Pork Egg Rolls with Orange Sauce

Baked not Fried

Traditional egg rolls are always deep fried but now that more and more people have become health  conscious, egg rolls are now often baked and not fried. When baking egg rolls, line them up single file in a baking dish. Spray them well with a non-stick cooking spray. Bake until crispy and light golden brown. The inside should be hot as well.

Spicy Sauce

Just remember that baked egg rolls will have a slightly different appearance than deep fried but baked are delicious all the same. Pork Egg Rolls are dipped into a delicious slightly spicy, sweet orange sauce. Made with sweet orange marmalade, Malibu coconut rum, bottled sweet sour sauce and hot chili peppers. Make an alcohol free sauce and replace the Malibu rum with orange juice, coconut milk or water.
