Bring the Orient to your Table--Fix Easy Egg Roll Recipes






Looking for mealtime adventure? You could fly to China! Or you could prepare easy egg roll recipes in your own kitchen.

One morning while my wife and I were visiting Bejing, China we found a lady on the street making some kind of a breakfast egg roll. She had a little windowed push-cart with a grill inside. We watched. . .whatever she was making looked good. She poured out a batter, brushed on some egg mixture and added veggies, spice and who knows what. When it was cooked just right she neatly folded it and presented it to us with a happy smile. It took all of about 90 seconds to prepare. How I wish I had that easy egg roll recipe! Delicious. The cost? 25 cents! And it was plenty big enough to satisfy both my wife and me.

I can't promise the same adventure, but these easy egg roll recipes may come close.
