From what I gathered on the internet, the egg rolls you find at Chinese restaurants are evolved from the more delicate spring rolls actually found in China. Spring rolls are so called because they are served in the spring time, and at Chinese New Year. Egg rolls are so called because the wrappers (or "skins") are made with egg; spring rolls wrappers are not. Story goes that Chinese immigrants to the US came up with a spring roll recipe more acceptable to American palates: bigger, coarser, meatier. Egg rolls, like chop suey and General Tso's Chicken are "Chinese" recipes invented by Chinese-Americans and then copied the nation over. This egg roll recipe is a fine rendition of those Chinese restaurant egg rolls.
