Takeout-inspired recipes are popular around these parts, whether it’s DIY dumplings in spicy sauce, homemade spins on pan-fried potstickers or the current front-runner in the ratings department (1,000+ 5-star reviews and counting!), Easy Beef and Broccoli.

Egg rolls are also a popular option, with six variations ranging from savory to sweet and baked to deep-fried.

I love serving this Healthy Egg Roll In a Bowl with a fried egg on top for added protein, and also for that classic runny yolk that you can break and stir into your bowl. A drizzle of sweet chili sauce on top ensures you won’t be missing a single dip or dunk!

    So hit the spot when craving egg rolls but don’t want a ton of calories! I used ground pork and also added some yellow bellpepper, mushrooms and a little broccoli and served over brown rice. Delish!!

    Wow, my wife and I didn’t change a thing with this recipe and we’re eating in silence because it was sooo good.

  3. Love your recipes, but am I missing the Nutritional statement somewhere? Would be nice to see all of that and be able to plan accordingly for calories, carbs, sugars, etc.
