Thanksgiving Leftovers Egg RollsFor diet reasons a while ago, I told myself I wouldn’t post two fried Fryday recipes back to back (if you missed last week’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Wontons, you should unmiss them). Today, I’m breaking that rule, but for a few choice reasons: (1) I have an incredible Thanksgiving Leftovers Egg Rolls recipe that I just have to share, (2) Turkey Day is soon upon us and we all know diet rules go out the window this time of year, and (3) this is my blog and I can make and break the rules as I please. 

So with that said, let me introduce what I believe to be the absolute best, most appetizing, crowd-pleasing way to repurpose your Thanksgiving leftovers, and egg roll wrappers are all you need to add to the grocery list. Easy and low maintenance just how I like it. 

If you entertain or go to potlucks the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving like we do, this is a great recipe to have in your back pocket, because let’s face it, no matter how aggressively we stuff our faces, we always have turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes left over. Excessive food preparation is one of America’s many charms. Leftovers are great, but no one wants to show up at their friend’s doorstep with a plate of turkey scraps or a bowl of half-eaten mashed potatoes. That wouldn’t be so classy of us. So what is one to do?

Well, one option would be to whip up something entirely new in your tired, post-Black-Friday state. The second is to take the delicious leftovers you already have, roll them into easy-on-the-eyes appetizer egg rolls, perfect for a party, and fry them up in just a matter of minutes. I’ll take the second option, and hope you will too.
