ASSEMBLE AND BAKE THE EGG ROLLS
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Place an egg roll wrapper on your work surface with one corner pointing at you. Add 2-3 tablespoons of filling into a 2×4-inch rectangle just below the horizontal diagonal line that connects the right and left corners. Take the corner nearest you and fold it over the filling, rolling it away from you so that the filling is completely encased in wrapper. Fold the right and left corners in toward the center, keeping it snug, but not so tight that the wrapper breaks, and continue rolling until you have 2-inches of the last corner left
Paint the edges of the last corner with a bit of egg, then quickly roll up the egg roll. (this will help hold it together). Lightly brush the top of the roll with beaten egg.
Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until they're beginning to brown .. then flip them over and bake another 8-10 minutes.
** For added crispness .. put the egg rolls under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, checking every 20-30 seconds)
Cut the rolls in half on the diagonal, wrap them in lettuce leaves and serve with the ginger sauce.
