So I made pizza egg rolls for my family the other day. I thought I should try sloppy joe egg rolls too! They ended up being really fun and amazing! (originally published 3/16, affiliate links present)

How fun right??!!

Of course the kids got a kick out of them and anything finger foods is a big winner with 3 kids at home…but my husband and I liked them too.

  • We love any sort of egg roll recipe what can we say.

It is really quite simple to make (nothing I make is complicated), let me share with you the recipe for sloppy joe egg rolls.

sloppy joe recipe

While you are waiting for your mixture to cook and simmer a bit get a cutting board out with a small bowl of water and take 1 egg roll wrapper out so you are ready when the meat is done.

When your meat is done put it in a bowl next to your wrapper. Spoon some on like this and leave some room at the end and on the sides of your egg roll wrapper.

You’re first going to make my easy sloppy joe recipe for our sloppy joe mixture. We are going to omit the bun and use our egg roll or won ton wrappers instead.

Brown your ground beef or turkey and drain before adding these ingredients. To make your own sloppy joe sauce you just need mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar. Easy enough right??!!

Lay an egg roll wrapper down. Fill wrappers with filling and then fold the end up. Fold over the sides like this and then roll over and over.

Before rolling all the way over wet the very end with water and then roll all the way over so it sticks and doesn’t come apart.

While you’re rolling the first few sloppy joe egg rolls turn your oil on high heat so it can get the outsides golden brown.

Test the oil by putting a tiny piece of egg roll wrapper in and see if it fries nicely, doesn’t just sit there or fry way too hot and burn. Adjust heat accordingly before you put your egg rolls in.

  • Set paper towels on a baking sheet so you can set them on top when they’re done and absorb the excess oil. Serve with some salad and they’re done!!

Sloppy Joe Egg Rolls

  1. Prepare

    In a pan on the stovetop cook ground beef and diced onions until pink is gone, drain grease.

    In a bowl add your meat, add ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and mix until well combined.

    Taste and add more of any of these depending on how wet or mustardy you like your sloppy joe mixture.

  2. Roll

    Lay out 1 egg roll wrapper and fill with 2 tbsp or so of sloppy joe mixture on one end as you see in pictures in this post.

    Leave space on the sides so you can roll them up. Fold sides in and roll the meat up into the wrapper. Once you reach the other end use your finger and dab with water and roll over so the end won’t come undone.

    Do this until all sloppy joe mixture is gone.

  3. Fry

    Wait until your oil is hot, hot enough to sizzle a little piece of egg roll wrapper that is dropped in but not burn it immediately when dropped in.

    Put sloppy joe egg rolls into oil just until lightly browned on one side, flip and put on paper towel when both sides are light brown to absorb remaining oil.

    You can opt to use an air fryer or Ninja Foodi instead if you like.
