Baked Breakfast Egg Rolls

Sylvia Waldsmith


In my younger years (OK....maybe it was last year), I would make Breakfast Burritos from my leftover Chinese food. I would stuff the Burrito with leftover fried rice, sesame chicken or moo shu pork, roll them up and heat them in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast.

I decided to take this a step further and actually make a "Chinese" style breakfast egg roll.

We love this unique recipe! If you love Asian cuisine, then this is a great breakfast recipe. It has a great balance of Asian flavors. The egg roll wrappers add a nice crunch. We dipped ours in shrimp sauce and it was delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

About a third of the way up wrapper, spread a small portion of the scrambled egg, the meat mixture and the rice.
