Frozen Egg Rolls In The Air Fryer FAQs
Do I need to thaw frozen egg rolls before cooking?
No, you do not need to thaw frozen egg rolls before cooking, in fact, the egg rolls will cook more evenly if kept completely frozen until time to cook.
Do I have to add oil to my air fryer before cooking?
No. There it is not necessary to oil the air fryer basket beforehand because frozen egg rolls already have oil on them.
Can I use my oven instead of the air fryer for this recipe?
Yes! Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place frozen egg rolls on a greased cooking sheet and cook for 15 minutes or until outside is brown and crispy.
Can I use chicken egg rolls for this recipe?
Of course, any flavor egg roll may be used for this dish. Besides pork, chicken, beef, seafood, or plain vegetable egg rolls are all excellent options.
Can these egg rolls be made in the microwave?
Yes, however, I wouldn’t recommend it. Frozen egg rolls cooked in the microwave will be soggy and below par. If you don’t have an air fryer, I recommend using the oven instead of the microwave. Follow the package’s cooking instructions if you want to use the microwave.
Will larger egg rolls take longer to cook?
Yes. This recipe makes larger egg rolls. If you are using mini egg rolls, the cooking time will be decreased by a few minutes. Keep an eye on them at all times to ensure they do not burn.
These frozen egg rolls are a quick snack and one of my family’s favorite snacks when we are looking for something easy.
