Ingredients in Egg Rolls

We fill egg roll wrappers with all kinds of fillings from sweet to savory. In this recipe, love ground pork paired with ginger, garlic and veggies.

Ground Pork – This egg roll recipe uses ground pork but ground chicken or even finely chopped shrimp. Egg rolls are a great way to use up leftover bits of meat and veggies too.

Cabbage – You can finely chop cabbage and carrots but we use prepackaged coleslaw mix to save time. Slip in some chopped spinach, kale, or even some crunchy bean sprouts and water chestnuts!

Seasonings – A healthy dose of garlic and fresh ginger add a lot of flavor.

How to Make Egg Rolls

Egg rolls are super fun and easy to make:

  1. Make Filling: Brown the meat with ginger & garlic. Add cabbage and seasonings.
  2. Roll Egg Rolls: Place a few tablespoons of meat and coleslaw in each wrapper. Roll per the directions in the recipe below.
  3. Cook: Deep fry, air fry, or bake the egg rolls until crispy.

Bake, Fry, or Air Fry

Egg rolls can be baked, fried, or air fried. We find deep frying to give the crispiest crust but air frying is a close second. Egg rolls don’t get quite as crispy in the oven but they still taste amazing.

If baking or air frying be sure to generously oil the outside of the egg roll wrapper.

Make Ahead, Storage and Reheating

Keep leftover egg rolls covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat them in the oven or in the air fryer, or if there’s leftover filling, prepare it in a bowl in this fun recipe for egg roll in a bowl.

Freeze leftover egg rolls in a zippered bag for up to 4 weeks. Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.

Like most recipes with a crispy crust, these homemade egg rolls are best eaten right away when fried crisp.
