Loaded Mashed Potato Egg Rolls. Crispy egg rolls stuffed with creamy loaded mashed potatoes and gooey cheese! This may be my favorite egg roll recipe yet!
These are one of the most delicious things ever… I probably could’ve eaten all of them myself!
You can use leftover mashed potatoes (is that even a thing?? leftover potatoes?), packaged potatoes or even just boil up a batch of potatoes and mash them! I use cheddar because I love the flavor, any cheese will work of course, you could even use 1/2 a cheese string if it’s all you have on hand!
Be sure to try to seal the cheese in the potatoes and make sure the wrapper is completely sealed. This will help avoid leaking and splattering.
Loaded Mashed Potato Egg Rolls
- 2 cups prepared or leftover mashed potatoes
- ¼ cup bacon bits or crumbled cooked bacon
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 8 sticks of cheese approx. 3″ long by ¼″ square
- 8-10 Egg Roll Wrappers
- Combine cooled mashed potatoes, bacon bits, green onions, egg, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
- Wrap about 3 tablespoons of the mashed potato mixture around each stick of cheese trying to ensure it is completely covered (this helps prevent leaks).
- Lay each egg roll wrapper out with a corner pointing towards you. Place your mashed potato and cheese filling in the center of each wrapper. Fold in the sides and roll the wrapper tightly. Use a dab of water to secure the tip of the wrapper. (If you don’t know how to roll an egg roll it usually shows on the package).
- Note: It is important to make sure the sides of the wrapper are tucked in holding the ingredients in. If they leak, it can cause splattering.
- Preheat oil to 350°F. Fry each egg roll for about 4-5 minutes or until browned and crispy.
- Serve hot with sour cream for dipping.

Do you know if these can be frozen, prior to cooking? Kind of like a meal-prep concept, to have on hand in the freezer? Thank you Holly.
Yes, these can be made ahead and frozen. Enjoy Francesca!
Can these be made in the air fryer?
I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure Lindsay, but I think it should work just fine! If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!
I was looking for something to do with my leftover Christmas mashed potatoes (we almost never have leftover mashed potatoes) and I came across this recipe. I had no egg roll wrappers so I made empanada dough, rolled it very thin and proceeded with this recipe without the green onions since I had none. I used onion powder, a bit of thyme and Seasonall. What a hit. My son can’t wait for me to make them again.
Can’t wait to try these. Can they be made in the airfryer?
We haven’t tried them in the air fryer, but I’m sure that’d be delish! Let us know if you try it Kay!
Super delicious! Easy to make with the cheese sticks! When i first made these i just put shredded cheese in the potatoes not good. I’ve never done egg rolls before but the stick cheese made it so much easier to roll! Definitely a 5 star dish!
It makes it to much easier Stephanie! Glad you enjoyed them.
I just tried this for the first time at it was delicious. It couldn’t be easier to make, the hardest part is having left over mashed potatoes to make it!
I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe!
