I love Asian food. I try to cook it at least once a week. Occasionally we’ll order eggrolls or wontons to eat with our meal but more often then not I’ll buy some frozen eggrolls and heat them up with our dinner. The ones we buy are pretty good and they really crisp up in the oven.
The only problem with the ones I buy is that there is no dipping sauce including in the box. I usually stock up on sauce when we get take out but at least once a month we go without any dipping sauce. When I saw this sweet and spicy dipping sauce on Sarah’s blog I was thrilled because I almost always have these ingredients in my pantry.
The sauce is perfect for eggrolls. It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and tastes great with Asian food. It’s also easy to whip up on the fly whenever I discover I’m out of sauce.
