Can you make them ahead of time?
Yes! If you are planning to serve these at a party, you can certainly get ahead of things by rolling the egg rolls ahead of time. You can roll them a day before and keep them covered in the fridge, then, just pop them into the air fryer when you are ready to serve.
Can you freeze them?
Yes, you can freeze eggs rolls, it’s best to freeze them once they are cooked, rather than raw. Let them cool, then freeze them solid on a baking sheet. Once frozen, store in a bag or container for up to 4 months.
You can reheat the rolls right from frozen in the air fryer at 350F for around 10 to 12 minutes, flipping halfway.
Other cooking methods
Air frying is hands down my favorite method for cooking these, they come out super crispy but without the need for oil.
You can deep fry them on the stovetop in hot oil til brown and crispy, or oven bake them at 425F for around 20 minutes.
- You can keep the fried egg rolls warm in a 250F oven for up to 30 minutes if you need to make them in batches!
- Don’t overfill the egg roll wrappers or you will have difficulty folding them.
- The egg rolls should be placed in a single layer in the air fryer basket, without touching, so that they get crispy all over.
