            Crab egg rolls can be dipped into any number of sauces. There are options such as duck sauce, hot mustard, soy sauce or even sweet and sour. There are different variations that you can utilize for this recipe also. You could make mini egg rolls, and make crab rolls with a slightly sweeter filling. Anyway you try them, they are excellent. One way I like to make these is that instead of Worcestershire sauce, I use soy sauce in a batch once in a while.
