Homemade Veal Egg Rolls are filled with a ground veal and cabbage mixture. They are fried up until they are all nice and crispy and served with your favorite dipping sauce. These make the perfect make-ahead appetizers. They are easy to make and can be frozen until you are ready to cook them.Veal Egg Rolls

Ground veal is a great choice to use in place of other ground meat recipes, such as these egg rolls. It is nutrient dense and naturally lean. It has a delicate flavor and goes well with many types of seasonings.

When I made these egg rolls I used a little bit of butter to add some fat along with a tiny amount of sesame oil to add flavor. When it is cooked, it will no longer be pink. The color you see in the ground veal photo above is from the added coconut aminios. When it is cooked, it will be a light greyish color.

Homemade Veal Egg Rolls are easy to make!

It is as simple as buying the egg roll wrappers, mixing the filling in your skillet, then rolling the filling into the wrapper. Check out my photos and video for a visual!

You will start with the egg roll wrapper laid out on a board (or your countertop, whichever you prefer).

The edges of the wrapper should be dampened lightly, using your fingertips that have been dipped in water.

Next, you will add the filling near the corner that is closest to you. (Please ignore the flour marks on my fingers, those are from dampening the edges of the egg roll wrapper!

Once the filling is on the wrapper, you will bring the corner closest to you over the filling and start to roll it tightly.

Next, the corners on each side of the roll will come across the top of your first fold.

Once they are tucked in, you will continue to roll. If you need to add a little water to the final seam, that is ok. Just make sure your egg roll is “glued” together. This is what you are doing when you put water on the wrapper to dampen the flour coating.

At this point, you can either go ahead and fry the egg rolls or you can freeze them to fry later. You could also bake them if you wish, just brush the egg roll with a little oil or spray with some cooking spray and bake at 425 for about 18-20 minutes.
