Reviews for Hawaiian Egg Rolls
"This was the first time ever made egg rolls and took them to a New Years party and they were a BIG hit ! I served the with sweat & sour sauce and a hot mustard sauce but most people were eating them with no sauce at all ! Best all , They were easy too make ! Not bad for a guy doing this !"
"I made these egg rolls for a party I threw for my son. People loved them. They went kind of fast. Make sure to squeeze the pineapples as dry as possible or they will be too sweet/wet."
