You don’t have to wait for November to relive the flavorful explosion of thanksgiving turkey. Home cooks will love this baked turkey egg rolls recipe because it’s both easy to customize and packed with nutrients.

 

In making this dish, the ingredients that you’ll need are 6oz of ground turkey, lean then three egg roll wraps. Next off, fill two cups with raw spinach and a quarter cup with bean sprouts. For the seasonings, get a tablespoon of red chili pepper, minced garlic, and cumin.

 

Once you have all of your ingredients ready, set your oven to 405 degrees Fahrenheit. Get a skillet on the medium heat setting then add your ground turkey in.
