Baked egg rolls

Pin It    I've been pretty busy the last few days. I went to a bunch of stores looking for new beer rebates (success!), finally cleaned a freezer and organized everything that needs to be used soon, cooked up a storm, payed the bills, did a mystery shop. But I don't really have anything worth writing about. So I thought I'd share with you a recipe of my baked egg rolls that I was working on today (I'm secretly addicted to egg rolls...shhh!!)

You'll need:

1/2 package egg roll wrappers (or you can double the recipe to use up the whole package)
3 cups shredded cabbage
2 medium size carrots
1 small can chestnuts (I used about 1/2)
1 package Hormel  Canadian bacon, pizza style (or use nicely diced chicken or cooked ground meat, about 0.5 lb)
1 tsp. ground ginger (or use fresh)
3 Tbsp. fresh green onions (I used 1Tbsp. dry. That's just all I had)
2 cloves garlic, minced
4-5 tsp. soy sauce
olive oil
vegetable oil  cooking spray

    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Shred cabbage, grate carrots, nicely dice chestnuts.

   Heat olive oil in a pan on medium heat, add veggies, ginger, green onions and garlic. Mix in soy sauce and cook on medium-low until soft, stirring frequently. While vegetables are cooking, chop bacon very nicely. Take a skillet off the stove and add bacon.

    Lay 1 egg roll on a working surface and add a heap full Tbsp. of a cabbage mix.

Wet the edges  of a wrapper with water for easier seal. Turn two corners inside like the envelope and then roll like a burrito. Repeat with the rest of egg rolls. Lightly coat your baking pan with a cooking spray and put the egg rolls there. Spray lightly over all of the egg rolls.

 Cook for 8-10 min, then flip and cook for another 5-7 min, until slightly brown. Then get your favorite dipping sauce (I used homemade orange marmalade that didn't thicken enough :) and enjoy!


  1. Looks delicious. I love egg rolls.

  2. We LOVE egg rolls!! I didn't know you could bake them, I thought they were fried. I am so going to try this. Thanks for sharing

    1. I love them baked. Cuts so much on grease!

  3. Lena those egg rolls look absolutely "delish" ! Is that REAL Canadian Bacon you are using? LOL

    1. Oh, I wish...No, it's what they call a Canadian bacon here, these slices of ham sausage that is usually used for pizzas.

  4. Even though I wouldn't eat them(I don't like eggs, carrots or cabbage much). They do look really good.

    1. Even though they are called egg rolls, there are no eggs in them :) Or at least, in this particular recipe. And I love cabbage and carrots. In Russia cabbage is used everywhere-in soups, salads (instead of green salad),stuffed. So that's what I ate since I was a kid.
