Thanksgiving is over and done with, but what to do with all that leftover turkey? You could be typical and use it in soups and sandwiches or you could spice up your life a bit and impress your roommates with this Hot Dish original. Turkey egg rolls are a quick, easy and unconventional way to turn your Thanksgiving leftovers into magnificent munchies. I have added some handy cheats so you won’t have to spend all day chopping to get fabulous results for this recipe.

Ingredients:

1 package eggroll wrappers

3 cups chopped leftover turkey meat

2 cups coleslaw mix (you can shred you own carrots and cabbage, this is just faster)

1 onion thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic minced

1 tbsp fresh ginger chopped

1 cup bean sprouts (optional)

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil

Oil for frying

Instructions:

1. Sautee the sliced onion with a splash of oil on medium-high heat for 1 minute. When the onion has started to soften, add the coleslaw mix, garlic and ginger and fry for a few minutes until the whole mixture is soft and reasonably well cooked.

2. Turn off the heat and combine the fried vegetables, chopped turkey, bean sprouts, soy sauce and sesame oil and mix well (add more soy or sesame to fit your taste). Let this mixture cool down a bit so you don’t burn your hands.

3. Lay a wrapper flat on a clean, dry surface and place about ¼ cup of the mixture in the centre. Fold the bottom and top of the wrapper inward over the mixture and roll from one side to the other forming a cylinder. Place the finished roll aside and continue until all of the mixture is used up.

4. In a deep frying pan warm the oil until it forms bubbles on the end of a wooden spoon when inserted. Fry 3-4 rolls at a time, turning often, until the outside is puffy and golden brown. Remove the rolls and let them drain on some paper towel. Continue this until all of your turkey rolls are fried and serve them with your favourite dipping sauce.

Hint: You can buy egg roll wrappers at Fresh Co. , Min’s Chinese Grocery and Goodies on George Downtown. Most super markets carry them too but you will probably have to ask a staff member to help you find them.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

"Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system."
