Egg Rolls

When I was a kid we often had oriental night at my Grannies house. The adults went to town preparing all sorts of dishes from scratch, egg rolls being one of them. I loved helping roll them up tight, like an envelope before they were fried. My kids enjoy doing that now too. They are good, very good in fact, especially when dunked in a little sweet and sour sauce. This is the recipie we've used for generations.

1 C. Chopped Shrimp(optional)
1/2 lb ground sausage/pork
2 C. Chopped Cabbage
1 small can shredded bamboo shoots
2 small cans Water Chestnuts - diced
1/2 bunch Green onions Chopped
2 Carrots grated

1 Egg beaten
2 Tbsp. Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tsp. Ginger
2 Cloves Garlic chopped
1 Package Egg Roll Wrappers

Fry sausage, garlic and ginger until cooked, then drain. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Roll 1-2 Tbsp of mixture inside each egg roll wrapper, seal according to package directions. Deep fry until golden brown. Serve with Sweet and Sour Sauce.
