What is an Air Fryer?

An air fryer is a countertop appliance that is so easy to use! (I have this air fryer and use it pretty much every day).

Air fryers cook by circulating hot air around the food, kind of like a convection oven to the max!

They have a variety of settings to produce varying levels of crispness without lots of fat. The air fryer makes these homemade egg rolls turn out perfectly crispy – just like this deep-fried version only with far less oil!

How to Make Air Fryer Egg Rolls

It’s easy to make your own egg rolls at home! Because the egg rolls crisp up quickly, the meat should be pre-cooked as it won’t have time to cook through in the air fryer.

  1. Cook ground pork with garlic and ginger until no pink remains (per recipe below).
  2. Add coleslaw mix (or cabbage) and cook until tender.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and spoon into the center of each wrapper.
  4. Wrap and spray with cooking spray. Cook until crisp.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce like sweet and sour for a tasty appetizer.

How to Wrap Egg Rolls

With these 4 simple steps, it’s easy to wrap the perfect egg roll!

  • Lay each wrapper out separately.
  • Drop filling in the center of each one.
  • Fold up the bottom (diagonally), then fold in the sides.
  • Roll closed and seal with a little bit of water mixed with flour.

What To Do With Leftover Egg Rolls

To freeze: Air fryer egg rolls can be frozen before or after they are cooked, for a perfect snack or easy lunch. Simply place the assembled rolls on a baking sheet and then freeze them. Once frozen, place in a zippered bag with the date on them.

To reheat: Add to an unheated air fryer. Turn it on to 350°F and cook 4-6 minutes or just until heated through. Air fryers can vary so be sure to check your egg rolls early to ensure they don’t burn or overcook.
