How to Make Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°f if your air fryer needs to be preheated. Not all air fryers are the same. Mine doesn’t need to be preheated.
  2. Cook for 20 minutes at 400°f – turn them over after 10 minutes, half-way through the cooking time. This way you get perfectly even cooking!
  3. Add extra cooking time if you want your eggrolls crispier.

What Are Egg Rolls?

Egg rolls are a deep-fried appetizer served in Chinese restaurants in America. An egg roll is a cylindrical, savory roll with shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, chopped pork or chicken, and other fillings inside a thin wheat flour dough skin, which is fried in hot oil. Egg rolls are a finger food and typically dipped in duck sauce, soy sauce, plum sauce, sweet and sour sauce, garlic chili sauce or hot mustard.

Top Tips to Make The Best Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls

  • Brand matters!! We love Chung’s Brand egg rolls. Speaking from experience my best advice is don’t skimp. Don’t go for the cheapest brand on the shelf…with ONE exception. Safeway Signature Select store brand frozen egg rolls taste just like Chung’s!
  • Pork or vegetable is the best! I have not had a chicken egg roll that tasted good unless it was made from scratch.
  • Turn the egg rolls over halfway through the cooking time to get even, golden, crunchy, crispy goodness!
  • Serve immediately with a dipping sauce of your choice!
