Egg Roll Skillet

Save time and calories with this easy and delicious Egg Roll Skillet recipe! Serve it on its own in a bowl, over rice, or with noodles for a quick dinner idea!

I don’t follow a low carb or Keto diet, but I love that these movements have opened my eyes to the fact that I don’t have to eat my burger with a bun, my sandwich with bread, or my egg rolls and spring rolls with the wrapper. The carb-heavy “holders” of these foods are my least favorite part of the meal anyway, so I’m more than happy to throw a burger in a lettuce wrap and eat my egg roll out of a bowl, like with this Egg Roll Skillet.

I usually use sausage in this dish because that’s what my family prefers, but ground turkey or chicken is delicious, too, not to mention lower calorie. I also usually use a bag of shredded cabbage and carrots, but you could shred your own if you like. I’ve tossed in a handful of bean sprouts to the skillet, or added some sesame seeds or fried wonton strips on top as a garnish. Some fresh cilantro would be tasty, too! Feel free to use what you have on hand and make it your own.
