  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  1. In a large skillet, cook turkey over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the coleslaw mix, soy sauce, ginger, onion salt and garlic powder. Place 1/4 cup in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold bottom corner over filling; fold sides toward center. Moisten remaining corner of wrapper with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat.
  2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning often. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet-and-sour sauce. Yield: 10 egg rolls.

"These are great! Even my picky eater ate them. I didn't have any ginger on hand so I used 2 tablespoons of sesame ginger dressing instead and I also baked them instead of deep frying them."

"This is the first time I have used ground turkey and this is a good recipe to use it in. My daughter made some and I didn't know the difference. I made these last night and my husband didn't know either. It was quick and easy and very good. Using the coleslaw mix saved a lot of time. I will definiely use this recipe again. Yummy!"

"I like turkey, but with a lot more veggies. I doubled the recipe for 15 egg roll wrappers, adding a 16 oz pkg of coleslaw. I'm trying to lower my salt intake, so next time I'll omit the onion salt. I don't think I'll miss it."

"These were so easy to make. I cooked the turkey ahead of time and froze it. It only take a minute or two to thaw, so I had these made and ready to cook in less than 5 minutes. I am not a big fan of the turkey so next time I will make with hamburger. I would definately think you could freeze them before you cook them since all the ingredients are safe to freeze anyway."

"I wonder if you could make these up, freeze them and then when you were ready take them out and fry them or even fry first then freeze and re-heat? 10 is just to many for my family of 2 but it would be nice to have them around for a quick side with an asian style meal."
