Turkey Egg Rolls

Coleslaw mix hurries along the preparation of these deep-fried egg rolls served with sweet-and-sour sauce. "These elegant appetizers are as easy to make as they are to eat," assures Lucille Gendron of Pelham, New Hampshire.

    These are great! Even my picky eater ate them. I didn't have any ginger on hand so I used 2 tablespoons of sesame ginger dressing instead and I also baked them instead of deep frying them.

    This is the first time I have used ground turkey and this is a good recipe to use it in. My daughter made some and I didn't know the difference. I made these last night and my husband didn't know either. It was quick and easy and very good. Using the coleslaw mix saved a lot of time. I will definiely use this recipe again. Yummy!

    I like turkey, but with a lot more veggies. I doubled the recipe for 15 egg roll wrappers, adding a 16 oz pkg of coleslaw. I'm trying to lower my salt intake, so next time I'll omit the onion salt. I don't think I'll miss it.

    These were so easy to make. I cooked the turkey ahead of time and froze it. It only take a minute or two to thaw, so I had these made and ready to cook in less than 5 minutes. I am not a big fan of the turkey so next time I will make with hamburger. I would definately think you could freeze them before you cook them since all the ingredients are safe to freeze anyway.

    I wonder if you could make these up, freeze them and then when you were ready take them out and fry them or even fry first then freeze and re-heat? 10 is just to many for my family of 2 but it would be nice to have them around for a quick side with an asian style meal.

    YUMMY is the best way to describe these!!! I made them as the main entrée for dinner tonight. I'd always heard that egg rolls are difficult to make, but these were very easy. I fried them in a Fry Daddy. I also like how versatile they are - you can easily substitute different meats for the turkey, or simply use more coleslaw mix and cooked egg to make a veggie egg roll. MMMMMM!
