Egg Roll Recipe Quick ans Easy, make them at home who knew it was so easy.  You will love this recipe and make them again anda again

EGG ROLL RECIPE

You will need :

  • One package of egg roll wrappers ( found in produce section at most stores)
  • Bag of Shredded cabbage or one small head, cut into fine shreds
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 3/4 cups celery chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots ( super fine I use a veggie peeler, to shred them)
  • 1 -2 cup cooked sausage ( I only use one cup but if you like more meat add 2)
  • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 large egg (raw)

IMG_0902Mix above ingredients together in bowl

IMG_0903This is the brand of wrappers my local Walmart sells.

IMG_0905Add filling to the middle of the egg roll wrapper

IMG_0906Fold bottom corner up and pull towards bottom, till snug.

Fold corners in to make it look like a little envelope.  If you rub a little  water on the corners it till make them stick closed.

IMG_0910Roll up, try to keep as tight as you can.

IMG_0911Add a little water to the end to keep the flap shut

IMG_0913Do this with the whole package of wrappers

IMG_0918At this point you can deep fry, pan fry or bake them in the oven.  I pan fried them ( about a minute on each side).  We like our filling to still have a little crunch so we do not cook the veggies ( it cooks enough when pan frying) …but if you want to you can stir fry the veggie filling for about 3 minutes before you add it to the wrappers.

We like to eat ours with Sweet and Sour Sauce , wasabi  paste, and honey.  Hope you enjoy!

IMG_0923You can make these for much less then they cost premade…..and we think they are much better home made as well!

A bag of pre shredded coleslaw mix works perfectly and eliminates a lot of work.

Have you had a problem with Albertsons taking the printed coupons from Cool Savings since they do not have a water mark on them?

These look really good! Thanks for the step by step instructions. Did you use the whole package of wrappers, or how many did the mixture make? Did you figure out the cost per roll? I like the idea or freezing them, since I always by the Costco box to have on hand.

Thanks for posting good pictures. I hate wandering around a store and not knowing what I'm looking for. It was really helpful of you to include a pic that says: here's what the package looks like. Thanks for saving me time.

It's so funny to see this post because I was thinking just yesterday that I needed to search for a good egg roll recipe. Been CRAVING them! and have a head of cabbage I need to use. I might try adding some leftover shredded pork loin.

Those look so yummy! When I make egg rolls, I under cook then slightly, then flash freeze them. They warm up nicely on a rack over a baking sheet in the oven at 375.
