Amazing Egg Rolls

Amazing Egg Rolls - AA

When I was little, my Mom had a friend who shared her family’s Chinese recipes. My favorite was the egg rolls – they were so much better than the ones in restaurants. I only like homemade ones now and so does my family. They require a little bit of work but the end product is fantastic!!

2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
