Sausage, black-eyed peas and turnip greens give these unique egg rolls a decidedly Southern accent. When I bring them to a party, I always come home with an empty plate. —Holly Jones, Kennesaw, Georgia

  1. In a small bowl, mix the sauce ingredients until blended. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
  2. For egg rolls, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, green onions, soy sauce and garlic powder until blended; stir in turnip greens, cheese, black-eyed peas and sausage.
  4. With one corner of an egg roll wrapper facing you, place 3 tablespoons filling just below center of wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; moisten remaining wrapper edges with water. Fold side corners toward center over filling. Roll egg roll up tightly, pressing at tip to seal. Repeat.
  5. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls, a few at a time, 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce. Yield: 2 dozen (2-1/3 cups sauce).
