Recipe Tips/Substitutions

Before you make the frozen egg rolls, have a quick read through these few recipe tips:

  • You can place the frozen egg rolls straight into the preheated air fryer – no need to thaw them first.
  • Since these are frozen egg rolls, you don’t have to add any extra oil to the outside to make them crispy. Often, the outside batter has oil in it and this helps in the crisping process!
  • There are lots of different kinds of frozen egg rolls available – some have a vegetable filling, some may contain meat. Some are large, while others are smaller. As a result, the time indicated below is just a guideline. Very small egg rolls might be done faster, while bigger egg rolls might take a couple of minutes longer – just keep an eye on them.
  • It’s important to not overcrowd your air fryer since the egg rolls need a little bit of space to get crispy and to heat evenly.

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Place the frozen egg rolls into the air fryer.

First, preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once it’s hot, place the egg rolls onto the air fryer tray. Be sure to leave some space between the egg rolls so that they have room to cook evenly and get crispy.

Cook the egg rolls for 9-11 minutes until fully heated through and crispy on the outside. Flip the egg rolls over half way. There are many different brand of egg rolls and air fryers, so cook time can vary slightly.

Remove the egg rolls from the air fryer and let them sit for a minute or two (the insides can be very hot). Enjoy!

Storage Tips

Egg rolls should be eaten when they are hot and crispy. If you leave them to get cold, they tend to get soggy (because the filling contains a bit of moisture).

In case you do have leftovers, place them in a sealed container and put them in the fridge overnight.

You can reheat them in the microwave or in the air fryer – they will definitely still be edible (and enjoyable) but probably not as good as when made fresh!

What to Serve Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls With

Air fried frozen egg rolls are a simple thing to make and a simple thing to eat. You can choose to eat them plain, with a dipping sauce – like plum, soya, or sweet n’ sour sauce – or cut them up and serve them as part of an Asian-inspired noodle dish.

We like to make egg noodles and some pan-fried wok veggies with rice noodles. Then we eat the egg rolls on the side!
