I am so excited to share this recipe!
A friend on Facebook recently shared a recipe for a Sausage Egg Roll Bowl that had me so intrigued…
and so hungry….
that i couldn’t wait to try.
But then I thought…… how about wrapping it in crisp Romaine lettuce leaves and making it into yummy, healthy, quick, and easy Egg Roll Lettuce Wraps?!
This is definitely a 20-minute meal from start to finish. Who isn’t looking for one of these a few times a week?!
And there are so many possibilities for changing it up… switch out chicken or turkey sausage for the pork sausage… add raisins or craisins…. add walnuts or slivered almonds… add chopped sweet red peppers or crisp celery or mushrooms…
I think the key ingredients to this recipe are the soy sauce (low-sodium!) and the sesame oil (I used Trader Joe’s Toasted Sesame Oil).
I am a salt LOVER, but I only buy low-sodium soy sauce (believe it or not). If you want the full flavor of soy sauce without all the sodium, you will love low-sodium soy sauce. In fact – you can add more flavor! You can always add a dash of salt later if you really think it needs, but you can never take away too much of a salty flavor.
Here is the recipe as I slightly tweaked and made into a wrap!
I hope you will try, and I hope you love as much as I did!
Quick & Easy Egg Roll Lettuce Wraps
- 1 14-oz bag Fresh Express Cole Slaw Shredded Cabbage & Carrots Mix

Cook sausage in a large stir-fry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often to crumble, until fully cooked.
Add cabbage mix, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes until cabbage has softened a bit.
Remove from heat and top with green onions and drizzle with sesame oil. Stir to combine.
Serve over a bed of fresh romaine leaves or scoop into leaves to serve.
