Egg Rolls

Egg rolls – deep-fried cylinders of wheat flour skin wrapped around cabbage, pork, and/or other fillings, are a stock item in Chinese-American restaurants. They often are found on other Asian-themed restaurants as well. The egg-roll template lends itself to all manner of American regional fancy. There are egg rolls filled with boudin sausage in Cajun country, with pulled pork and/or pimento cheese in much of the South, with beef, beans, and jack cheese in the Southwest, and with shrimp and papaya along the Gulf Coast. In Key West, at Fritas Cuban Burger Cafe, the item listed as a Cuban Cigar is actually an egg roll filled with all the ingredients common to a Cuban sandwich. In Augusta, Georgia, at a Caribbean restaurant called Jackie M’s and Son, egg rolls can be had stuffed with jerk chicken, accompanied by cucumber dipping sauce.
