There is nothing quite like an Air Fryer Cheesy Ham & Pickle Egg Rolls. This includes a great slice of honey-baked ham and Pepper Jack Cheese, along with a pickle. You get a quick sandwich or appetizer all wrapped in an egg roll.
If you ever ate a Ham and Pickle Roll Up, this is my take on it. I used to have them smothered in cream cheese, and my mom always served them with a hearty helping of horseradish. They were delicious and very easy to make.
These are a great and fun lunch for the entire family. I surprised my kids today while they were doing virtual school.

What Do You Need To Make Cheesy Ham & Pickle Egg Rolls

How To Make Air Fryer Cheesy Ham & Pickle Egg Rolls
In the center of the egg roll wrapper, add the sliced deli ham, your cheese and a pickle spear.
Use a pastry brush or your finger and wet the exterior of the egg roll wrapper.
Spray your air fryer basket. Roll your egg rolls up, and place them into the air fryer basket. Spray with a bit of cooking spray, so they crisp up. Set the temperature to 360 degrees F, air fryer setting for 8-10 minutes, flipping and spraying again with cooking spray.
MORE TIPS FOR THE BEST RESULTS:
- For best results for this recipe, really make sure that your pickles are dried. I leave them for a couple of minutes on a paper towel. You want to drain them. Otherwise, the egg roll wrapper will be saturated with pickle juice.
- Save the pickle juice that drains, which makes a great brine for chicken. (This Chick-Fil-A)
- I spray cooking spray in my basket, so the egg rolls do not stick to eh basket. There is nothing worse than egg rolls that stick.
- Do not crowd the basket. Otherwise, they will not cook evenly. An air fryer works by circulating hot air around the basket.
