Low Carb - Easy, Inside Out Egg Rolls

As a carb-o-holic, I'm always trying to create recipes that feed my eclectic tastes in food - but without the offending carbs. Since egg rolls rank as one of my favorite guilty pleasures, I decided to find a 'legal' way to eat them. The resulting recipe combines all of the goodness of the egg roll without the actual 'roll' - in other words, it's the filling without the  carb-filled outside.

Easy Inside Out Egg Rolls

1 lb. sausage* (either regular or Italian)
3 T minced celery
3 T minced onion
3 T soy sauce (or more, to taste)
2 T sesame seeds (optional)
1 T ground ginger
1/8 t garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
4-6 cups Cole slaw mix
black pepper, to taste

Brown sausage and then add celery, onion, and garlic powder. Beat egg and cook in butter, leaving flat and not stirred. Turn once. Chop and add to mixture. After all ingredients are cooked to desired state, add Cole slaw. Cook until wilted - about 5 or 10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
