How to make frozen spring rolls in the air fryer
Making frozen spring rolls in the air fryer is so easy! Start by preheating your air fryer to 400 degrees F (204 degrees Celsius) on the air fryer setting for about 4 minutes. Preheating the air fryer is optional but helps decrease the overall cooking time.
Add the frozen spring rolls to the air fryer basket or tray.
Give the spring rolls space, and don’t put them too close to each other. The air fryer works by circulating hot air around the food, so if pieces are too close together, they won’t cook evenly. This is why it’s not recommended to stack the spring rolls.
Spray generously with cooking spray or olive oil spray. Set the timer for 10 minutes. Flip halfway during the cooking process.
Depending on the type of spring rolls you get, they come in different shapes and sizes. Because of this, cook time can vary. Adjust your cooking times according to the size of your spring rolls. You may also need to adjust your cooking time according to the air fryer model you have.
Spring rolls are done when heated throughout, golden brown, and crispy. Be careful when removing them, as they will be hot. You can use tongs for easy removal.
Plate, serve, and enjoy!
