Now that school is starting back up (and I have a kindergartener this year!!) I am all about the easy and healthy dinners that I can make during the week. I think my kids' all-time favorite is my Spaghetti and Meatball Casserole (which I like to make a couple batches of and freeze!) but this Egg Roll in a Bowl is mine. I've made versions of Egg Roll in a Bowl for quite awhile, but I've always felt like they were missing something. Then it hit me: the crispy fried wrapper! My solution? Topping my egg roll in a bowl with homemade fried wontons!

Ah, yes. That was it. The crispy wontons were exactly what my ideal Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe was missing. Oh, and a fried egg. I'm in the camp that a fried egg on most things is a good choice, and this is absolutely one of those things!

Ingredients in Egg Roll in a Bowl

  • Ground Chicken - you could use ground beef, pork, or turkey, too.  I've used all of them in this recipe and they are all delicious!
  • Olive Oil
  • Sesame Oil - I absolutely love the flavor that sesame oil gives to this recipe and I would not recommend skipping it!
  • White Onion
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Fresh Ginger
  • Soy Sauce
  • Hoisin 
  • Coleslaw Mix - sure, you could chop up your own cabbage, but I like to make my life easier and grab a couple of bags of pre-chopped coleslaw mix.  This makes prep time way less and clean up way easier!
  • Canola Oil
  • Wonton Wrappers - these are cut into strips and fried in the canola oil.
  • Eggs

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl

This Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe is super simple to make. To start, heat the olive oil and sesame oil in a large skillet and cook the onion and ground chicken. Once the chicken is no longer pink and is broken up into smaller pieces, add the garlic and ginger, and cook one more minute.

Then add the soy sauce, Hoisin, and coleslaw mix and cook until the coleslaw is cooked. This can take 5-10 minutes. While that is happening, or after, fry the wontons and cook the eggs. I like to fry the wontons first and then cook the eggs in the same skillet as the wontons to decrease the number of pans I use. Simply heat canola oil over high heat. Once it's hot, add strips of wonton wrappers and cook for 15-20" per side. They will turn golden pretty quickly so watch them closely!

For the eggs, reduce the heat to medium-high and fry until the whites are cooked through and the egg yolk is cooked to your liking. I like to put a lid on it for about 1 minute at the end to steam the yolk a little bit, but still keep it runny.

To finish the egg roll in a bowl filling, stir in the green onions. Serve it topped with the crispy fried wontons and a fried egg. Of course, a little Sriracha on top would be a delicious addition, as well. Enjoy!

    It is not false advertising that it will be a family hit and you'll be asked to make it again. I was looking for something to do with all cabbage from our CSA and this was a great find. The wonton wrappers are a genius move and the recipe came together quickly.
