Take a wrapper and place it will a point facing you on a clean surface or parchment paper.  Place a 1/3 cup of filling mixture on the wrapper off center.  Fold top corner over the mixture then fold the 2 side in and roll up.  Seal the edges of the last point with beaten egg white bushed on the edge before finishing the rolling.

Deep fry until light brown turning at least once to the egg roll so the roll browns even. Drain on a baking rack or paper.  Serve with sweet and sour sauce or hot mustard.
