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.
