Baked Egg Rolls


 I am a BIG fan of egg rolls. Other types of Asian food...not so much. Unless it's from Panda Express :) On my recent visit to Utah, my sister-in-law showed me how to make some delicious egg rolls. Here is the recipe:

1 lb turkey
beef bouillon paste or cubes
1 bag of coleslaw
1/2 onion, chopped finely
2 eggs
Egg Roll wrappers


I cooked my turkey meat before I made the mixture, but if you're going to fry yours in oil, I guess you can do raw meat. The meat will cook while being fried. However, I like my egg rolls baked, so I cooked the meat beforehand. As your meat is cooking, season it with the beef bouillon. Once your meat is all cooked (no pink) throw it in a big bowl. Add the coleslaw, onion, and 1 egg. Toss together. Grab the egg roll wrappers. Place one in front of you so it looks like a diamond. Place a tablespoon of the inside mixture on the corner closest to you. Start rolling it up. Once you get about halfway up the egg roll wrapper, tuck the sides in. Have the 2nd egg cracked & in a bowl next to you. Dip your finger in the egg and rub it on the top corner of the wrapper. Continue rolling the egg roll up. The egg will help it stick and stay closed. 

Heat the oven to 400. Place the egg rolls on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. I cooked mine for 8 minutes on one side and then flipped them and did another 5 mins. 

Less fattening than frying them up in oil and in my opinion just as tasty!!

Thanks for dropping by!
