Baked Lumpia, Filipino Eggroll with ground pork and chicken - Low Calorie, Low Fat Healthy Appetizer

This week’s theme for Sunday Suppers is Asian food.  Well that works rather perfectly as I have been holding onto a recipe for Lumpia.  Lumpia is a Filipino eggroll that is insanely good.  I actually remember the first time I had one.  Yes, it made that much of an impact on me.  It was my freshman year of college, and I was at a friend’s house playing games.  Her Mom made us lumpia.  It was absolutely love at first bite.  They were fried, cigar shaped egg rolls filled with ground pork.  I could have eaten the entire plate.  A few years later, I had them again when one of my parent’s neighbors brought them to a party.  They were just as good as I remembered.  This time I got the recipe.

Since that time, we make them every year for our Christmas party.  We had always fried them and made them with ground pork.  I really wanted to lighten them so we could enjoy them more than once a year.  So I swapped some of the ground pork for ground chicken and baked them.  They were just as good.  The ground chicken did not overpower the flavor of the ground pork.  Surprisingly there is very little in them.  It is a case where a few simple ingredients combine to make something spectacular.

With a few simple changes, we can now enjoy Lumpia as part of a healthy diet rather than a splurge for a special occasion.  Give it a try and enjoy a taste of the Philippines.  They are so good, you will want to add them to your Christmas menu too.

Ingredients

  • 1 large carrot peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion cut into 8
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 2 packages thin egg roll wrappers look for ones that 3 wrappers for 170 cal
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Fill a small bowl with 1/4 cup water.
  4. In a food processor, pulse the carrot, onion and garlic until very finely minced.
  5. Place into a large bowl and mix in the eggs, anchovy paste, salt and pepper.
  6. Then mix in the ground pork and chicken.
  7. On a clean work surface, lay an egg roll wrapper down.
  8. Place about 2 heaping tbsp. of pork mixture about 1/2 inch from the end of the wrapper.
  9. Using your fingers spread the meat out until it is about a 1/2 inch thick rope lining one side of the wrapper.
  10. Tightly roll up the wrapper so it looks like a cigar.
  11. Wet your finger with water and moisten the seam of the egg roll to fasten together.
  12. Place seam side down onto the baking sheet.
  13. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
  14. Brush top and bottom of egg rolls with oil.
  15. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown, and meat inside is cooked through.
  16. Cut the egg rolls in half and serve with sweet chili sauce.

Recipe Notes

I like to cut the egg rolls in half to serve. This would give you a total of 80 to 84.
To freeze:
Complete steps 1 through 13.
Place the baking sheets in the freezer.
Once egg rolls are frozen, place them in plastic freezer bags.
To cook from frozen:
Do not defrost. Preheat oven to 450•.
Place on a baking sheet and brush with oil.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

  1. YUM! I just discovered Filipino food not that long ago, and I love it! These eggrolls are going on my list to make!
  2. Sounds wonderful! I love that you lightened these up.
  3. So true how simple flavors can come together to make something so delicious. Your egg rolls look wonderful.
  4. I have missed out! I've never, ever eaten lumpia. Your lightened up version looks terrific.
  5. I first had lumpia when visiting at my brother's house in California. A friend of theirs brought a platter to a party they were hosting. I managed to grab one before all the other guests inhaled them. Delicious but I didn't get the recipe. Now I have one, thanks.
  6. These look delicious!
  7. I love how you made a traditional dish healthy! I can't wait to try them the flavor sounds amazing.
  8. I quite enjoy lumpia! I've only had a pork and shrimp combo, I like that you used chicken - I'd be more comfortable cooking all meat at home vs mixing with the seafood.
  9. One of my coworkers at school makes these, they're to die for!
  10. Your baked version of Lumpia looks and sounds delicious! I often advise baking, it too for the health-conscious. I have never made one with anchovy paste and I bet that adds a lot of flavor! This is the best party food for me!

      Hi Abby, I find that anchovy paste is a fantastic way to add flavor when you are cutting fat. It, surprisingly, adds a meaty flavor, not fishy.
  11. Such an interesting recipe! I used to love egg rolls!
  12. Thes looks so good, I am definitely saving these for later!
  13. I love egg rolls! And you must be reading my mind, as I have a recipe that went live today with sweet chili sauce as well:)
  14. These look wonderful! I've always wanted to try making Lumpia, they were so popular with locals when we lived in Florida but hard to find here in Alabama. Thanks for sharing!
  15. I love this version of lumpia! I am part filipino and lumpia has always ben a big part of our family get togheres. It is what of my favorite things to make. I usually do about 80 - 100 at a time and then freeze the rest so I can make it anytime :)
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Des, They do freeze beautifully. I loved finding a way to make them healthier so I could enjoy eating them more often.
  16. What tasty looking egg rolls! (And I LOVE that dish you plated them on!)
  17. Sounds very good! I'd never heard of lumpia before this #SundaySupper event.
  18. I just recently had really GOOD lumpia and I agree the traditional lumpia is a treat to have once in a while! I love your lightened up version!
  19. Would love to try these Christie! I love lumpia, but because it's deep fried, I limit my consumption to a few times a year(birthdays/holidays) and just one or two. Thanks for the healthy alternative!
