I love these egg rolls and they are always a big hit. You can make them ahead of time and just pop them in the oven just when your guests arrive. Any kind of ground meat will do.

Last Friday the sandwich of the night was a Banh Mi Pork Meatball Sandwich. Banh Mi is a Vietnamese street food staple. It’s on a classic french baguette, with a creamy spicy siracha sauce, savory pork meatballs and a crunchy sweet & spicy slaw made with carrots and daikon radish. All the flavors come together in a totally delicious sandwich!
