Frozen egg rolls in air fryer – Tips

Here you have some of the very useful and essential tips to make the perfect egg rolls!

  • To end up with crispier egg rolls, air fry them for an additional 2 minutes. You can also leave them in the pan for a few minutes.
  • Cook frozen, without thawing.
  • Make sure you don’t overlap your egg rolls in the air fryer basket or pan.
  • Remember to shake/flip your egg rolls as directed in the recipe.
  • If you are cooking in multiple batches, the cooking time may decrease as your air fryer is getting hotter. (You may need to reduce the cooking time)
  • Remember to take a peek at your egg rolls from time to time as they are cooking to prevent them from overcooking or burning.
  • Smaller egg rolls will take less time to cook.
  • You don’t need to spray the basket or the egg rolls with oil.
  • It is recommended to put the egg rolls in a single layer in the basket with room between them so the air can circulate.
  • If you would like the egg rolls really crispy, lightly spray with olive oil. Be sure not to use aerosol sprays which can hurt the coating on your basket.
