1 Cabbage Chopped (Napa or Regular)
1 Cup Bean Sprouts
1/2 Cup Chopped Carrots
1/2 Cup Chopped Celery
1 Pack of Ground Sausage
1 Egg Yolk
Vegetable Oil (enough to fill a small pot ~1/3 full)

Seasoned Salt (Buy or Mix Below)
1/4 cup Salt
4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground red pepper

1. Combine cabbage, bean sprouts, carrots, and celery in a Wok or large frying pan and cook down until soft at medium-high heat. (about 15-20 minutes) If there is a lot of liquid at bottom, carefully drain so only a small amount is left.
2. While vegetables are cooking, brown sausage in small frying pan.
3. Combine vegetables and sausage and season with ginger, soy sauce, and seasoned salt to taste.
4. On a dry surface, place the wonton wrapper so that it looks like a diamond in front of you.
5. Place a small amount of the mixture in the middle of the wrapper (~1/3 cup for egg rolll wrappers/ ~1/8 cup for wonton wrappers).

8. Roll the wrapper and seal with egg yolk.
9. Heat oil in pot for about 5 minutes on medium heat.
10. Add egg rolls to oil and cook until golden brown,

Personal Notes:
Wonton wrappers are great for appetizers but take a longer time and more skill to roll so if it is your first time I recommend using egg roll wrappers. Also, if you have extra egg rolls they freeze very well! Just throw them in a Ziploc and pull them out as wanted. Microwave 1-2 mins.
