Variations

Add spice – to add some heat to the flavor of the Egg Roll in a Bowl, stir in some red pepper flakes or hot sauce. (Or both!)

No carrots – if you do not want carrots in your Egg Roll in a Bowl, look for a coleslaw mix that doesn’t contain them, or finely slice some fresh cabbage to use instead of coleslaw mix.

Onions – you can add diced onions to the ground beef as it sautés so they soften and add more onion flavor to the dish.

Sausage – instead of ground beef, you can try using sausage.

How to Serve Egg Roll in a Bowl

Wonton strips – in the salad department you will find fried wonton strips that are meant to be salad toppers. These taste great sprinkled over the Egg Roll in a Bowl.

Yum yum sauce – we love to drizzle some yum yum sauce on top before serving.

Teriyaki sauce – if you love the flavor of teriyaki, try adding a bit to the ground beef before adding the coleslaw mix.

Rice – this recipe is delicious served over steamed rice or cauliflower rice.

How to Store Leftovers

Store the leftovers in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat individual portions in the microwave or in a skillet over low-medium heat.
