Pinterest is my go-to platform whenever I need some kids’ baon ideas. Sure, a lot of the recipes on there are from the West that call for hard-to-find, expensive ingredients. But then I found these easy egg roll recipes and I thought to myself, “Why haven’t I thought of this before? This is definitely something doable.”
Egg rolls are just like lumpia, except for the obvious difference in wrappers. Egg roll recipes use thicker wraps compared to lumpia Shanghai. Egg roll wrappers also have eggs as ingredients for the wrapper (hence the name, duh), whereas spring roll wrappers don’t. Whatever, right? They’re a bunch of wrappers that turn crispy when fried, or baked. They’re stuffed with meat and veggies and often, a mix of both.
What’s the difference and why do I feel the need to share this? Because they’re beautiful. They look tasty! And I want to try something new. Filipino lumpia Shanghai is usually made with a filling of ground pork, minced carrots, onions, garlic and seasoning. And you have that taste of lumpia wrapper. Egg rolls, on the other hand, are usually made with ground pork with cabbage, and shredded carrots as well as other seasonings. However, you can be creative with this recipe and try out other kinds of filling as well.
Below are some of the easy egg roll recipes I have compiled and will hopefully try out soon. Egg rolls can be great baon ideas for your kids. They’re crunchy and packed with flavor. Plus you can sneak in some veggies in there. There’s a choice between frying and baking them – take your pick.
Kids love chicken so why not make a chicken egg roll recipe? It’s easy and I’m sure it’s flavorful. It’s made like the usual egg roll but instead of pork, chicken is used.
The amazing thing about egg rolls is that they can be eaten anytime of the day. This bacon, egg, and cheese egg roll is the perfect breakfast treat! I love bacon. Kai loves bacon. People love bacon.

There you have it! I can’t wait to try one of these. I’ll give an update once I’ve prepped one of these easy egg roll recipes for my kindergartener.
