Easy Egg Rolls (Two Cooking Methods)

“I'm always looking for something different and fun. A good recipe to use up leftover meats, too. Adapted from Southern Living, but added a baking method to reduce calories and make healthier. The fried method is so much tastier, but the baking method is a good pinch hitter for those counting calories...which I am. ;-) See this complimentary dipping sauce...Sweet and Sour Cranberry Dipping Sauce
