We love egg rolls. but they are time consuming. I came up with this and we love it. The mixture tastes like the inside of an egg roll. The toppings we use are all optional and you can add whatever you think you would like. We like boiled egg. The French fried onions give you a bit of crunch like a fried egg roll wrapper but with less calories! The Thai Chili Sweet Sauce on top is like dipping your egg roll in the sweet sauce. You can use ground pork, turkey, shrimp or no meat at all. There are many options you could use to make it your own.
