Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork breakfast sausage
  • 8 ounce bag coleslaw mix
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 egg roll wrappers
  • vegetable oil (for frying)

Instructions

 
  1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage, breaking into into small pieces, and cook through. Drain the fat. I used a food processor to further break up clumps – just a few pulses.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the sausage, coleslaw mix, ginger, garlic, salt, and pepper and stir to combine.
  3. If you are using a mini-fryer, add oil and allow to heat to 375, otherwise use a deep pot – add 2-3 inches of oil and using a thermometer, heat to 375 degrees.
  4. Take around 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture into an egg roll wrapper. Fold in each side and then roll up tightly. Use your finger in a small glass of water to brush on the pastry just before you close the roll – this makes the pastry stick together. Roll all of your eggrolls while oil is heating, then set aside.
  5. Fry egg rolls, a few at a time, cooking around 2 minutes before flipping and cooking another 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Drain a paper towel lined cookie sheet.
