Breakfast Egg Rolls with Bacon, Egg, and Cheese

Breakfast Egg Rolls with Bacon, Egg, and Cheese

I love egg rolls.  Whenever we get Chinese take-out, I always order two!  I justify it by telling myself that I am just making up for all the years I lived out West, where egg rolls are nothing like they are here on the East Coast!  I would never even think for a second that I could make a traditional Chinese egg roll just as good myself.  No way.  But, filling those crispy little wrappers with all kinds of other good stuff and making them my own?  You bet. I’ve got tons of ideas, but first up…Breakfast Egg Rolls!!

I honestly have no idea why in the world I decided that stuffing my breakfast into an egg roll wrapper and deep frying it would be a good idea, but let me tell you…it was a good idea!

The Breakfast Egg Rolls I made for this post are filled with bacon, scrambled eggs, and cheese. You can also use sausage, or if your from around my part of the country and have a thing for scrapple, go for it!  I would even consider using leftover steak!  I used my new deep fryer to fry mine and those instructions are included in the recipe below. You could use a wok with oil, or a frying pan instead.

First, you’re going to need to make the filling.  It’s okay if it gets a little cold while you’re wrapping the egg rolls, they will be plenty hot once they are done frying!

Now, the fun part!  Wrapping them!  It’s easier than you think.  Just make sure you wet the edges of the wrapper before you start.

Before you even think to ask, YES!  You can freeze these!  Just wrap them up air tight before you fry them.  I’ve got some in my freezer already for busy mornings 🙂

I also think these Breakfast Egg Rolls would be such a fun surprise for the kids, especially for breakfast after a sleepover!  I’m not saying the adults won’t enjoy them too though, because I sure do!

Instructions
  1. Add the butter to a medium frying pan, over medium heat. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and scramble. Pour into the frying pan.
  2. Sprinkle the cheese and crumbled bacon onto the top of the eggs and stir to combine until the eggs are cooked through.
  3. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface so that one point is facing you. Brush the edges with water. Place approximately 3 Tablespoons of the egg mixture onto the center of the wrapper. Fold the bottom point up, then fold the two side points in. Roll the egg roll away from you and seal the top point with more water, if needed.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Arrange the egg rolls in the frying basket so that they don't overlap. Lower into the oil and fry under golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Let cool before serving.

Loaded Cauliflower Bites

Low carb Loaded Cauliflower Bites are a delicious alternative to Loaded Potato Skins, or French Fries, yet equally as delicious!

Loaded Cauliflower Bites are a delicious ow carb alternative to potato skins or loaded french fries.  They are so good, you won't even miss the carbs!

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.  See our Disclosure Statement for more information.

I was going to start this post by telling you guys how these Loaded Cauliflower Bites are all low-carb and gluten free and an alternative option to potato skins and on and on…but really, what you need to know first is how good these are!  I mean really, if you smother anything in cheese and bacon, you’ve already got yourself a home run right?  Exactly.

Close Up

I crave carbs.  I really really do.  And I give in way too much.  I’m constantly trying to think of recipes where I can satisfy that craving without having quite as much guilt.  One of my favorite appetizers when we eat out is loaded potato skins.  Since we are not eating out very much anymore, I like to create the things I miss at home.  It did not take long at all for me to decide to create these Loaded Cauliflower Bites.

I’m a cauliflower addict (strange, but true), a cheese addict, and who doesn’t love bacon?  I personally don’t care for the green onions on top, but I put them there because you might.  I did have fun taking pretty pictures of the green onions next to our green knife though!  Sorry for that. I couldn’t help but throw them into the post!

Green Onions Green Knife

I am in no way saying this is a “healthy” appetizer.  No way.  It definitely is low carb (and gluten free), and I would say a better alternative to potatoes from that standpoint.

When I was pregnant and had Gestational Diabetes, the nurse who does ALL the nutritional counseling for pregnant women with Diabetes told me I could eat bacon every day.  Um, it may be low carb, but I don’t think eating it everyday is ideal.  However, I do believe that if you like it, you should eat it sometimes. And always in delicious ways, like this!

Enough of my rambling…on with some more mouth-watering, have-to-make-these tonight photos!

I would make two recommendations for when you make these.  One,use foil or a Silpat mat on your baking sheet so you can clean off the baked on cheese easier and two, use a fork.  They come close to loaded potato skins in a lot of ways, but not quite what I would call “finger food” unless you don’t mind getting messy!  Other than that, just load em up and enjoy!

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup Feature and Pin Photo

Cauliflower is becoming more and more popular as a low carb alternative to potatoes, and even pizza crusts!  Seriously, you can find just about made with cauliflower now a days!  If you’ve jumped around the blog at all yet, you” see that I use it a lot.  I like the taste, but I also use it often as a healthier replacement for potatoes or wheat flour and have been pretty happy with the results.  I have a few soup recipes that use cauliflower as the base. This Cheesy Cauliflower Soup recipe is designed as an alternative to a cheesy potato soup, but I personally think cauliflower should get more credit than as just a stand in for potatoes for those of us looking for low carb solutions.  This soup is really delicious!  I make a big batch and freeze it in individual containers so I always have a quick lunch on hand when I need it!

It can be modified in a thousand different ways.  This was the first time I made it this particular way!  This recipe as written is vegetarian, low-carb, and can easily be modified into a gluten free variety without sacrificing taste or texture at all!  For all you meat lovers out there, mix in some bacon, or sprinkle it on top.  You can also easily swap out the vegetable stock for chicken stock if that’s what you keep on hand in your pantry as well.  I could go on and on.
