- 1 package of egg roll wrappers-thawed for about 20 minutes (I would buy 2 in case you need them though-they freeze well-you can take extras to work:)) shopping list
- 1/2 package of coleslaw mix (buy by the bagged salads, it's reall called coleslaw mix-it's dry, not wet) shopping list

How to make it
- Soak the noodles in hot tap water until soft, cut with a scissors into smaller pieces.
- Mix 2 eggs, coleslaw mix, meat, noodles, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper in a bowl (use your hands-it's easier)-the mixture should be a little moist-but not sopping wet. Add another egg if you need to.
- Put the other egg in a small bowl (you'll be using this to secure the egg rolls)
- Put a handful of mixture on one wrapper corner and wrap it up. When you finish rolling, dip your finger in the egg and "glue" the seam together. Continue until you have finished.
- I usually fry these in my fry daddy-taste great. IF you want to be brave, you can try putting these on a baking sheet and spray each egg roll with cooking spray (it would even be better if you had them on a rack which rested on the baking sheet) and bake it at 425 until crispy. I've never tried this way, so it definitely could be a disaster, but it might be worth trying! I do know that cooking spray will make the outside crispy "like" frying, so you can try it.
- Go ahead and feed your family, and take the rest to work! People love them! I usually cut them in half with a scissors after they're cooled a little bit, so they become an appetizer. Serve with honey mustard, sweet and sour sauce, or hot chile sauce.
