A stack of egg rolls sits in the background.I’m one of those people that when the Nebraska Cornhuskers are playing, I actually want to watch the game. Of course, I like to feed people too. Food to me just makes people feel that you’re glad they’re there. So when I saw that Cloverdale Foods Company had a Zesty Garlic Summer Sausage variety I couldn’t wait to give it a special spin.

This summer sausage would be perfect sliced and combined with a nice cheese tray and crackers. Quick, no fuss, and delicious. However, making these egg rolls bumped everything up into the “you’re very special” category.

Egg Rolls may look like a lot of work, but they’re actually very easy to make in 3 simple steps.

  1. Combine the filling
  2. Roll them up
  3. Fry

Some people said they were the best egg rolls they’ve ever had and another said the idea of using a flavorful summer sausage in the filling was a genius idea. So at my next tailgate gathering, I’ll be confident everyone will love them. I made a simple but delicious wasabi plum sauce that was the perfect contrast. You could just as easily use soy sauce.

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!

Ingredients

Egg Rolls

  • 4 cups Zesty Garlic Summer Sausage
  • 12 oz Classic Coleslaw Mix
  • 1 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 6 green onions thinly sliced white and green parts
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 45 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Canola oil for frying

Plum Wasabi Sauce

  • 1/2 cup plum sauce found with Asian ingredients
  • 1/2 tsp Wasabi prepared - more if you like it spicier
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce

Instructions

  • Combine all of the egg roll ingredients together until most of the liquids have been absorbed.
  • Lay an egg roll wrapper so one point is toward you.  Add 1/4 cup filling across bottom third.  Pull bottom point up and over filling pulling it back towards you snugly without tearing.  pull in side point and roll tightly.  Brush top point with egg wash to seal.  Repeat with all egg rolls.
  • Add enough oil to a large skillet or dutch oven to immerse about 3 egg rolls at a time. Heat to 350°F.  Cook until brown on all sides, approximately 6 minutes.  We found it easiest to hold them down with a pair of tongs.
  • Remove to a drying rack and allow to cool slightly.  They are very hot.
  • Prepare sauce by stirring ingredients together.
