#EdenCooks - Homemade Eggrolls - Mon June 18, 8pm EST

Antipova Antipova
Welcome to the June Meeting of Eden Cooks! Eden Cooks is a cooking club for any interested members of the Eden community. We will meet on the forum to discuss everything from tips and pointers for less well-equipped kitchens, explanations of cooking terms, and important techniques. There will be a featured recipe each meeting, with pictures taken as I prepare it for you. I will cover some ingredient substitutions to make each recipe more friendly to people with dietary restrictions.

The homemade eggrolls we'll be making in this month's meeting are 100% by audience request, so I hope this meeting will be really popular! The recipe can be customized bit by bit---if you do it from scratch plan on inviting a bunch of friends over to help with the manual labor. An eggroll making party is a lot of fun, and eating them is even better.

We made slippery pork with garlic and butter shrimp and stir fried cloud ear mushroom bean sprout eggrolls, and I'll show exactly how to make our version, but any variation you can think of will work just as well!

I had never been a very big fan of eggrolls, and I thought going in to this that, hey, at least everyone on Eden would enjoy it, even if I didn't. But it turns out these were absolutely delicious, and even worth cleaning up the oil after frying them. I am going to add these to my regular repertoire, even if I do usually make it a social event!


During the meeting, two $25 gift cards to EF will be awarded to the winner of a trivia contest from information that I will provide during the meeting, and to the first person to guess a lesser-known kitchen implement from pictures I'll show.

The meeting will take place on the EdenFantasys forum in this very thread at 8 pm EST on Monday, June 18th. I'm really excited to share how to make these super delicious appetizers with you all, so I can't wait to see you there!

Well the meeting is free.... And you can always learn now and make it later.

Plus you can stuff them with literally anything you have on hand, even if that's only veggies.

Hooray, Sexyfun and Petite Valentine and Beck! Can't wait to see you all there

And yes, this is THIS MONDAY on June 18th

That was my initial reaction when everyone was like "eggrolls! Eggrolls!" but I just used about 3 cups of oil in a deep skillet, and flipped them over. The kitchen still smelled like oil, of course, but it wasn't as bad as I had thought it would be.

This sounds great! I know how to make egg rolls but hopefully I can make it here and possibly learn something I didn't know!

What do you do with the oil afterward?

Have you ever tried the Filipino eggrolls called Lumpia? I've had some that used raisins as one of the ingredients and it tasted really good, but that was a very long time ago.

Correct, the title and the google calendar are correct, the last paragraph is not til Stormy fixes it.

Our work schedules are just so conflicting.

Can't wait to see everybody there, I'm glad you're all excited!


Rossie, I have not had those, but they sound like they deserve some research!

Ya, I know. At least we can come back and read though. One of the main reasons I like these meetings being in the forum format versus a chat type deal.
