Are Egg rolls actually of Chinese origin?

Egg rolls are commonly associated with Chinese cuisine, yet their origin is unsure. One theory is that they were first created in China, specifically in the city of Fujian. These early egg rolls were made with thin crepe wrappers and filled with vegetables or meat.

However, another theory suggests that egg rolls were actually invented in the United States by Chinese immigrants.  Possibly invented by a chef named Henry Low in the 1930s in New York, the egg roll was designed as a new take on a traditional dish of meat and vegetable wrapped in egg.

Regardless of their exact origin, egg rolls have become a popular snack or appetizer in many countries around the world, including the United States. Whether they are authentically Chinese or a fusion creation, there is no denying that egg rolls are a beloved and delicious treat.

Ninety years later, and in keeping with Cuss Kitchen®’s ever-descending depravity, this deconstructed egg roll departs from the original – in the naughtiest way we could think of (so far…).


To be a better conversationalist, ask questions that encourage othes to talk about themselves, such as "What the f*ck is wrong with you?"


Are Egg rolls healthy? 

Egg rolls are a popular Chinese appetizer that consist of a filling wrapped in a thin wrapper made of wheat flour, egg, and water. The filling typically consists of vegetables, meat, and sometimes noodles. While egg rolls are tasty and convenient, they are not particularly healthy. Since they are typically deep-fried, they are high in fat and calories. In addition, the wheat flour wrapper used to make egg rolls is not particularly nutritious and can be high in carbohydrates.

Furthermore, the meat used in egg rolls may contain a lot of sodium, which can lead to high blood pressure if consumed in excess. While egg rolls may be tasty as an occasional treat, they should not be a regular part of a healthy diet. It’s important to balance indulgences with healthier food choices such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

We make Cuss Kitchen® inside out egg rolls by air-frying the skins – egg roll without fat from frying.  If we make an “egg roll in a bowl without the skin- we have a delicious mix of lean meat, vegetables, sprouts and seasonings.  This is another great way to enjoy and love this recipe.

    I have been trying to lose a few pounds- and this has been a great recipe. I skip the shell and eat the cooked vegetables and ground turkey. So good I could it it every day.
