Forget about frozen egg rolls. This egg roll recipe submitted by Stephanie McMillin is far cheaper (and tastier) too:

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 bag coleslaw mix (cabbage & carrots)
  • 1 lb ground beef or turkey, browned
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar


1. Mix the first four ingredients with hands.

2.Heat one-inch of oil in a frying pan to medium/high (but more towards medium).

3.Place one large spoonful of mix on a wrapper, and roll per instructions on package. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

4.Fry until deep golden brown on both sides.

Stephanie says: Meat is not needed for this recipe. Additional veggies may be substituted. Adding ground ginger is also delicious. Eggrolls may be refrigerated and microwaved. Very economical!

Erin says: Bagged coleslaw mix is a common item to find reduce-priced. Snatch up discounted bags, and you'll save even more.
