Keto Egg Roll In a Bowl

This Egg Roll in a Bowl is one of those recipes that you simply have to try and make it. It is super flavorful, easy to prepare, healthy, ready in 20 minutes, and made with only 6 ingredients.

Unlike many Chinese-inspired dishes, that are deep-fried, this one is actually quite healthy. The coleslaw mix works really well here in combination with the ground sausage.

It is also full of proteins, and Keto friendly. If you are someone who is using weight watchers this recipe should be on your menu, as it is low in carb, high in proteins, and keto-friendly.

In addition, it stores well, and leftovers can be used for days to comes. Feel free to double or triple it as well. I use ground sausage here, but you can easily make it with ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. Just go with what you love and have on hand.
