Breakfast Egg Rolls
Wine Pairing: Leonard Kreusch Maywine
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
The weekend is here! Happy Saturday.
But it is also with a little sadness that #BrunchWeek comes to a close until next year. For my last recipe offering, I have prepared some Breakfast Egg Rolls which I have paired with a Maywine from Leonard Kreusch for #WinePW so there is happiness in that because my pairing went very well together.
I’m not usually that fond of sweeter wines being a dry cab girl myself, but this German wine went with my eggrolls perfectly. This tafelwein (simple table wine) wine has a variety of white grapes in it, and is also flavored with the woodruff herb in honor of it’s blooming during the month of May. And this wine is suitable for MayFest and MayDay celebrations. It is also perfect for early summer weddings as well as the obvious Mother’s Day brunch.
I like the flavor- sweet but not overly so, and it has a good amount of fruitiness, along with slightly herbal, almond and vanilla notes. I found it to be slightly floral to the nose as well, which I liked. As for food, I really liked that it went with the flavors of ginger and pineapple in my sauce. I also think it would go swimmingly with something like strawberries or Swiss cheese, especially in a quiche. Sausages for brunch would also go well with this light and fruity wine.
But now on to my egg rolls (and #BrunchWeek!) So don’t forget to sign up for the giveaway if you have not done so. This is your last chance.
I like the idea for this as a Brunch item because of the heavy amount of egg and bacon I put into it. And rice itself is not unknown to breakfast, especially in Buddha Bowls. But it carefully straddles the line between breakfast and lunch, being a little of both. And even though it is meant for Brunch, these are fine egg rolls for dinner as well.
You can also make these ahead if you are short on time, even freeze them. To reheat, place it frozen on a pizza pan and bake around 400°F. for about 20 minutes (more or less), turning them once for best crispiness.
Join me tomorrow as I post with Sunday Supper for Mother’s Day with my recipe for Ris de Veau Meunière, a French recipe which is actually Breaded Veal Sweetbreads in a Lemon Caper Sauce. If you have never cooked sweetbreads before, you won’t want to miss reading that one. It’s fabulous.
And thank you for joining in with me for #BrunchWeek as well as #WinePW and have a lovely Mother’s Day week. Spring is definitely here now!
Breakfast Egg Rolls
Prep time does not include rice cooking or chilling time
- 20 count package egg roll wrappers
- 5 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- 5 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons bacon fat or butter
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- 1/4 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed
- 1-3/4 cups cold cooked rice
- 2 tablespoons thick Island Teriyaki Marinade/Sauce (Soy-Vay and Kona Coast are two very similar and suitable brands)
- cooking oil
- Extra Island Teriyaki Sauce (for a dip)
- Prepare your rice and allow it to cool if you have not already done so (warm rice becomes gummy and sticky as fried rice).
- Cook bacon and crumble, reserving two tablespoons bacon fat.
- Decant off two tablespoons of the egg white into a small bowl to use for egg roll wrappers, then whisk eggs until lightly beaten, then cook as scrambled eggs in one of the tablespoons of bacon fat.
- Separately, cook the scallions, peas and carrots in the remaining tablespoon bacon fat, until the veggies are cooked, then stir in the rice and cook until lightly browned.
- Stir in the eggs and the 2 tablespoons of Island teriyaki sauce.
- Allow fried rice to cool.
- To make the egg roll, brush around the outside edges with egg white and pile 2 tablespoons of fried rice filling in the center (in a line, not a ball), then fold outside edges over, tap down then fold the top over and roll up like a burrito.
- Fry egg rolls in moderately hot shallow oil until golden and crispy; don’t crowd the pan and keep the oil heated on the lower side so they don’t over brown (they cook pretty fast).
- Serve egg rolls with additional Island Teriyaki sauce as a dip.
