I am never partial to frozen egg rolls or any type of frozen Chinese food because for the price that you pay to buy it from a supermarket, I find it cheaper to just buy from the local take-out place. The price is usually similar, and quality is much better.
The exception to this is the “Imperial Garden Egg Rolls” from JYC Foods out of Houston, Texas that creates this line of delicious egg rolls. The taste is exceptional and the fillings are very high quality. The flavors come in Lobster, Shrimp, Chicken, Pork and Vegetable but I am most partial to both the Shrimp and Chicken.
With both the Shrimp and the Chicken, the filling includes a nice portion of the main protein, cabbage, carrots, onions and spices. Larger than most restaurant egg rolls; the project can be taken from frozen to cooking in about twenty minutes in a 400-degree F oven.
My cooking advice for this product is to be sure that the oven has been properly heated in advance and to follow the cooking procedure of flipping the egg roll over for each ten-minute interval. For extra crispness, my advice is to leave them in the oven after you shut the oven off for an extra three minutes. It gives the wrapper an extra crunchiness.
The flavor is wonderful in that I find that you can really taste the main protein of each egg roll and the spices do a nice job enhancing the combination of all the ingredients. They are well spiced and there is a nice crunch to the outside wrapper. It is also oven-baked instead of deep fried which saves on the calories. It is nice addition to a meal of soups or as a quick snack after work or school.
What I also like about the product is that each individual egg roll has a packet of Duck Sauce included inside the wrapper which is nice when you do not have a jar of it in the house. It makes the eating experience even better.
The company also has a line of potstickers (dumplings), Spring Rolls and Edamame (beans) that I am sure of the same quality.
