You may be thinking, "Wait, I thought this was a beyond egg rolls piece?" Well, it is. But also, you don't know much about what's beneath that sweet & sour-smothered layer of fried dough. Your typical Chinese-American takeout egg roll is mostly cabbage, flecked with bits of roast pork and carrots. Egg rolls are still technically spring rolls (perhaps the first spring roll you ever tasted), but the wrapper dough is made with wheat and eggs, producing a thicker, fatter roll. A more traditional (and tastier) version would also have bamboo shoots, minced shrimp, and water chestnuts. Egg rolls are usually served with sweet & sour sauce (or duck sauce) and hot mustard.
