Not yo momma's eggroll recipe!
Well, O.K. so it is MY momma's eggroll recipe, but who wants to dwell on petty details, huh?
I am about to blow your mind with a recipe for the best eggrolls your taste buds will ever savor. No lie. I don't want to keep y'all waiting, so I'll just get started with the recipe:
makes 9-10 eggrolls
-1/2 lb. bulk sausage
-2 cups broccoli slaw
-1 tbsp. soy sauce
-1 tsp. cornstarch
-1/4 tsp. packed brown sugar
-Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
-In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, cornstarch and brown sugar. Set aside.
-In a skillet, brown the bulk sausage, then add the broccoli slaw. Cook over med-high heat, stirring frequently, for about three minutes, or until the veggies are softened.
-Stir in the Stir in the sauce mixture and cook a minute or two longer, or until the sauce has thickened.
-To fill the eggroll wrappers, make a "filling station" with a cutting board, a bowl of water, and the meat and veggie mixture. Take one wrapper and set it in front of you like a diamond. Wet your finger in the bowl of water, and swipe it across the top corner of the wrapper, dampening it.
-Put a spoonful of the filling in the middle of the wrapper.
-Pull the bottom corner(the corner closest to you) up towards the top corner, fold the side corners into the middle, then (carefully) roll the eggroll towards the top corner, ending when the wet corner touches a dry part of the wrapper. The water acts like glue and will help keep the "roll" shape.
-Place each eggroll on your baking sheet that you sprayed and set aside earlier. Then take the cooking spray again and spray the tops of the eggrolls with a light, even coating.
-Put the tray full of eggrolls in the oven, preset at 400 degrees, and bake for 13 minutes.
-Take them out and let them cool for about 5 minutes.
-Just plop your eggrolls next to a scoop of rice, eat, and thank me later!
And the best part about this recipe, a serving(three eggrolls) is less than 500 calories, so it's nutritious, figure-friendly, and freaking amazing!
