Oven Baked Spring Rolls Recipe ~The Kitchen Witch~ Take Out Classics

As recipes go, the one I'm about to share is one of my best. Not only is this dish insanely delicious, you can prepare it in a variety of different ways: Baked in spring roll wrappers like I've done today, deep fried, or tucked into lettuce for the most delectable lettuce wraps this side of, well, anywhere.

But today we're going to bake them - and at a savings of about 150 calories per roll, (these weigh in at 50 calories per) this is my favourite way to prepare them.
