wrapper over the filling, then fold the two sides of the wrapper in and over the filling.roll-egg-roll-Flickr-Cinnamon Cooper.jpg

Brush the loose end of the egg roll wrapper with egg yolk (that has been lightly beaten). Then, finish rolling the egg roll, pressing the loose end down to seal the egg roll tightly.

Place the egg rolls into the heated oil and fry them until they are golden on all sides, about 1-2 minutes per side. Don’t overcrowd the pan or fryer.fry-egg-roll-Flickr-Audrey Low.jpg
