Easy Egg Rolls

Easy Egg Rolls
I learned to make these about 30 years ago when working as an ER nurse. These are made with Jimmy Dean Hot pork sausage, but you can use shrimp, chicken, ground beef, or make them vegetarian. I even made you a video to demonstrate rolling them. Here is what I did:

1 lb hot ground sausage
2 T soy sauce (low sodium)
1 pkg tricolor slaw
1 can water chestnuts
2 stalks celery
1 T fresh ginger
1/2 onion
1 pkg egg roll wrappers
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Brown sausage with soy sauce, pepper and cayenne pepper Drain on paper towels, cool and pulse in food processor until finely ground but not mushy. Set aside.
Process together slaw, onion, ginger, and water chestnuts. Pulse until fine consistency.
Mix meat and sausage together in a large bowl.
Place spoonful of mixture into an egg roll wrapper and fold envelope style. Try not to wrap too loosely or they won’t cook as well. By the way, they reheat well in an air fryer and won’t be all greasy as if you deep fry.

This is very easy to do. Just make sure to fold so that the ingredients don’t leak out while cooking.
