There is an awesome recipe here that will fill the eggroll spot. I will find the thread and bump it.

Here is the link:

I found this recipe.
Egg Rolls in a Bowl Chandra THM Forum
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 lb. ground pork
6 cups finely sliced cabbage (about 1 medium head)
1 cup shredded carrots (jicama)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced
2 green onion stalks, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ cup coconut aminos
Salt and black pepper to taste
Brown the ground pork in large frying pan until fully cooked. Turn heat to medium-high and add chopped onion (not the green onions yet) and sesame oil, increase heat to lightly brown the onions. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger and coconut aminos and add to pan, and then immediately add the sliced cabbage and stir. Cook for a few minutes, stirring often, so that it doesn’t burn and so all cabbage slightly wilts and reduces in size. Then add shredded carrots and cook for another few minutes. Turn off heat, add chopped green onions, salt and black pepper to taste, stir one last time and serve warm.

I will say I tried to deep fry a piece of Julian Bakery's Paleo Wraps as they seemed like them might work as an egg roll wrapper. Unfortunately they cooked very quickly so I didn't pursue the project.

I know how you feel, Sheepdog. There are lots of great recipes for the eggroll "innards", but sometimes you want the crispy outside too. I would love to find a low carb crab ragoon recipe (including the crispy shell, not just the cream cheese filling).

I have used Mama Lupe's Tortillas for Eggrolls and Crab Rangoons. Haven't made them in a while. I need to get a Netrition Order going for some Mama Lupe's

Melissa Sevigny has a recipe for Crab Rangoons on her blog. only 2g carbs per rangoon. I've never made them, so I don't know how many make a meal, but the entire recipe makes 60 rangoons, so they may be better as a party snack than for a real meal.

What about using the Joseph's Lavash bread? Maybe cooking the egg roll "inards", rolling in a piece of quarter-cut Lavash, oiling it up and baking?

I make crackers all the time and they come out crispy...just not sure if baking with the filling would allow them to crisp up enough.

This may or may not be an option you care to try, but rice paper wrappers (like the kind used for Vietnamese spring rolls) are about 3g carbs (gluten free) each.
It would take 2-3 to make a sturdy enough wrapper to hold up to frying though.
