Baked Eggrolls

Egg_RollsOur final E recipe is for Baked Eggrolls.  I haven't made Eggrolls in so  long, that TJ was convinced there should be eggs in them.  He could not be reasoned with.  Either way, this recipe is wonderful!

Baked Eggrolls Recipe

(Recipe courtesy of Keep the Beat™, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute)

  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil (optional)
  • 2 tsp. ginger, minced (or ½ tsp dried)
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced (about 2 cloves)
  • 4 C cabbage (Napa or Chinese), rinsed and shredded
  • 2 C carrots, peeled and sliced thinly on an angle (julienned)
  • 2 C grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips (about
    4 small breasts) (Leftover Friendly)
  • 1 tsp. lite soy sauce
  • 8 Phyllo dough sheets
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 ºF.
2. Heat vegetable and sesame oils in a large wok or sauté pan over medium heat.
3. Add ginger and garlic. Stir fry quickly, about 30-45 seconds.
4. Add cabbage and carrots. Continue stir frying until the cabbage is soft, about 2-3 minutes.
5. Add chicken and soy sauce. Toss well and heat through.
6. Remove mixture from the pan, and place in a large colander to drain.
7. To assemble eggrolls, cover layers of phyllo with a damp cloth to stay moist. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a cutting board. Spray it lightly with cooking spray. Top with another layer of phyllo dough, and spray again. Repeat for a total of four layers. Prepare a second stack with the remaining four layers.
8. Cut layered dough into four squares. Divide filling evenly (about 1 cup portions) into the center of each stack of squares.
Fold one corner of the square into the middle (on top of the filling). Fold in the two sides, and roll the eggroll over so the folded parts are on the bottom.
9. Place the rolls on a nonstick baking sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until brown and crisp and chicken is reheated. Serve immediately.

YUMMY!! I love egg rolls, but I always fry them! This looks delicious and healthy. I have experienced that eggrolls freeze really well too. I always make a big batch and freeze some to take out and use on those days when you dont feel like cooking! Hope you are having a good week! Thanks for sharing all your wonderdul ideas :)

HI I am Australian and am not sure what Phyllo pasrty is - we have something called filo (or puff) pastry - perhaps that is the same. It comes in frozen sheets from supermarket, but i can't imagine stacking 4 on top of each other - too thick - perhaps ours are already layered ready to use. Any ideas anyone??

Yes Leah! it is the same!!

Hi Leah, I'm also an Aussie. There are lots of supermarket pastries sold here. Filo pastry and puff pastry are different. Filo is available in the cooler fridges with things like ready made cookie dough, stirfry noodles, pizza dought etc, at our woolies they have them in roughly the same place as the packaged hams and yoghurts. Filo is in a long rectangular box not flat pack squares like puff pastry etc.
