"To save time i brown 1 pkg Jimmy Dean pork Sausage ( prefer the sage kind), drain fat off. In separate pot, pour in a bag of shredded cabbage mix ( it has all the other veggies in it), add your garlic, oil soy sauce, sugar and a 1/2 cup water. Steam/cook on med/low heat. Drain off all excess liquid, add your sausage, mix real good and spoon by large tablespoon on the eggrolls. For my personal taste, i add about a 1/4 c of sweet pepper sauce to the mix, it gives it a little kick and tastes great. I use the whole 20 pkg eggrolls for the above mixture. I place about 4-5 in a freezer bag to snack on and moore for company in another bag. The freeze well."

"Excellent recipe. I love making homemade egg rolls, time consuming but worth it. One change I made was that 1/3 cup of filling in each egg roll was too much so I lowered it to 1/4 cup."
