6 egg rolls


  • 1 ⅓ cups coarsely chopped leftover turkey

  • 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes

  • cup leftover green bean casserole

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ (12 ounce) package egg roll wrappers

  • 1 ¼ cups leftover turkey gravy

  • 1 tablespoon leftover cranberry sauce

  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying


  1. Combine turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Stir until evenly combined.

  2. Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface with one corner facing you, so it looks like a diamond. Place 3 tablespoons of filling onto the wrapper. Fold up bottom half of the wrapper and tightly fold in sides. Gently roll and seal with a couple of drops of water. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

  3. Place gravy in a small saucepan and stir in cranberry sauce. Heat on low until ready to use.

  4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Place 4 egg rolls in the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove egg rolls using tongs and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining egg rolls. Serve gravy on the side for dipping.

Cook's Note:

Not all green bean casseroles are created equal. If you used fresh green beans, you may need to chop them into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
