Easy Baked Egg Rolls
2 tablespoons olive or peanut oil
1 onion diced
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 bunch chopped scallions whites and greens
Several cloves minced garlic
¼ cup ground unsalted peanuts
2 tabelspoons finely chopped or grated fresh ginger
1 bag Dole Cole Slaw Blend
1 bag bean sprouts
¼ cup regular or low sodium soy sauce
Large egg roll wrappers
1 beaten egg
Cooking Spray

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat and add the oil. When hot, add onion through peanuts and sauté for about five minutes until the onions soften. Then add the ginger through soy sauce and toss to coat and combine all ingredients. Remove from the heat, place mixture in a bowl and allow to cool slightly in the fridge or freezer.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper, just coat the cookie sheet with a mist of olive oil spray. Place an egg roll on a flat work surface so that it forms a diamond shape. Place a few tablespoons of filling on the lower portion of the diamond. Fold the bottom corner over the filling and then fold the left and right corners over the filling so that it almost resembles an envelope. Dip your fingers in the beaten egg and coat the remaining top edges of the wrapper to act as glue. Then simply roll the wrapper up to finish it off. Place on the parchment paper and continue until all egg rolls are finished. Coat them all evenly with a generous mist of olive oil cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately with thai sweet chili sauce.

Shortcut: Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave for 5 minutes. Mix thoroughly, cool, roll and bake!

This sounds great, and I love that there is a video. Sometimes a recipe seems like it has a lot of ingredients, but when you watch someone put it together, you realize how easy it is.
I definitely plan to make these. Yum.

I just made a batch of my own. They are baking now. I had to substitute a couple things to go with what I had in my kitchen, but that’s what makes this recipe so great. Can’t wait to bite into them. Thanks Susannah!!

These are delicious. Finally a healthy way to get my egg roll fix when the cravings come…and they always do! I’ll admit I cheated- the shortcut was helpful. Great recipe and video!

I just tried these and they are really good. My family ate them all up, and I only had one. At least they were easy to make, so I’ll be doing them again. Thanks Susannah.
