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


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)

For the Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe click here

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!

I’ve been looking for a good sweet and sour sauce recipe. If I had one, that would be what I mainly eat egg rolls with.

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

What ever kind you want… Italian or regular pork sausage (just don’t use sweet breakfast sausage)


Candace Stanton Slaydon August 23, 2013 at 7:50 pm

What type of sausage do you use? It looks really good and easy.
