I grew up in a very rural part of the world, so we didn’t have a lot of quality restaurants around growing up. There were chain restaurants and local BBQ joints, but only a handful of ethnic eateries. I don’t know where the official line is between American food and ethnic food, but if it wasn’t a hamburger, hot dog, or soup beans it was too ethnic for my dad.
Anyways, the first time I ate an egg roll, it was in a barn/restaurant and it was delicious! Of course, it may not have been the most authentic egg roll as it was filled with Velveeta cheese as well as the traditional egg roll fare. But you know what they say, you never forget your first…egg roll.

Does an egg roll have an egg in it? Can I add egg?
An egg roll is called an egg roll due to the traditional egg roll wrapper used to wrap the fillings. That wrapper traditionally has an egg in it. If you want to add egg to your Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl then go right ahead! It will taste similar to Keto Fried Rice!
