Chinese Egg Rolls - Mrs Kwan's Quick Snack
Written by Lorna C

Over the years when my children have wanted a snack, I have cooked these. They are ready in 35 minutes and always vanish quickly. Chinese Egg Rolls – Mrs Kwan’s Quick Snack, an elderly neighbour many years ago baked these for me once and I was hooked. Simple ingredients such as pork, ginger, spring onions, egg and coleslaw create a superb snack, starter, appetizer and side dish. Now that’s multi tasking. Obviously take away the pork and you have a lovely vegetarian recipe. Also, I have used left over chicken, beef and lamb in place of the pork.
