Original Egg Rolls

The Best Egg Rolls

For some reason what people are calling the “Original Egg Roll” has slipped through the cracks with online recipes.  All it is, pretty much, is just a normal egg roll that is dipped in a Chinese Batter before its fried. I’ve researched it a little bit and some claim that the egg roll wrapper is suppose to be a crepe but I’ve had it served both ways. I find using a normal wrapper is much more practical for sealing and they’re fairly cheap so I don’t bother with the extra hassle of making my own.

My experience with Egg Rolls

These Egg Rolls leave little to be desired.  Except for the fact that you’ll probably want more.  One bite into these crunchy vegetable and pork fried rolls sends me spinning.  And because these aren’t made at most Chinese Restaurants anymore, I’m left with making my own and it took me a while to perfect.  But now that I’ve got it down, I thought I’d share it with the world.  I’ve included my Sweet and Sour sauce and my normal egg roll recipe in the links below, if you’re interested.  Also my Chinese Batter is there if you didn’t fully understand the way I make it here.

What is an Egg Bread Bowl

One of the main things I can say about this Egg Bread bowl is that it is absolutely GENIUS!  I just use a large dinner roll that can easily be hollowed out like a soup bread bowl, then I fill it with a few simple breakfast ingredients.  Now you can imagine how far you could take this if you really wanted to get creative.  The key here is to make sure you don’t turn your rolls into rocks while you’re cooking the eggs.  That being said, it might not be a bad idea to make and bake fresh rolls your self, before hand, to be sure they are not over cooked when they are hollowed out and baked again as Egg Bread Bowls.

One of my favorite breakfasts and Brunch is Tomato and Basil Bruschetta.  So, when it came to this Egg Bread Bowl recipe, I immediately thought of mixing up the Tomato and Basil ingredients to top it off.  And I’ve got to say that it really went well.  But, when you make your own Egg Bread Bowl, feel free to add cheese, avocado, sausage or whatever your little heart desires and you’ll be well on your way to making natures little breakfast bombs!
