How to Make Cheeseburger Egg Rolls in the Air Fryer Step by Step
Make the Filling: Add 1 pound of 80% lean ground beef to a medium skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring often, until the meat is browned, about 5 minutes. Once the beef is cooked, drain the grease from the skillet. Add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ teaspoon of ground paprika, and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt to the beef. Stir to combine and set aside until the mixture is cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, stir the cooled beef, 1 cup of freshly shredded cheddar cheese, 1 sliced green onion, and ¼ cup of chopped dill pickles together.
Prepare the Egg Rolls: In a small bowl, whisk 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon of water together to create an egg wash. Set aside. Place 10 egg roll wrappers on a clean work surface. Add about ¼ cup of filling to the center of each wrapper.
Roll the Egg Rolls: Working one egg roll wrapper at a time, brush the egg wash around the edges of the wrapper to create a seal. Roll the wrapper into an egg roll by folding the bottom point over the filling, then folding the left and right points into the center, and finally rolling it upward to seal. Repeat until all egg rolls are rolled and sealed.
Preheat the Air Fryer: While you assemble the egg rolls, preheat the air fryer to 400°F for 5 minutes. Lightly spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray and place as many egg rolls as will fit in the basket, seam-side down.
Cook the Egg Rolls: Brush the tops of the egg rolls with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds and sea salt, if desired. Cook for 5 minutes. Flip the egg rolls and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Repeat this process until all egg rolls are cooked. Serve warm with the dipping sauce of choice.
