Avocado Egg Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce

We all have a favorite restaurant that we love. In particular, we have a favorite appetizer or appetizers...because sometimes two is better than one! We crave them when we go out to eat or its basically our go to snack to pair with our beer or cocktail...Any of this ring a bell? Sometimes, this is my husband and I!

BJs Brewhouse is one our favorites. Their avocado egg rolls are usually a must to order, along with some boneless wings. I am here to tell you that I have have re-created the avocado egg roll recipe. However, I changed up the sauce by making my Thai sweet and spicy sauce and it works! The sweet and spice compliments the crunchy exterior and creamy interior thats coming from the avocados.

These are baked, not fried. So, it's a little lighter and easier to clean up.

Make these for dinner as an appetizer or for a large crowd on game day! They will be a hit!
