Homemade Egg Rolls

Do you like egg rolls?? My mom has been making them for as long as I can remember, and they are one of my favorite appetizers. We eat a ton of Asian food in our family and almost always have these egg rolls to go with them because they are the perfect side for any Asian dish.

This particular recipe makes egg rolls that are a little wider than the ones you get at a restaurant, but they are so simple and so addicting, you may be resentful that we are showing you how to make these from home.

As with any of our recipes, they can be modified based on your liking. You can use your favorite veggies and/or meats. In fact, we have a Bacon Avocado & cheese version and even a Cheesecake Factory Copycat Avocado Egg roll version. Both are seriously SO good!!

Here are some other egg roll fillings that would be great:

  • Buffalo Chicken – shredded chicken + buffalo sauce
  • Apple Pie version – Apple filling + cinnamon
  • Breakfast version – eggs, cheese & bacon
  • Southwest version – Corn, Beans, chicken, spices
  • Cherry Cheesecake version – Cherry Pie filling + Cream Cheese
  • Bacon Mac n Cheese – bacon + macaroni

So many different ideas!!

How to Make Egg Rolls

We love how simple this recipe is. We usually us the Nasoya Egg Rolls Wraps that are usually found close to the produce section at the grocery store. Once you have your fillings, it’s just a matter of filling, folding and frying. This is what we do fo our:

  1. Sautee cole slaw in a pan with a little olive oil until it is limp.
  2. Add shredded chicken breast for a few minutes until all mixed. Season with salt & pepper.
  3. Add slaw and chicken mixture to the middle of your egg roll wrapper. Fold up the sides one at a time and for the last fold add a little water so it sticks.
  4. Fry your egg rolls until golden brown. Serve warm.

We love to serve these with our homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce – it’s so good!

One of the main reasons this recipe is so good, is because these egg rolls are fried. And I think we can all agree that fried anything is amazing! But if you are trying to be a little healthier you can also try baking your egg rolls. To do that, lightly coat them with cooking spray and place, seam side down in a greased pan. Bake at 425 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and enjoy!

    Your egg rolls look and sound delicious. We have hosted exchange students from all over the world, we particularly love our Asian students. They are so VERY sweet and bring a rich culture with them. We have hosted from, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, and Vietnam. We have have yet to host from Japan and that is one Country I have always wanted to host from : ) I traveled to the Philippines and worked in an Orphanage out there. So I understand the memories made and the desire to keep them alive. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe with us.

    THANK YOU!! I am going to make these this weekend! :o)

    What sauce do you suggest? Do you have a recipe for that?

      Lil' Luna

      We have used all sorts of sauces but we make these a lot with Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken, and I LOVE keeping some of the Sweet and Sour Sauce on reserve to use as dip for the egg rolls. 🙂

    Yay, i’m so happy to see Chinese New Year celebratory recipes,and this one looks great! Do you deep fry these, or do half one side and half the other in shallow oil?

    Ali @craftyWImama

    Yum, can you send those to my house via overnight mail? Just kidding… kind of.
    Using the cole slaw mix is such a good idea. I’m all for more efficient kitchen time!

      The cole slaw mix works perfect!! Let me know if you ever try this recipe. I think you will LOVE them! 😀

    Amanda

    Can you tell me where you got the wonton wrappers from?

      Lil' Luna

      We got ours at our local Wal-Mart. At our store they are located in the Produce section near the salads and cole slaw. 🙂

    Cactus

    How do you fry them – deep fry or in a pan with just a little oil?

      Lil' Luna

      In a pan with just a little oil. Just cook on each side until lightly golden. 🙂

    Kris

    I have been making these for years, they are a HUGE hit. I do, however, add a bit of sugar and soy sauce to the coleslaw mix as it cooks. I also add a bag of shredded carrots to the coleslaw mix. We have also used gd beef instead of chicken.

      Lil' Luna

      Hmmmm, never have added sugar or soy sauce but may have to next time we make this. Thanks for the suggestion! This recipe is one of our favs. 🙂

        Vonda

        Glad i found your recipe! I will be trying them for today’s USA New Year lol.
