Growing up, getting Canadian Chinese takeout was a rarity. My mom cooked everything from scratch and if we were eating out, it was usually for dim sum, Sichuan or Japanese cuisine. When I started visiting malls in high school, I quickly fell in love with teriyaki noodles and of course egg rolls.
This recipe for Turkey Egg Rolls in a Bowl adapts the traditional appetizer into an equally delicious dish that is quick to assemble, maintains those nostalgic flavours and has a customizable level of crunch. We used turkey thighs because it was what we had in our freezer, but any cut of turkey would work, from ground to breast to sausage. The turkey was so fragrant stir-fried with the sesame oil and vegetables, perfectly topped with a drizzle of Kewpie mayonnaise and Sriracha hot sauce. We fried up some crispy wonton strips to add on top, which can be easily found at most grocery stores. The dish is incredibly versatile and can be served on rice, by itself or thrown into a wrap for a satisfying meal and a great recipe for meal prep.
For this recipe, I like to have my vegetables just cooked vs if I were making egg roll filling, I would prefer the vegetables more done. This way it keeps the texture of the ingredients varied and creates a much more satisfying bite.
