Egg Roll With It
Crunchy on the outside with a delicious filling on the inside, egg rolls are a fried Chinese specialty as synonymous with Chinese food as breadsticks are with Italian food. Stuffed with a mixture of meats and diced vegetables, common ingredients include pork, chicken, shrimp, shredded cabbage, carrots, and bean sprouts. The roll is then deep fried to flaky, crispy perfection!
While classic Chinese egg rolls are dang delicious, stuff it with your own favorites to enter a whole new wonderland of “YUM!”
How To Wrap An Egg Roll
Egg Rolls That Rock!
Not only is this recipe dang-delicious for its stuffing combo of crispy shrimp, Sriracha mayo, slaw, and pepper jack cheese, it’s also ready in no-time! Just defrost your pre-cooked shrimp, saute them with cornstarch (if frying your egg rolls) and assemble. We love the addition of pepper jack cheese to these bang bang shrimp – it adds a unique kick of its own that goes great with the Sriracha spice!
Burgers may be great, but egg rolls have them beat!

It’s hard to go wrong when buffalo chicken is involved.

Andouille sausage makes everything it touches better, and these egg rolls are no exception. This recipe holds nothing back when it comes to Cajun authenticity, calling for shrimp, bell pepper, jalapeño, creole seasoning, old bay and smoked paprika. This all gives these egg rolls a unique heat and smokiness that pairs perfectly with a side of cool garlic aioli!
Whether you make it yourself, use a pre-made or pick some up from our Wood Smoked Bar-B-Que, these pulled pork rolls are a delight. We love collard greens, and because we mix our bbq meats and collard greens together in the same bite already, it is exciting to see this recipe do that for us! Filled with sweet pulled pork, salty collard greens and mild cream cheese, these crunchy egg rolls are a true adventure of taste and texture we can’t wait to try for the next movie night-in!
Essentially what a jalapeño lover’s dreams are made of, the first step of this recipe is to roast off whole cored jalapeños. This means the most complex flavor possible AND a delicate filling! Once roasted, the soft jalapeños are stuffed with a cream and cheddar cheese mixture before being rolled up and sealed in a wonton wrapper. Fry over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes per side and serve with a cool sauce like ranch or sweet sauce like ketchup!
Not only can these egg rolls be made ahead of time, they can also be frozen for when you’re ready to use ‘em. This makes them the perfect appetizer for entertaining or meal prep. You can make your own or use leftover steak or pre-sliced roast beef, really any thin-sliced cooked beef will do. Complete with caramelized peppers and onions and provolone, this is one way to enjoy Philly cheesesteak that is a must-try!

Chili Egg Rolls 🙌 💃 🕺
This comfort food combines hearty chili with cheddar cheese, onion and jalapeño wrapped in an egg roll wrapper then fried to perfection. If the chili is very runny, we would recommend draining some of the fluid or adding cooked rice or breadcrumbs to thicken it up before wrapping. Serve with sour cream or guacamole and you are in for a delightful appetizer, lunch or dinner.

Baked in the oven for just 15-17 minutes, they are served with a homemade avocado cilantro ranch dip made with avocado and greek yogurt. Better than tacos? You be the judge!
Egg Roll Tips:
Egg rolls can be pan-fried, deep-fried, baked, steamed, even boiled, but for a crunchy wrapper, pan-frying is the way to go.
Don’t over-stuff. You want the filling completely sealed in the wonton wrapper or else it will leak out when cooking.
Have a cup of water or beaten egg on the side of your egg roll assembly line to moisten the edges of the wrapper to create the seal.
Make sure your stuffing isn’t too wet or saucy. Too much moisture can cause wrappers to tear. You can thicken anything up with a little rice, meat or veggies.
Keep wonton wrappers moist while assembling by covering wrappers with a damp paper towel.
They don’t have to be savory. You can egg roll-up your favorite sweet ingredients too!
