Servings 8 egg rolls


  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • 2 cups leftover mac and cheese
  • 1 cup leftover short ribs (or other leftover meats)
  • 3 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 1/2 cup vegtable oil
  • 1 bowl water


  • First, heat up the leftover mac and cheese in microwave so it is easy to mix.
  • Next, mix in a bowl the leftover mac and chesse, leftover shortribs, scallions, and lime juice.
  • Now, place an egg roll wrapper on counter in a dimond shape with one corner facing you. Add water to edge of the egg roll wrapper.
  • Next, 2 tablespoons of filling on to middle of egg roll wrapper and spread out in horizontal line leaving 2 inch boarder on the left and right corners for folding later (see video above).
  • Now, fold the corner nearest you over the filling and then fold the left and right corners over. Roll up and seal the edges with water. The filling should make 8 eggrolls.
  • Next, add oil to pan on medium high heat. When hot add 4 egg rolls at a time so you dont lower the temperature of the oil. This will get a crispier less greasy egg roll!
  • Now, cook the egg roll 2 minutes per side to crisp up.
  • Finally, enjoy! I would be grateful for you to subscribe to Chop Happy to get new recipes to your emails!
