Baked Egg Rolls

Pork Egg Rolls

My family loves Chinese food, and who doesn’t love a good egg roll? The only thing I’m not a fan of is that they are fried and greasy. So…I decided to try my hand at baked egg rolls to see how they would taste. Delicious! You will not even miss the fat or clogged arteries!!!

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 30min; Cook Time – 18-20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 package egg roll wrappers

1 lb. ground pork sausage

4 scallions, chopped

2 zucchini, shredded

Stir Fry Sauce (just use your favorites)

1 egg

Soy Sauce for dipping

Preparing Baked Egg Rolls:

Brown pork in medium skillet until no longer pink. Add scallions and zucchini. Saute for 3 minutes. Add stir fry sauce and mix well. Remove from heat and let cool. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Crack and beat the egg in a small bowl.  Take an egg roll wrapper and place it on a work surface on the diagonal. Place about a tablespoon of mixture on the bottom third of the wrapper. Brush with the beaten to moisten slightly. Roll from the bottom, making sure you pinch in the sides as you roll.  Place on a pan and repeat with remaining ingredients. Brush the outside with the egg as well.

Bake for 18-20 minutes (oven temperatures and times will vary). Turn at 9-10 minutes for even cooking. Dip in your favorite soy sauce.

Variations:

Put whatever kind of filling in here that you like. Try this chicken filling that I have used for lettuce wraps if you don’t want to use pork.

 

Feta Cheese Rolls

Feta Cheese Roll

An aunt of mine found a similar recipe for feta cheese rolls years ago in the Atlanta Journal. I’ve always been afraid to work with egg roll wrappers because I thought it was difficult. If I had known how easy it was, I would have made this years ago!! 

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 20 min; Cook Time – 5 min.

Ingredients:

1 egg plus one egg yolk

1 egg white

1 1/2 c. Feta cheese, crumbled

1/4 c. flat leaf parsley (if desired)

10 egg roll wrappers, cut into triangles

fresh herbs, if desired

Olive oil for frying

Preparing Feta Cheese Rolls:

Using a fork, beat together the egg and egg yolk. Mix in the crumbled feta and parsley. 

In a separate bowl, place the egg white. Beat gently. Get out a pastry brush (OXO Good Grips Silicone Basting & Pastry Brush – Small
).

Place a triangle of the egg roll wrapper on your work surface with the long part toward you. Place about 1 T. of the cheese mixture on the wrapper toward the edge.

Gently roll the wrapper in a log form until the cheese is covered. Gently tuck the left side under, followed by the right side.

Once both sides are tucked in, there should be a bit of a triangle left. Brush that with the egg white and finish rolling the wrapper.

Set aside and finish the rest of the wrappers. 

In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Using a pair of tongs, add the feta cheese rolls.
