Can I tell you a secret? I love theme nights. I absolutely love making an appetizer, dinner and dessert that all go together, maybe even a special cocktail. I know it’s slightly cheesy, but it makes me happy. Unfortunately, it’s a lot of work, and I feel like I try a little to hard to make things perfect – from planning perfect menus to making everything from scratch. It’s just too much. Sometimes I just need a shortcut, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
These crispy egg rolls with miso ginger aioli are a perfect example of my kind of shortcut. You don’t actually make the egg rolls, but making a simple, homemade dipping sauce makes all the difference.
I purchased these egg rolls at Walmart – in the deli section – for only $2.50 a pack (they also have a 2-pack for only $1.00). That’s super cheap, so they’re a no-brainer addition to any meal. They don’t have any MSG, and they’re naturally low in fat and calories. Not to mention, they’re packed with veggies, so it’s an easy way to sneak them past your kids. We had ours with rotisserie chicken pad thai and made it a “homemade” takeout kind of night.
I wanted to make a less traditional sauce to go with the egg rolls, so I created a miso ginger aioli. It’s takes only 4 ingredients and it’s a light, refreshing sauce that doesn’t overwhelm the flavors in the egg rolls. To cook the egg rolls, I just followed the directions on the package, but I ended up leaving them in the over to get them extra crispy. It’s a personal preference, but I really like mine crispy.
