Baked Egg Rolls and Sesame Chicken Teriyaki

One of my co-workers got Chinese take-out for lunch last week, and as I watched her eat her egg roll, I decided to try out baked egg rolls, as I avoid all things fried, and try to make baked alternatives!

These egg rolls came out great, they were cripsy and delicious. I made Teriyaki Chicken and Snow peas alongside, and served the eggrolls with soy sauce and Chinese Hot Mustard.

It was the perfect make you own takeout for a Friday night!

Baked Egg Rolls

12 wonton wrappers
1 tsp. EVOO
4 cloves garlic, grated
1 " ginger, grated
1/2 c. shredded carrot
1/2 c. sliced scallions
2 c. shredded cabbage
1 red pepper, in julienne strips
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil

In a wok over high heat, add oil, garlic and ginger. Cook for 20 seconds constantly stirring, add carrots, scallions, and cabbage. Contine to toss over high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce and continue to stir and cook until all of the liquid is out of all the vegetables, about 5-8 minutes. Turn heat down if veggies begin to burn at all.
Lay wonton wrappers out on cutting board. Spoon 1 heaping tbsp. of the mixture into each wrapper, fold over and tuck in sides, use a little water on your finger to seal the last edge.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place egg rolls on a nonstick baking sheet, bake for 12 minutes, remove, baste the tops with a little so sauce on a pastry brush, return to the oven for another 5 minutes. Serve.

I'm always looking for healthy alternatives to my favorite dishes and have baked eggrolls in my blog too. It's surprising how crispy you can still get it without frying! I'm glad it worked out for you.
