Fried Sausage and Rice Eggrolls from Tela Smith
Cook time: 30 minutes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Servings: about 15 egg rolls

What you'll need:

    • 1 pound pork sausage
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped celery
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 cups of Louisiana rice (we used the dirty rice), cooked to package directions
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 2 teaspoons your favorite Cajun Season
    • eggroll wrappers
    • cooking oil
    • 1/4 cup water
    • Chicken broth
    • 1 can of cream of celery

Tela Smith was pretty clear with her instructions and we followed them to a T!

"Brown and crumble sausage in a medium-size skillet over medium heat. Add celery, onion and red pepper when sausage is halfway done. Cook until sausage is no longer pink and veggies begin to look translucent. Drain any grease. In another skillet, add 1 inch of oil over medium-high heat to 350. While oil is heating, in a large heavy pot, bring chicken broth to boil. Add Cajun season and cream of celery. Stir until mixed. Add meat mixture and cooked rice to the soup mix. Stir well and remove from heat. Turn wrappers so that corners are pointing up and down. Spoon the desired amount of mix about halfway down egg-roll wrapper. Dip finger or small brush in water and wet edges of the wrapper. Fold the bottom corner up and over mix. Next, fold 2 sides over, then roll up the rest of the way. You know oil is ready when a piece of wrapper fries instantly when dropped into the oil. Carefully place eggrolls into grease and let turn golden brown. Turn and cook on another side. Drain on paper towels. I like these plain or with a good tiger sauce or brown gravy. Prep time, cook time and servings will vary depending on adeptness in the kitchen and how full you make each roll."
