Pork Egg Rolls (Baked) – 3 SmartPoints

I never used to like egg rolls. Weird right? It’s the bean sprouts. I’m not a fan of those. There is a Chinese restaurant by my house that I really like. One night I tried one of their egg rolls and I loved it! There were no bean sprouts in them!!!! I was in heaven.

They were filled with pork and cabbage. The only problem is they are about 6 SmartPoints each. That’s not too bad, but one egg roll isn’t very filling.

My baked egg rolls are only 3 SmartPoints each. I have two of them and I’m full. Not to mention they are delicious!

If you’re not familiar with egg roll wrappers don’t let them intimidate you. They are very easy to work with.

Lay out the egg roll wrapper and scoop 1/3 cup of the mixture in the middle.

Fold the bottom over the mixture, then fold the two sides in. I wet the top edge of the wrapper with water to help it stick, then roll it up. That’s it!
