Baked egg rolls

This week I got to explore the lovely city of Charlotte. I was there on work but got to spend my nights exploring the fun town. This was my first time in Charlotte and I was pleasantly surprised by the hometown feel and vintage charm in such a big city. The streets were clean, tree-lined, and filed with friendly people.

Before my departure to Charlotte I binged on these baked egg rolls, and my favorite homemade shrimp fried rice. It was the perfect end to a busy weekend.

Baked egg rolls are just as delicious if not better than fried egg rolls. Fried egg rolls have the tendency to be a bit too greasy for my taste. You can still have all the great flavors of an egg roll without the guilt of the fried version. The egg roll wrapper comes out crispy and golden brown, making it hard to detect the difference. I served my egg rolls with a sweet chili soy dipping sauce. To make this just combine soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, water, and vegetable oil and whisk to combine.  You can also serve them with sweet and sour, soy sauce or one of my favorites, spicy mustard. Yumm!
