Homemade Egg Rolls

These homemade egg rolls are filled with pork and vegetables, all wrapped up and fried to crispy perfection. The best part to me is the fact that they’re the perfect make-ahead appetizer that you can freeze before you fry for up to 2 months. Plenty of ground pork and veggies make this take-out favorite quicker and tastier than delivery. The egg rolls can be fried or baked; surprisingly, calorie-wise, both are about the same. I know we sure love egg rolls here at Swiss Diamond, and our chefs wanted to share their recipe with you!
