Hawaiian Egg Rolls

As an avid cook, I am constantly trying to come up with recipes for leftovers. This one gives a whole new twist to extra ham. My two children think these egg rolls are wonderful, and they freeze well. I thaw as many as needed and bake them. —Terri Wheeler, Vadnais Heights, Minnesota

    I selected this recipe because I had some crushed pineapple I was trying to use. Great spin on traditional egg rolls and will be making this one again.

    These are so much fun. I make large batches because they disappear so fast. My family really loves canned ham in this, more authentic. So worth the effort!

    This was the first time ever made egg rolls and took them to a New Years party and they were a BIG hit ! I served the with sweat & sour sauce and a hot mustard sauce but most people were eating them with no sauce at all ! Best all , They were easy too make ! Not bad for a guy doing this !

    I made these egg rolls for a party I threw for my son. People loved them. They went kind of fast. Make sure to squeeze the pineapples as dry as possible or they will be too sweet/wet.
