Crispy Egg Rolls Reminds You Of The Childhood Memories

How could we miss the delicious egg roll in our daily time? Especially those foodies and kids who like to eat dessert. At home, we usually make egg rolls on our own; we make them with so many eggs and oil, so that the flavor is very good. And in my childhood, Mom makes egg rolls for us as snacks, and that is the best moment we kids have had, it means to say, it’s the flavor of my childhood.

Efficacies of eggs

Protein

Each 100g egg contains 12.7g protein, which means egg is rich in protein with good quality. And so on, two eggs contain protein which equals to the one that 150g fish or meat have. At the same time, eggs are also high in methionine, well, grains and beans are short of this necessary methionine for human body, thus, the combination of the egg and the grains or beans would elevate the bioavailability of the latter two.

Fat

Each 100g egg contains 11.6g fat, mostly gathering in the egg yolk. Further still, the fat in egg is mainly unsaturated fatty acids and in milk form, which is easier to be absorbed by human body.

Other nutrients

Yet eggs contain other important nutrients, such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and phosphorus and so on. And I n particular, the iron in egg yolk is as high as 7mg per 100g. Though high in phosphorus, however, calcium in egg is comparatively deficient, so, the solution is to feed infants with both milk and eggs, therefore the two items are complementary on nutrition. The vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin D, vitamin E and biotin in eggs are also high, particularly in egg yolk, vitamin A, D and E are prone to be absorbed and used by human body when they are dissolved with fat.

Impressions of making egg rolls

To tell it plainly, I have made egg rolls for so many times, but each time I made it differently, sometimes I replace black sesame with white sesame or seaweed or other ingredients. Sometimes I roll it into large ones, and sometimes small ones, but, there is one thing that never changes. It’s the heart and efforts when making the egg rolls, and I think that is the most important thing for chefs or bakers. If your guests have felt the heart of yourself when eating, that is not only the guests would feel like they were satisfied, but also you as the chef or baker, would feel like the happiness and success.
