Spring Rolls (My Mother's Recipe) image

We like to try different spring roll recipes. Each one is a little unique. Darla's mom's version of spring rolls is delicious. Frying the tasty filling in really thin lumpia wrappers gives these rolls a nice crunch with every bite. Dip in your favorite sauce (we opted for sweet chili) and you have a perfect appetizer or snack.

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 lb ground pork or ground chicken
1/2 c chopped onions
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
4 egg yolks, save white for egg wash
1-1/2 c grated or shredded carrots
3 c bean sprouts, must be dry
2-1/2 oz bean threads, also call rice noodles

1 pkg Filipino lumpia wrappers


  • 1. Soak the bean threads in water for 1 hour. Drain well. Cut threads into 4 inches pieces. Set aside.
