I never heard of deli rolls until I hit the kosher Shabbos scene. It was apparent that everyone I visited knew how to make them. So I figured I'd better learn if I wanted to be really kosher.
I found out later that the dish has no real connection to Judaism, no mystical powers or deep significance. It just seems to have become a Shabbos standard in many homes. For a hint of sweetness, brush the deli roll with duck sauce instead of egg.
