These Breakfast egg rolls are also surprisingly good for you and easy to customize for your specific game day crowd. So, to be fair, I cannot personally attest to whether or not Washington D.C. has the nation’s best egg roll variety.
I can promise, though, that, whether you’re watching the Washington Football Team (sorry) or just enjoying your weekend, you’re going to want to include these tasty Breakfast Egg Rolls.
Breakfast egg rolls
- 5 strips center-cut bacon
- 3 egg whites
- 3 eggs
- ¼ cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- 2 green onions chopped
- 10 egg roll wrappers
- STEP 1Cook bacon to a crisp over medium heat in a medium sized skillet. Set cooked bacon aside but reserve drippings
- STEP 2Whisk egg whites, eggs, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Add to bacon pan and cook over medium low heat
- STEP 3Once eggs are mostly set but still slightly runny, about 3 minutes for me, crumble bacon and add it to the egg mixture
- STEP 4Add cheddar cheese and green onions and stir to combine
- STEP 5Divide egg mixture evenly between egg roll wrappers on a dry surface about 3 tablespoons per wrapper. Roll egg rolls and set aside with seam side down
- STEP 6To air fry: preheat air fryer to 390 degrees. Spray basket with cooking spray. Air fry for 4 minutes, shake basket, then return to air fryer for an additional 4 minutes. Complete air frying in batches if needed, egg rolls should not be touching during air frying
- STEP 7To bake: preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Add egg rolls and spray tops with additional spray. Bake for 10 minutes or until egg rolls reach desired crispiness
Wrapping Egg Rolls can be intimidating but it’s definitely more doable than you think! Position the wrapper like a diamond with a corner facing you, place the filling in about an inch from the closest corner, tuck in the edges and roll! If all else fails, though, use Google to find a video!
You should be able to find egg roll wrappers in any major supermarket. Mine are usually in a refrigerated portion of the produce section near wonton wraps, udon noodles and plant based cheeses. You can absolutely adjust your egg rolls’s fillings based on group preferences. Omit the bacon or cheese or add your favorite veggies, you can really make these your own!
