Sausage Egg Roll In A Bowl
Whether you call this egg roll in a bowl or crack slaw, you’re going to love this quick weeknight dinner recipe!
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been doing a low carb keto diet off and on for the past 6 months or so. I lost 30 pounds in just a couple of months doing one earlier this year. Since then I’ve managed to keep the weight off and just do a week of the low carb diet here and there.
Well, the husband and I are having a little weight loss competition with each other (again! I won the first one!) and so I’m back to my low carb diet.
I’ve always said that I wouldn’t share any funky low carb recipes here that need a bunch of special ingredients. The blog isn’t changing much! But, I do want to share recipes that fit a low carb lifestyle and will be devoured by carb lovers! Which brings me to this crack slaw!
One of the foods that I really crave a lot is Chinese take out. I love fried rice – especially my bacon fried rice! Gyoza is another favorite of mine. But, let’s be real. Egg rolls are where it’s at. I have been known to go to the Panda Express drive through just for a couple of mediocre egg rolls when I’m lazy and desperate and not watching my carb intake.
I’ve shared our favorite egg rolls with you guys before, but the wrappers are loaded with carbs and frying egg rolls is pretty time consuming. No good! So, I basically just made the filling, dumped it in a bowl, and ate it with a fork.
This crack slaw is the perfect low carb Chinese food. I seriously could not get over how much this tastes like an egg roll. And my word, it’s so much easier than actually frying egg rolls!
This dinner clocks in at less than 400 calories, 5 grams total carbs, 3 net carbs, 23 grams of fat, and 23 grams of protein (with the disclaimer that I cannot guarantee this information is accurate. It was calculated on My Fitness Pal’s nutrition calculator and your mileage may vary).
It’s pretty perfect for a low carb dinner and it’s super filling and just packed with flavor. Best part? It’s done in less than 20 minutes. You could absolutely swap in some ground chicken for the sausage and you’d save some fat. Low carb diets need fat though, so this is perfect for me!
