BJ Brewhouse Avocado Egg rolls

Friend: Want to join us for a birthday dinner tonight?
Me: Sure! BJ brewhouse?
(and this is where I realize that it is probably rude to suggest a dinner place to someone else for THEIR birthday)
Luckily, they wanted to try something new. And I sure do LOVE BJ's. We go probably ONCE a year and I wish I could go once a month. Why? Mostly for the Avocado Egg Rolls. And then I found this...
... now I can get fat and die happy

The original recipe is found here but I made a few changes per the reviews

  9. 9 Brush remaining corners and edges of the wrapper with egg, roll up from side to side, fold top corner over all and press to seal.
  10. 10 Repeat with remaining wrappers.
