Facebook Recipe - Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl

There are tons of recipes on Facebook. It's kind of ridiculous. I always used to wonder if they were any good, but I've tried a few of them and have always been pleasantly surprised.  Most of the ones I usually see, though, are for party food, comfort food and all the bad things that you want but know you shouldn't eat.  I found one, though, that looked easy, yummy and healthy! I've now made it, so I thought I'd share it in written form!

Perfect post workout meal!
The original recipe came from Buns in My Oven and can be found here. When you're a blogger yourself, you understand the importance of giving credit where credit is due! The funny thing is that my best friend told me about this recipe long before I ever saw the Facebook video, so when I did see it, I saved it because I knew I had to try it!

So I give to you Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl! I've changed the ingredients a little to match what I had also to make it Paleo and Whole 30 compliant!

Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl


  • 1 lb of sausage - we used chorizo because...chorizo. The original recipe calls for regular sausage.
  • Bag of tricolor slaw
  • Green onions (optional - I didn't have these, so I didn't use them)
  • Ginger - I am lazy and always have bottled ground ginger. You can also buy ginger and grate it yourself.
  • Soy sauce or coconut aminos if you want to be Paleo/Whole 30 compliant
  • Toasted sesame oil

The recipe also calls for garlic, but I didn't use it because I was being lazy and I really didn't feel like the dish was lacking. Also, chorizo has garlic in it which is probably why I didn't miss it. 

This recipe is super easy. I made it after gym class one night in about 10, maybe 15 minutes. 

  • Brown the chorizo or sausage

  • Add in the ginger, garlic, if not using chorizo, slaw mix and soy sauce or coconut aminos. I added a heaping teaspoon of ginger and just poured in some coconut aminos.  I didn't measure. 
Make sure to use a large pan! This is my 4 qt pan and I was still slingy slaw everywhere!
  • Stir to combine  while cooking down the slaw and sausage mixture. You want the slaw to soften some, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add in the toasted sesame oil and stir some more.  I eyeballed, didn't measure it. I did some taste-testing before I pulled the pan off the heat to make sure I had the right taste.

  • Remove pan from heat and serve. You can add in green onions at this point if you are adding those.
This makes about 4 servings. We each had a large serving for dinner that night and had enough to make lunches for the next day. If you're looking for a super quick and tasty weeknight meal, add this to your rotation!

  4. Looks easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  5. You made it in 10 or 15 minutes? That's awesome! I love easy recipes!

    1. Yes! Just dump ingredients in the in order and saute! My kind of recipe!

  6. This looks delicious!! Tell me about those coconut aminos...are they a good soy sauce replacement? And where do you get them? I've seen them popping up in W30 recipes here and there but they're still kind of a mystery to me lol...hadn't heard of them before. Thanks for sharing this recipe! :)

    1. They are okay. They have a similar flavor to soy sauce, but the flavor isn't as strong so sometimes I end up using more than the recipe calls for to get that flavor. I use them in Paleo and W30 recipes, but I haven't (and won't) completely replace soy sauce with them. I have found them at Whole Foods and Earthfare and on Thrive Market.

  7. Wow this sounds so yummy!! I love eggrolls but would have never though to have them in this deconstructed style... great recipe!
