Elk and chanterelle mushrooms are a pairing that we love during the autumn months out West.
We also love egg rolls here at JHBMCo., so we came up with this easy-to-follow recipe for Elk & Chanterelle Mushroom Egg Rolls that will make enough to feed a crowd or can easily be frozen and enjoyed later!
We know wild chanterelle mushrooms may not be easily obtained in your area, so we recommend substituting fresh shiitake, oyster, or button mushrooms that can be found at most supermarkets!
