AIR FRYER EGGS ROLLS RECIPE

There is nothing quite like homemade Air Fryer Egg Rolls. And they’re easier to make than you might think!

They are the perfect finger food the whole family is sure to love. The egg roll filling includes traditional flavors like soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sweet chili sauce.

If you are looking for a quicker version, we’ve also created a recipe using frozen eggs rolls that’s a quicker option for those busy nights.

We love dipping these crispy egg rolls in sweet chili sauce, or they can be enjoyed on their own. If you love air fried appetizers, you might want to check out these Frozen Popcorn Chicken, Air Fryer Chicken Wings, and Air Fryer Frozen Dumplings recipes.

INGREDIENTS IN AIR FRYER EGG ROLLS

Toasted Sesame Oil: Sesame oil is used to saute our pork and vegetables– it adds a subtle richness and nutty flavor to the filling. Feel free to swap it for olive oil or vegetable oil if that’s what you have on hand.

Ground Pork: Pork is a traditional ingredient in egg rolls so we’re using it in this recipe as well! You could substitute ground beef or chicken– or leave it out for a vegetarian version. 

Coleslaw Mix: Coleslaw mix is a great shortcut! It is a combination of shredded carrots, green cabbage, and purple cabbage. If you can’t find coleslaw mix, you can use 2 cups of very thinly sliced cabbage and ¼ cup of grated carrot. 

Garlic and Ginger: Garlic and ginger are the aromatics in our egg rolls– they add great flavor! I’m using the grated paste from the grocery store but feel free to grate them on a microplane if you prefer. 

Soy Sauce: Soy sauce adds a salty, earthy flavor to the egg rolls. 

Hoisin Sauce: Hoisin sauce adds a rich, smoky flavor to the filling– it pairs well with pork and really enhances the flavor of the egg rolls! 

Sweet Chili Sauce: Sweet chili sauce is typically used for dipping egg rolls so I like adding a bit of it to the filling to really bring out the sweet and spicy flavor. 

Scallions: Scallions add a fresh, gentle onion flavor to the egg rolls. 

Egg Roll Wrappers: Egg roll wrappers are a necessity for egg rolls! They’re available in most grocery stores in the refrigerated section near the tofu. 

Egg Wash: An egg wash helps seal the egg rolls so they don’t unroll. It also helps them become golden and crisp in the air fryer.

HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER EGG ROLLS

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil. When the oil is fragrant, add the pork, and cook as directed. Make sure to stir the pork and break it into very small pieces as it cooks.
  2. Next add the coleslaw mix, garlic, and ginger. 
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sweet chili sauce. Add the mixture to the pork and cabbage and stir to combine. Remove the pan from the heat and add the scallions. 
  4. Spray your air fryer basket with olive oil spray, allowing the filling to cool for 5 minutes while you preheat the air fryer.
  5. Fill each egg roll wrapper with ⅓ cup of filling. Fold in the corners of the egg roll wrapper so that the filling is covered. Then fold the bottom up to cover the filling as well. Gently roll from bottom to top. 
  6. Brush the top edge of the egg roll wrapper with the egg wash and press it to seal.
  7. Place a few eggrolls seam side down into the preheated air fryer. Brush the tops of the egg rolls lightly with egg wash and then spray them with olive oil spray. 
  8. Cook as directed until golden brown and crisp. Continue cooking the egg rolls in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket. Serve the eggrolls immediately, garnished with green onion and with sweet chili sauce for dipping.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH AIR FRYER EGG ROLLS

The great thing about the Air Fryer is that there is no need to wait for the Air Fryer to preheat. So you can quickly cook multiple dishes in one sitting.

We think Air Fryer Orange Chicken would be a great compliment to these egg rolls with a big pot of Air Fryer Fried Rice. Don’t forget the chopsticks!

HOW LONG DO YOU COOK EGG ROLLS IN THE AIR FRYER?

Cook these Air Fryer Egg Rolls in the air fryer for 8 minutes on one side, flip them over, and bake them for an additional 3-5 minutes on the other side, until golden brown and crisp.

CAN YOU AIR FRY FROZEN EGG ROLLS?

Absolutely! Check out this recipe for Air Fried Frozen Egg Rolls to learn how.

HOW DO YOU GET CRISPY EGG ROLLS IN THE AIR FRYER?

In order to achieve super crispy egg rolls, your first need to make sure you seal the wrapper properly. We use an egg wash along the edges when sealing to ensure it doesn’t come apart while cooking.

The next tip is don’t over crowd the basket. Cook the egg rolls in batches if needed.

And that last tip is to flip the egg rolls over halfway through cooking and spray again with oil.

WHAT SAUCE SHOULD I DIP EGG ROLLS IN?

We use sweet chili sauce in the pork and cabbage mixture, but it is also a great dipping sauce. We think they would taste incredible with this Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Sauce too!

STORAGE TIPS

Refrigerator: The egg rolls can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat, place the eggs rolls in the air fryer at 350°F for 1 minute. Flip the egg rolls over and cook them for 1 more minute, or until completely heated through.

Freezer: Place egg rolls on a baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Then transfer the egg rolls to an air tight container and freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, place the egg rolls in the air fryer, spray with oil, and cook for 2-3 minutes at 375ºF/190ºC until fully heated through.
