    HI can these be cooked in the oven with a spray of oil?
    I really don’t like to fry anything, my stomach cant take the oils.

      Hi Deanna,

      Absolutely 🙂 You can spray or brush the egg rolls with oil and place them on a “rack – on – a – cookie – sheet” and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, flipping them about half way though. It may take more or less time depending on your oven (they’re all different). You’re looking for a golden brown color 🙂

      Note: The reason for the rack is to prevent them from sticking.

      Hope that helps and Happy Cooking!

      Hi Karen,

      You can but it comes with a warning. I’m assuming you’re talking about spring roll wrappers, the “see through kind”.

      If you were to just roll up the filling in that type of wrapper and then try to fry them you’ll have an aweful mess. The wraps will basically melt like plastic.

      However, you can briefly dip the wraps in warm water. Just long enough to be pliable, then add your filling and roll them up (no need for the egg wash).

      Note: They will not brown up like traditional egg rolls, they’ll just get a little darker.

      Trick: To get them to be a little more golden brown you can add a little bit of sugar to the warm water before you dip the wraps, this will help with browning.

      Watch them carefully while frying. I recommend keeping a “spider” on hand, that’s like a wire mesh spoon. Or a slotted spoon. This is just in case any of them break open on you. Do not over cook, when they look done, they are done.

      I hope this helps but as I said this type of wrapper comes with a warning 🙂

      Good luck and Happy Cooking!
