How Long Do You Cook A Frozen Egg Roll In An Air Fryer So It’s Crispy

How long do you cook a frozen egg roll in an air fryer so it’s crispy? Today we will explore the precise answer to that question. No oil is necessary to cook crispy, hot egg rolls in the air fryer without thawing them first.

A frozen egg roll cooked in an air fryer is a quick and easy dinner or appetizer I love. These can be paired with rice and fried vegetables for an easy and quick meal. To mix it up, I’m providing you with the cooking instructions for one normal-sized frozen egg roll, one mini egg roll, and even spring rolls!

How Long Do You Cook A Frozen Egg Roll In An Air Fryer

The simple answer is 8 – 10 minutes. To do this:

Set your air fryer to preheat to 380 degrees.

When you preheat your air fryer, you get that crispiness you love. Also, it allows the egg roll to cook while allowing the inside to heat up evenly while maintaining the perfect texture on the outside.

Cook your egg rolls in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes in one layer without touching them.

It was not necessary for me to flip the frozen egg roll halfway through since it was still crisp on all sides. You can always make sure the insides are hot and fully cooked before removing them by using a thermometer such as the Kizen model I use. It is a technique I like to use when testing recipes to verify that everything is cooked to perfection.

You’re done! Remove the egg rolls

Take the egg rolls out of the air fryer, wait two to three minutes for them to cool, then enjoy, but eat carefully (they will still be hot).

Can I Use Any Brand Of Egg Rolls?

The following directions can be used with any kind of frozen egg roll. A few egg roll brands I have tried include:

  • Trader Joe’s
  • F. Chang’s frozen egg rolls
  • Tai Pei frozen egg rolls

And for spring rolls:

  • Marathon spring rolls, frozen
  • Costco vegetable spring rolls

Is Oil Needed To Cook Frozen Egg Rolls In An Air Fryer?

Not at all! Most frozen foods can be cooked in an air fryer without adding oil, including frozen egg rolls.

The oil in many frozen foods is enough to prevent food from drying out since they already contain oil for a variety of reasons.

To ensure your egg rolls cook up nicely and crisp, spritz them with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray whenever they are starting to look very dry. It can vary between brands and how they are originally prepared since I haven’t needed to do this with any of the frozen egg roll brands I’ve used.

Reheating Egg Rolls in the Air Fryer

Egg rolls from restaurants, takeout, and even frozen air fryer rolls can be reheated using this method!

  1. Prepare your air fryer by preheating it to 350 degrees. When reheating foods with an air fryer, I still recommend preheating it in order to create a snappy crunch that echoes how they tasted the day before.
  2. In an air fryer, cook the leftover egg rolls for about three minutes.
  3. You are now ready to eat your egg rolls! Remove them from the air fryer and eat!

How Do You Cook A Frozen Spring Rolls In An Air Fryer

Egg rolls and spring rolls have a similar appearance, but they’re different on the inside and out.

Spring rolls are generally made from either a rice or flour wrapper. The wrapper of this appetizer is thinner than that of an egg roll, making it a smaller appetizer.

Egg rolls are made with a wrapper containing eggs. It gives the texture and fullness a thicker appearance. Compared to typical spring rolls, these will appear larger.

In an air fryer, egg rolls cook differently than spring rolls because of their size. These directions work well for air frying frozen lumpia as well.

Here are the cooking instructions for air frying frozen spring rolls or lumpia:

Your air fryer needs to be preheated to 400° F.

The frozen spring rolls should be cooked for 7 to 8 minutes in the air fryer.

Enjoy your spring rolls after they have been air fried! These can be reheated in an preheated air fryer at 350 degrees for about 3 minutes.

How To Make Air Fryer Mini Egg Rolls from Frozen

Making frozen mini eggs rolls is something you need to try! The crunch from the wrapper makes up for the fact that they’re so small. Simply:

  1. Prepare your air fryer by preheating it to 380 degrees.
  2. Prepare the frozen egg rolls by placing them in an air fryer and cooking for 5 to 7 minutes. They cook more quickly than regular egg rolls because they are smaller.
  3. You can then enjoy your mini egg rolls straight from the air fryer! Heat these for approximately 2 minutes at 350 degrees to reheat.

Conclusion

A frozen egg roll cooked in an air fryer is a quick and easy dinner or appetizer I love. These can be paired with rice and fried vegetables for an easy and quick meal. To mix it up, I’m providing you with the cooking instructions for one normal-sized frozen egg roll, one mini egg roll, and even spring rolls!

I hope the tips and recipes above was able to show you how to enjoy the perfect egg roll in between 8 – 10 minutes.
