Egg rolls are Asian-inspired two-biters with the meatiest filling and the most satisfying crunch. Amongst all appetizers and finger food, these beauties are the best crowd-pleasing and satisfying treats.
The most remarkable thing about egg rolls is that they’re entirely customizable. You can stuff them with anything, from veggies to minced meat. Be creative! They’re always tasty because, who can say no to a crispy, tightly packed treat?
For these egg rolls, I used gluten-free wonton wrappers for the first time, and although I had my doubts, they worked marvelously, just like the regular kind. This inspired me to share an easy and quick gluten-free egg roll recipe that you and your loved ones will absolutely adore.
And being so inclusive, you can make a large batch of these bad boys and serve them for large crowds without worrying about their health. Some people just can’t handle gluten.
You’ll need more than gluten-free egg roll wrappers; of course, I’m filling mine with a ground beef filling flavored with garlic, onion and ginger powder and with the added crunch of a ready-made coleslaw mix.
You can store egg rolls, like all fried foods, easily. The real problem is that the wrapper might lose some of its crunchiness, so here’s what you have to do.
If you’re storing your egg rolls just for a few days, line an air-tight plastic container with paper towels, place your egg rolls, and store in the back of the fridge for up to five days.
You can also freeze your egg rolls in a freezer bag, large Ziplock back or air-tight container. Just thaw them for at least a few hours in the fridge before reheating.
To reheat your egg rolls, you can either re-fry them or warm them up with dry heat, meaning an electric or conventional oven. That will bring the rolls’ crispy texture back!
Sautee the ground beef with a tablespoon of oil until brown. Allow to cool and reserve.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with the coleslaw, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger powder and onion powder. Mix well.
Follow your gluten-free egg roll instructions, dampening and filling them while you tuck them into rolls.
Heat oil in a skillet and fry your egg rolls until golden. Serve with a soy and honey mixture or your favorite dip.
