Egg rolls are very simple and tasty to make. All you have to do is place your ingredients in your egg roll, wrap, and seal. Once the roll has been made, and all contents are tucked safely inside, you can fry or bake them. The end result is a crispy golden-brown goodness.

These egg rolls are not like any you may have tried before. You’ll thank me later! Get ready to turn your St. Patrick’s Day meal around with these egg rolls as your go-to from here on out.

What are the ingredients?

Traditional egg rolls already contain cabbage but also contain carrots and either shrimp or chicken. These St. Patrick’s Day egg rolls have carrots, cabbage, and of course, corned beef. It really is a grand partnership of flavors. You’ll enjoy the heat of the meat and the delicious, and nutritiousness, of the veggies. Then, everything is tucked into an egg roll and fried to golden, crispy perfection.

You can also make these egg rolls in the oven and skip the frying. If you go the baked route you can save on calories and just generally have a healthier egg roll. However, baked are unfortunately not going to taste as good as fried. The option is still there though for whatever reason. Air frying is also very popular these days if you have an air fryer.

Egg roll wrappers themselves are very versatile. You don’t just have to make egg rolls with them! Anything can be a filling to an egg roll wrapper. Some options are pies, mozzarella, filling for taco, breakfast type foods, and so on. The options are endless, so don’t be afraid to experiment with them. In almost all cases you are preparing your egg roll wrapper the same way: fill, seal, and fry! Some ingredients may ooze out more than others, so do keep that in mind when playing around with egg rolls in the kitchen.

SIDES FOR ST PATRICKS DAY EGG ROLLS

I personally love serving these egg rolls alongside potato dishes and fresh bread. Baked, roasted, soup, etc. all things potato related are great with these St. Patrick’s Day egg rolls. As far as bread, if you can make your own bread from scratch, it just adds to the deliciousness of the entire meal. There’s also a ton of Irish inspired recipes to try out if you want to have themed sides. They are also great by themselves, so don’t do sides if you don’t want to!
