general ingredients

  • Egg Roll Wrappers defrosted
  • 2-3 tbsp canola oil for pan-frying
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour

for the filling

  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut drained
  • 1 cup corned beef or chicken chopped or in strips
  • 1/2 cup Swiss Cheese finely shredded
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 green onion diced finely

for the Russian Dressing

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 pickle spear diced fine (optional)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dill


  • Combine sauerkraut, chopped corned beef or chicken , Swiss cheese, caraway seeds and half of the green onion in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  • Prepare Russian dressing by combining all ingredients in a bowl, mixing thoroughly and add to the sauerkraut mixture. Save some for dipping.
  • Take an Egg Roll wrapper and place it on a plate in a diamond fashion.
  • Place about 2-3 tbsp filling about an inch above the diamond point at the bottom.
  • Then take the point and roll around filling one full rotation so the point is firmly under the filling. Then fold in the sides, wetting the edge a bit and then continue to roll, wetting the final point to seal.
