Egg roll recipe in a bowl

If you haven’t already noticed, I’m a HUGE fan of egg rolls! They are so much fun and I love all the sauces and flavor combinations you can create.

Egg roll in a bowl Ingredients

Fresh ingredients always taste better, which is why this recipe is packed with dressings and fresh vegetables. You can buy some things pre-cut, which will speed up your prep time! As you get more familiar with this dish, start changing the ingredients to play with the flavor profile! See the recipe card at the bottom of the post for exact measurements.

  • Sesame oil: Sesame oil adds that traditional flavor you love to your egg roll and is a must in this dish!
  • Onion: I recommend chopping them for this recipe so the flavor spreads evenly throughout the meal.
  • Garlic: The garlic adds so much flavor and takes this recipe to the next level!
  • fresh gingerGarlic: Fresh garlic is always the tastiest, but you can use powder if you have a pinch.
  • free range turkey: I used 1 pound of raw ground turkey in this recipe. If you don’t like turkey, you can use ground beef or pork instead!
  • Soy sauce: I added soy sauce at the end as a final sauce for this dish. It was incredible!
  • Prepared with coleslaw (mixture of cabbage and carrots): I just bought a bag of precut cabbage and carrot mix, which is sold as a prepackaged coleslaw mix in the supermarket.
  • Salt and pepper: To taste, but since soy sauce has sodium, you may want to omit the salt if you like.
  • chopped green onions: I served them on the plate as a side dish. Adds a nice bright fresh flavor and a nice pop of color!
  • Sesame seeds (to decorate): Since you’ve already added sesame oil, you can omit it if you like. I personally love adding a sprinkle of sesame seeds for garnish after plating this dish to add texture and flavor.

How to make an egg roll in a bowl

Get ready for a new favorite food! This recipe is super simple and takes only 10 minutes. It’s also full of vegetables for balance and a complete dinner.

  1. Heat the seasonings: In a large skillet or wok, heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent.
  2. Add and cook: Add the garlic and ginger to the pan then cook another 30 seconds.
  3. Cook the meat: Cook ground turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown. Try to keep the ground turkey in larger pieces, don’t shred it too small.
  4. Add coleslaw: Add the coleslaw mixture and mix well.
  5. Cook until soft: Continue cooking mixture over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, then add soy sauce as coleslaw mixture begins to soften.
  6. Season: Spice with salt and pepper.
  7. Add seal: To serve, garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and additional soy sauce if desired. I also love a string of sriracha to add warmth.

Alternatives to ground turkey

I know turkey isn’t for everyone and this recipe pairs great with other proteins too! Be creative and have fun with it!

  • Free range chicken: Ground chicken goes so well with this flavor combination and is a great substitute for ground turkey!
  • Ground pork: Ground pork is a wonderful option for this dish and it tastes amazing with sesame oil.
  • Make it vegan: Don’t you want protein? You can make this recipe completely vegan by replacing the ground turkey with vegetables like mushrooms and carrots. Simply cook the vegetables until soft and in one bowl you have a delicious vegan egg roll!

Optional ingredient to keep turkey moist

Trust me, we’ve all had dry turkey and definitely don’t want to eat it again! With this little tip, you can say goodbye to ground turkey forever!

  • Add the minced mushrooms: Ground mushrooms add so much moisture and flavor to ground turkey that I promise you won’t dry out on this secret ingredient. Mushrooms can be added to the turkey at the same time and will release all of their flavor and juices into the turkey without diluting the dish. They also add a delicious meaty flavor that might otherwise be missing from ground turkey.

NOTE: Do your kids hate mushrooms? I bet they won’t even realize they’re in it! Ground mushrooms do not have the same consistency as whole mushrooms. They will blend into the ground beef and look almost indistinguishable. If you’re really sure your kids will hate this mushroom dish, you can add another 2 tablespoons of the oil of your choice to keep the turkey moist.

How to store leftovers

This dish is perfect for leftovers! It’s also great for quick lunches. I love having these leftovers on hand!

  • In the fridge: Once your dish has cooled completely (and no longer releases the moisture that would collect on top of the lid), you can put your egg roll in a bowl in an airtight container. It will last up to 4-5 days in the fridge.
  • To reheat: This meal heats up easily in the microwave! Just be sure to cover it with a damp paper towel so it doesn’t dry out when you heat it up.

If you love cooking that is easy to prepare, eat and clean, then fried foods are for you! These are some of my favorite fried recipes. Who says you have to sacrifice taste for simplicity? These meals offer the best flavors!
