Baked Egg Rolls
are better than take-out and so very easy to make. I had no idea until I decided to make something different as a side dish for my stir fry.
If you enjoy Chinese take-out you probably order egg rolls occasionally. They are delish! but they are always fried and can be a little greasy.
After seeing how easy it was to make and bake the egg rolls after watching Not My Mama’s Meals on the Cooking Channel and thinking this was doable, I added it to my “must make” list.
So today, many months later, was the day I made the baked egg rolls. My first attempt turned out quite good. There are times when I make a new recipe it takes a few tries before I can get it to turn out right, but this was a hit the first try.
I’ve been cooking and baking for many years but my family always wants the same plain old meals. They like what they like and, well you get the picture, ‘boring’ for the cook. Hence the reason why I make and share many side dishes and sweets.
So on to the easy recipe with one package of Asian style coleslaw from the supermarket, soy sauce and sesame oil, chopped ginger, garlic, hot sauce if you like, and a package of wonton wrappers.
Baked Egg Rolls
This recipe was adapted from Not My Mama's Meals on the Cooking Channel. Feel free to add your favorite Asian flavors and more or less spiciness.
- 2-3 cups of Asian Cole Slaw (approx. 8 oz. pkg.)
- 2 TBLS. sesame oil
- 2 TBLS. soy sauce (low sodium is o.k.)
- 1 TBLS. minced fresh ginger
- 1 TBLS. hoisin sauce
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- 2 TBLS. canola oil (you'll need a little more to brush on the egg rolls before baking) (or use any flavorless light oil, I used avocado oil)
- 1 Pkg. of wonton wrappers
- 1/2 cup soy sauce (low sodium is O.K.)
- 1 TBLS. hoisin Sauce
- 1/8 tsp. sriracha
This is a quick and easy recipe. I can hear you say “it can’t be”, but from start to clean up it took less than 1 hour. You can make these for a buffet, a spring garden party, or even for a brunch.
I served the baked egg rolls as a side with chicken stir fry. When my daughter said she loved egg rolls I took some over to her and she took hers to work for lunch.
