Breakfast Egg Rolls

By Slimshoppin @slimshoppin

Yesterday I had 25 minutes before I had to leave for work and I was thinking what I could make super quick to take to work. I looked in my fridge, I had eggs, some veggies, and I happened to spy an opened package of egg roll wrappers that needed to be used up. I wondered how many calories they were, so I looked on the back 3 wrappers – 170 calories!

I wondered what if I tried to make breakfast egg rolls?

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 3 egg rolls

Serving Size: 1 serving

Calories per serving: 385 calories

So quick and easy to make!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 green onions
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower
  • 1-2 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 egg roll wrappers


  1. In a mini food processor, add the carrot, green onion and cauliflower and pulse until it resembles rice.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs together. Cook the eggs on low heat (this makes them fluffier) until desired doneness. Set aside.
  3. In the same skillet add the veggies and cook for several minutes. Add the eggs back in and mix all the ingredients together. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from skillet.
  4. Take 1 egg roll wrapper and add about 3 tablespoons of the mixture in the middle. Fold from the bottom up, then the sides, roll tightly and wet the edges with water so it sticks together.
  5. Using a pastry brush, brush olive oil over the egg roll wrappers and cook in the skillet on low heat for about 3 minutes per side. If the heat is too high it will burn the outsides fast!

I brought a little stir fry sauce to work and dipped the egg rolls into that. DELISH! This kept me full for HOURS!!!

The best part, under 400 calories, for a totally deluxe breakfast.

Here is an example of how to wrap an egg roll:

I’m thinking you could make so many variations of these. Adding different veggies, maybe turkey sausage?

What ideas can you think of? This would be great for brunch too!
