My family love eggrolls. This is a fun thing to make these as a family as we are watching the Super Bowl or playoff games. I turn mine into eggroll bowls by eating without the wrappers and using GF noodles or rice.
I also love to make the sauce and use it on top of my egg roll bowls. Gluten Free for you and me!

Cook noodles according to directions. Drain, then rinse in cool water. While still in strainer, cut with a sharp knife into about 1 inch pieces. (Like cutting spaghetti for a child). Combine raw pork or turkey, soy sauce, oyster sauce and garlic. Brown the meat in oil. In a large bowl mix all the filling ingredients. Place approx. 2 Tablespoons of the mixture on the corner of 1 egg roll skin. Roll up following the directions on the egg roll package. Use the egg white on the edge of the egg roll skin to seal. Deep fry until golden brown. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce.
*Oyster sauce and Somen Noodles and egg roll wrappers are found in the oriental cooking section of most grocery stores.
** To make Gluten Free Egg Roll bowls or Keto leave out the noodles and the egg yolk and the wrappers and just eat the filling in a bowl. Use Gluten Free Soy Sauce and Oyster Sauce.
