Egg Roll Bowl

Today is Thursday, and you deserve a nice pat on the back, my friends. For you have traversed the steep mountain known as Wednesday and are now sliding downhill to the wonderful world of this weekend. For your patience and fortitude, I present to you, the latest and greatest from the Sons’ kitchen. Hold on to your plates!

 Egg Roll Bowl

The egg roll in a bowl is now one of our favorite ways to get our Chinese fix. It’s cheap AND it’s easy. Really, really easy. Even better, it’s not horrible for your health. Even serving it over rice is optional. It’s still that good. All those egg roll flavors you love, but amped up a notch by caramelized cabbage and carrots, and without any of those not-so-good-for-you fried parts.

  4. This sounds really wonderful and I am sure beef would be a good replacement for me as well. 😉 Happy FF! 🙂

  5. Brilliant, why work so hard wrapping the filling and then deep frying when you can have a bowl? Our partiers will love this and thank you so much for bringing two dishes this week !

  6. This sounds delicious. You took that delicious filing and didn’t bother with the fried roll. Yum

  7. I always prefer the inside of the eggroll not the fried dough so win win recipe!
