Baked Shrimp & Chicken Egg Roll Recipe

When my son requested an Asian themed meal for his birthday dinner, I knew egg rolls had to be on the menu. My mom used to make egg rolls for my birthday dinner, and I still remember rolling those suckers up while sneaking bites of the filling. She hand shredded the cabbage, and fried the egg rolls in a wok. I take short cuts anywhere I can, so I don’t hand shred anything! I also try to bake instead of fry. I really wasn’t sure the baked would hold up to the fried wrappers, but let me tell you…they were crispy and delicious! Come on in, and I’ll share the recipe with you. I’ll even add a quick version of the homemade sweet & sour sauce, to boot!

Another great thing about baking is your job is done once they go into the oven. No need to stand over a frying pan.
