Kitchen Tip Friday’s: Five Dollar Dinners~Let’s Make Egg Rolls! (Guest Post)

Posted on 19 August 2011 by noelskitchen

Happy Friday Everyone! It’s been a great start to the beginning of another school year. I’m just as excited as the kids are! I’m looking forward to sharing the experience of reading cool kid’s books, helping with book reports and so much more with the kids and school. Helping the kids with their homework, we’re going to be busy. That’s why I love today’s guest post from Maggie. Maggie shares one of our kid’s favorite recipes-Easy Vegetarian Egg Rolls. They are frugal, quick, easy and the kids came help make them. What’s even better is that it’s a Five Dollar Dinner!  How great is that my friends?

Enjoy today’s post!


Easy Vegetarian Egg Rolls


  • One pack egg roll wraps
  • Cabbage cole slaw mix
  • soy sauce
  • two garlic cloves, chopped
  • black pepper (optional)
  • vegetable oil


  • In a skillet, sauté cole slaw mix, soy sauce (to taste), and chopped garlic until the cabbage is soft, about five minutes on medium heat. Add black pepper if desired.
  • Let mixture cool, then wrap in egg roll wraps. The wrap package should have directions on the correct way to wrap.
  •  Lay wrap flat on a flat surface. Place 2 tbsp cabbage mix on the center of the wrap.
  • Wrap starting from the bottom corner, then the sides, and finish with the top. Seal the top flap down by wetting the wrap and sticking to the egg roll.


In the meantime, heat vegetable oil to 350°F. This is easier to do in a fryer, but can be done on the stove as well. For stove cooking, carefully monitor the heat of the oil. I found that the oil stays the correct temperature between low and medium heat, but closer to medium.
Once oil is heated, place egg roll in oil flap down. Fry for 3-5 minutes, turning sides, until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to soak up excess oil.
Cool egg rolls and enjoy, or freeze them for eating later!
with the top. Seal the top flap down by wetting the wrap and sticking to the egg roll.
