Southwestern Egg Rolls
“I brought these to a church potluck and everybody loved them,” writes Jacqueline Bower from Washington, Iowa. “The recipe makes a large amount, but there were no leftovers!” For those looking to trim calories, she suggests using a 50%-less-fat sausage and frying in canola oil.
JACQUELINE’S TIP: These egg rolls also freeze well. They can be made ahead and fried frozen for quick convenience.
