Homemade Eggrolls

Tip Junkie handmade projects

To start out I used my Ninja to chop up my uncooked chicken breast. 1 full breast, then browned it in a pan, and chopped all my veggies finely again in the Ninja.  I didn't measure, just added a bunch of stuff.  I used about 3 regular sized carrots, 1 yellow onion, 3celery stalks, 1/4 of a cabbage, 1 1/2 cups of bean sprouts, and a clove of garlic. I also like mushrooms if I have them on hand, but you could use anything you want in yours, pork, other veggies etc.

I then sauteed/steamed all the veggies with the chicken after they were chopped up.  I also added garlic salt, seasoning salt, and soy sauce. After the veggies were tender I took an egg-roll wrapper, placed it on a plate scooped about 3-4 TBSP of the mixture onto the wrapper, I tried to keep it diagonal so the mixture was sideways on the wrap and it looked like a diamond facing me.


I folded over the two points into the center and dabbed them with water and stuck them to each  other. Flipped the bottom over the top and tucked it under the mixture then continued rolling it up until the end point where I again dabbed it with water and stuck it to itself to keep it together.

These are the end result after frying them in a pan with about 1 1/2-2 inches of oil.  I just browned them on all sides until they were golden.  Since all the ingredients inside were already cooked, it didn't take long.  They were sooo yummy! If you decide to make some and have some questions since I didn't take enough detailed pics of the folding process I'd love to answer any questions you might have!!  These were really easy and they might seem intimidating, but really are not at all.  Try making some today!

  5. @Dallas lol...A Ninja is a type/brand of blender that can also be used as a food processor. It is an infomercial item (one that actually works) I LOVE MINE!! I don't think I'll ever go back to a regular blender again!
