A serving of Egg Rolls is always served when any dinner party has just been served. It is one of the easiest dishes to prepare, and it makes a good starter dish for a buffet. You can also get the traditional type of Egg Rolls that you find at Chinese, Japanese, or other restaurants. But with the wide variety available in the modern world, these days one can also find different sizes, shapes, and colors of Egg Cups. Here are few things that one should consider while buying a serving of Egg Rolls:
Size: It is important to remember that while serving food in a cup, the size of the serving is determined by the size of the egg. Usually, an egg cup, also known as an egg carton, is a simple plastic tray used for holding and serving boiled eggs inside their shell. To make it easier for the guests, they are always served with a fork. This makes it much easier for them to pick up the pieces from the serving tray. Also, egg cups have a downwardly curved flat base and an upturned forward flat part to hold the egg. Its shape also ensures that the whites don't run into the yolk.
Shape: Most people serve their Egg Rolls in cups. This is because the shape of the egg cups allows for easy pouring of the batter into the tin. You can also use a microwave or a standing blender to mix the ingredients for whipping. Always make sure that the serving is already hot before you add the egg mixture or else it will curdle. It is important to stir your serving so that the yolk does not run into the cream.
Fill: The shape of the cup should be such that it should be able to hold and contain the egg whites snugly. You can use serving spoons, ice cubes or packed fruit in order to fill the rim of the cup. It is also possible to fill the rim with chocolate shavings. Do not forget to use a rubber stopper for the top of the cup as it makes it easier to remove the contents of the cup later on.
