Cheese, egg rolls are an omelette variation. The dish is popular in many parts of Asia such as Japan and Korea. It can be used both as a breakfast recipe and a side dish. There are several variations to the omelette. In this recipe, we keep it simple by adding only garlic powder, cheese, parsley flakes, and eggs. As a variation, you can add finely chopped onions, red or green bell peppers, tomatoes, or bacon bits. The variations are virtually endless.
In this recipe, we use a rectangular pan specifically designed for egg rolls. This makes a flawless egg roll. You can, however, use just about any pan. You just have to pay a little more attention to the design of the egg roll and do a little more trimming. Of course, a nonstick pan always does the best job. When cooking the roles, be sure to add only a quarter of the egg mixture at a time. As it cooks, swirl and rock the mixture until it sets. Remember, not to over cook the eggs.

- Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl – except the oil. Whisk until well combined.
- Add cooking oil in a square non stick pan and brush it on all sides. We use a square shaped non stick pan to maintain the shape of the rolls. You can, however, use any pan you have on hand.
- Pour in 1/4 of the egg mixture in. Swirl and rock the mixture around the pan. Cook over medium low heat until the egg is firmly set.
- When set, roll it with a wide spatula or egg flipper from one side to the other. Don’t remove the roll, just leave it in one side of the pan.
- Again, pour 1/4 of the egg mixture into the empty space. Swirl and rock it around the pan. Before the egg is completely set, sprinkle the grated cheese over. Allow it to cook until it firmly sets. When set, roll it from side to side. Repeat this procedure for the final layer – until you have 4 layers. Basically, 1 egg is used for one layer of the roll.
- Slice the egg roll or serve whole with your favorite breakfast dish. Enjoy!
