You can use any bottled hot sauce in this recipe, but for an Asian spin, try
a variety from the Asian section of your supermarket. Starting with a cool filling
will give you better results when wrapping the egg rolls. After wrapping, place
egg rolls in a single layer on a plate or cookie sheet; don’t stack them. To reheat
egg rolls, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes
or until sizzling.
