Breakfast Egg Rolls

Another favorite website for healthier recipes is Hungry Girl. It’s worth checking out.

An excellent, healthy, easy-to-eat alternative to a breakfast sandwich.


  • 2 frozen meatless or turkey sausage patties with around 80 calories or less. (Morning Star Farms or Jimmy Dean are good brands.) I use Jimmy Dean light turkey sausage crumbles. Saves time!
  • 1/3 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 TSP garlic powder
  • 1/4 TSP onion powder
  • !/4 TSP each of salt & pepper
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 6 large square egg roll wrappers (usually found in the refrigerated Asian items)
  • Optional dips: Salsa, ketchup, sweet-n-sour sauce maybe?


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. (This recipe was created before the popularity of air fryers, I’d cook them in an air fryer for extra crispy rolls)
  2. Cook sausage in a large skillet (sprayed with nonstick spray). Transfer to cutting board.
  3. Add spray to the pan if necessary, and bring to medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper & onion. Cook and stir until slightly softened about 4 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium. Add the egg substitute and seasonings. Cook and scramble until veggies are soft and eggs are fully cooked for about 3 minutes.
  5. Transfer egg scramble into a medium-large bowl.
  6. Chop or crumble sausage (unless you use the Jimmy Dean crumbles!). Fold the sausage and cream cheese into the egg scramble.
  7. Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute about 1/6th of the egg scramble (about 1/3 cup) in a row a little below the center.
  8. Moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the sides about 3/4 inch toward the middle to keep filling from falling out. Roll the wrapper around the mixture and continue to the top. Seal with a dab of water.
  9. Place on the baking sheet, spray rolls with baking spray (unless using an air fryer) and bake for 3-5 minutes.
Fading Memories was created to support family caregivers in a simple, on-demand form. When I was looking for advice on caring for my Mom, I needed this podcast. Since it didn’t exist, I created what I needed!
