Easy Filipino Egg Rolls

June 22, 2011

Lumpia or Lumpiang are Filipino egg rolls that are thinner and crispier compared to the Chinese version.  When we describe a food as an "egg roll" we are referring to the way the wanton is wrapped, in this case into a roll.  This means that you can put whatever filling you want inside, there are no rules.  These are great party food because they can be made ahead of time and fried at the last minute.  Also, if you make extra, you can freeze them and eat them at a later date.  I like to serve these with sweet chili dipping sauce.
