I chose the “Egg Roll Category” for my first recipe entry for the Blogger Challenge using what I had in my freezer and cupboard to illustrate how easy it is to create a delicious recipe in under 40 minutes with the Twin Dragon Asian Wrappers. I used venison sausage from my husbands most recent hunting foray, two large red/yellow bell peppers, a jar of orange marmalade, hoisin and pepper jelly, and herbs I keep in my cupboard to make this yummy appetizer. If you don’t have venison substitute your favorite pork sausage. 

The result: Delicious Venison Egg Rolls with Citrus Hoisin Dipping Sauce
