Why Air Fry Egg Rolls?

Whether you’re looking for a healthy alternative to traditional deep-fried egg rolls or want to try something new, frozen egg rolls are great in the air fryer.

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks food by circulating hot air around it. The heat from the air cooks the food, giving it a crispy texture as you would get from frying it in oil. Air fryers are a healthy alternative to traditional deep-frying, and they’re also convenient because they don’t require any oil or butter.

Additionally, you can use an air fryer for cooking all sorts of foods, including chicken, fish, vegetables, and French fries.

Pro Tips:

  • Skip the defrost! The key to getting perfectly crispy and delicious egg rolls is to add them to the air fryer basket directly from the freezer.
  • Extra Crispy Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls. If you want them extra crispy, spray them with cooking spray a few times to get the outer layer flaky and delicious!
  • No need to preheat. Frozen foods cook better when you place them into a cold or room temperature air fryer basket.
  • Making Frozen Egg Rolls In The Air Fryer Oven: You can cook them in an air fryer or convection oven. They will take a little more time, but will be crispy!
  • Keep food from sticking. Spray your air fryer basket with cooking spray or line it with air fryer parchment paper, so the eggrolls don’t stick.
  • Don’t Crowd. Leave plenty of space around the food, so the hot air from the air fryer can perfectly cook your food.

Do You Need To Thaw Frozen Foods Before Air Frying?

For best results, I would always recommend keeping frozen foods frozen. This way, they perfectly cook up. You’ll need to deduct a few minutes off your cooking time when you air fry egg rolls if you thaw first.

What’s the difference between Egg Rolls and Spring Rolls?

Egg rolls and spring rolls are both popular Chinese appetizers. They’re both made with wrapper dough, but the egg roll wrappers are much thicker and are often dipped in egg first.

The fillings are different as well. Air fryer frozen egg rolls are typically stuffed with a pork and cabbage filling, while spring rolls often contain only vegetables. There are also uncooked spring rolls that may contain shrimp and are served cold.
