My sister introduced me to homemade egg rolls with this recipe. It's more time consuming than other recipes I make, but worth it. If you've got "helpers" to help roll them, that saves a lot of time. Usually after we've stir-fried all the ingredients, we put the bowl in the middle of the table, give everybody a spoon, and let everyone roll their own. Kids love it!
