Egg Rolls… a great snack?

A great carry along snack or meal is homemade ‘Egg Rolls’.  Many years ago I lived in South Korea, and these snacks were often served.  I have North Americanized this great little treat.  Not only are they a great way to serve up more veggies, they make great finger food too!

I know what you are thinking… Egg Rolls?  But these are nothing like the deep fried Egg Rolls you may be imagining…

Veggie Egg Rolls

These are good for a one-year old.

  • Finely chop 3/4 C steamed or leftover cooked vegetables
  • In a small bowl beat 2 eggs and pour onto a hot non-stick pan.  Tip the pan so the egg covers the entire pan in a thin layer
  • Reduce heat to medium and watch the egg closely, when it is mostly cooked on the bottom, but not cooked through, sprinkle the chopped veggies across the egg.  You can also add grated cheese.
  • Using a spatula, carefully pull the egg up from the pan and begin to roll the egg.
  • Roll it until the entire egg ‘crepe’ is a big roll.  Carefully remove it from the pan and thinly slice the egg into sushi-like rolls.  Serve it warm or cool with steamed veggies, or on it’s own as a snack!

With these egg rolls the trick is really the frying pan.  I have tried this in my cast iron pan to great failure, the only pan it seems to work with is my non-stick (non-teflon) pan.  Try to make sure the egg does not cook completely while you are rolling it.  It will cook itself once it is rolled, but if you wait too long it won’t roll well.  If it fails, serve it like an omelet; but if it works it makes a fancy treat for a toddler!
