Armed with some egg roll wrappers, I went to town over the past month. I bought the egg roll wrappers to make my Mother's idea for a Polish quick and easy appetizer. Sauer kraut rolled up in an egg roll and fried. I served it with duck sauce. I have to tell you that when that sour taste hits the sweet taste of the sauce there is quite and explosion in your mouth. So delicious. I could have these over and over again.
Kickin' Kraut Rolls
Recipe/idea courtesy of Mom
3 cans of sauer kraut
1 package of egg roll wrappers
duck sauce for dipping (next time I think I will concoct some sweet beet dipping sauce to make them even more Polish like)
Fry sauer kraut down until most of the moisture has been released and kraut is golden. Roll cooled kraut in egg rolls and fry or bake (I have done both). Serve warm with dip. Enjoy.
