Egg Rolls Recipe Video:

We love recreating our favorite restaurant dishes like Chow Mein, easy Stir Fry, and of course Chinese egg rolls. Watch the video tutorial and you’ll realize these are easier than you think.

This is our favorite egg roll filling with a well-seasoned blend of pork, rice noodles, mushrooms, and veggies. My mother learned how to make these in culinary school and taught me to make them. Growing up, we enjoyed her big stacks of freshly made egg rolls and they always disappeared fast. Thankfully this recipe makes a big batch so you can freeze a bunch for later.

The Best Egg Roll Wrappers:

The Key to an authentic egg roll is in the wrapper. It will make all the difference and is worth the effort to find the right ones.

  • BUY Frozen Egg Roll Wrappers – the right kind of wrappers which are super thin and crisp up beautifully when fried are sold frozen.
  • Suggested Brands – the ones that are available in our local Asian market are “Spring Home”, “Wei Chuan,” or “Little Chef.” They are about 8″x8″ in size. So long as they are the frozen variety, they will work.
  • AVOID Refrigerated Egg Roll Wrappers – they are starchy, thicker, create a bubbly unattractive exterior when fried, and do not stay crisp, but soften quickly. I share examples of this in the video tutorial above.
  • Where to Buy: Some grocery stores carry Egg Roll wrappers in the freezer section, but I had to find a local Asian market store to get them. Since they are frozen, you can stock up your freezer.

Spring Roll Vs. Egg Roll:

Some of the egg roll wrapper packagings will say “spring roll” which is used interchangeably with “egg roll.” They are the same thing.

Ingredients for egg rolls with spring roll or egg roll wrappers

Can I Substitute the Meat?

Our go-to filling is Pork because it is naturally very flavorful, but you can make these vegetarian by omitting the meat or substitute with different proteins:

  • Ground turkey
  • Ground chicken (dark meat is better)
  • Chopped shrimp

How to Wrap Egg Rolls:

Wrapping an egg roll is really simple and you will be wrapping like a pro in no time. Here is a quick visual reference. The important points to remember are:

  1. Do not over-stuff (1/4 cup filling is all you need)
  2. Keep a tight roll from start to finish
  3. Seal the edge with egg wash

Tips for the Best Egg Rolls:

Here is our best advice for making egg rolls that will impress everyone.

  • Keep Wrappers Moist – work with one sheet at a time and keep the remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel at all times to prevent them from drying out.
  • Roll tightly to prevent oil from seeping into the egg roll
  • Keep Oil at 350˚F – If the temperature drops too low, the egg rolls soak up more oil. If it’s too hot, they will darken too quickly.
  • Fry in Batches – adding too many rolls at once will drop the temperature of the oil.
  • Cool on a wire rack – the exterior will stay crispy all around if you cool them on a rack instead of paper towels.
  • Cover finished rolls with a sheet of plastic wrap to prevent drying out.

How to Freeze Egg Rolls:

Egg rolls can be frozen cooked or uncooked. I find it is easier to fry all of them at once then freeze and reheat quickly when the craving strikes.

  • To Freeze Fried Egg Rolls: cool to room temperature, put them in a large freezer-safe zip bag, and pop them in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, I toast them in the air fryer until they are hot and crispy. Microwaving works but the shell won’t be crispy. You can also re-crisp in the oven.
  • Freezing Uncooked Egg Rolls – to keep them from sticking together, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer-safe bag. You can fry frozen uncooked egg rolls without thawing, just add an extra 1 to 2 minutes to the frying time.

How to Serve Egg Rolls:

Egg rolls are typically served warm or at room temperature as an appetizer with a sauce. We love pairing them with simple Asian sauces like sweet chili sauce, or a sweet teriyaki sauce.

I would love to hear about your favorite way to serve egg rolls in the comments.

Skill Level: Easy/Medium
Cost to Make: $18-$22
Keyword: egg rolls, pork egg roll
Cuisine: Asian, Chinese
Course: Appetizer
Calories: 130
Servings: 40 egg rolls

Ingredients

  • 40 frozen egg roll or spring roll wrappers , (8"x8"), thawed*
  • 3 oz vermicelli rice noodles , (Chinese angel hair rice sticks)
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 8 oz mushrooms, brown or white
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, grated or cut into matchsticks
  • 4 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp salt, or to taste, (divided)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Peanut oil or Canola Oil for frying, (2-3 inches of oil)
  • 1 egg, (beaten) for sealing eggrolls

Instructions

  1. Place noodles in a large heatproof bowl and pour steaming hot water over the noodles. Separate the noodles by pulling them apart with forks and let it rest 5-7 minutes to soften until tender. Rinse with cold water to cool them down then drain really well. Chop the rice noodles to about 1-inch pieces on a cutting board and transfer to a large mixing bowl. 

  2. Place a deep skillet over medium/high heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil and saute ground pork until cooked through and season with 1/2 tsp salt. Transfer to the mixing bowl with noodles. 

  3. In the same skillet, add 2 Tbsp oil, sliced mushrooms, diced onions, and shredded carrots.  Sautee until softened (5-6 minutes) then add 4 cups cabbage and sautee just until wilted (2 minutes). Season with 1/2 tsp salt and transfer to the mixing bowl with the noodles. 

  4. Season egg roll mixture with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce, and 1 tsp sesame oil. Since the filling is fully cooked, taste it, and add more seasoning to taste. Drain any excess liquid from the filling if present.

  5. Peel back 1 egg roll wrapper and place it in a diamond shape on a clean work surface. Keep remaining egg roll wrappers covered with a damp paper towel to keep them from drying out. Add 1/4 cup of filling onto the bottom third of the wrapper. 

  6. Fold the bottom corner over the filling and tuck underneath. Roll tightly towards the center then fold in the sides, roll again then brush the last flap lightly with beaten egg and roll to seal. Repeat with remaining egg rolls. Keep the formed egg rolls covered with plastic wrap so they don’t dry out. 

  7. Heat oil in a dutch oven or fryer to 350˚F. Fry 5-7 egg rolls at a time for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Egg rolls should sizzle when they are in the oil. Keep the temperature of the oil between 340-350˚F while frying. Transfer to a wire rack and cool 15 minutes before serving with your favorite sauce.

Recipe Notes

*Thaw packaged egg roll wrappers at room temperature 45 minutes before using. We recommend frozen brands like "Spring Home" "Wei Chuan" or "Little Chef." We found them in our local Asian market store. 

Nutrition Disclosure: oil content is estimated at 1 tsp oil per egg roll.

    These are spring rolls, not egg rolls. Even the package says spring roll wrappers. And because they require the use of vermicelli instead of cabbage they are Vietnamese spring rolls. Very tasty, but not egg rolls.

      Hi Debbie, I usually just reheat them in the air fryer. An Air Fryer will work, though; If I recall correctly, I think it was 350˚F for 5-7 minutes, turning halfway. It depends on the air fryer. Remove them when they are heated through and crispy. If you experiment with making these baked eggrolls, we’d love to hear your feedback.

    Hi Natasha!
    I love your recipes- even turned my sister on to your site and she loves your recipes, too!
    I want to fix these with Shrimp, need your opinion on whether I should cook the shrimp a little- just a little- before filling the egg rolls or if you think the 5 minutes in the oil will cook the shrimp enough? Thinking about using large diced shrimp pieces in the filling. What do you think?

      Hi Teresa, I bet this would be great with shrimp! I would recommend cooking them first. Shrimp cooks rather quickly; add shrimp in a single layer and sauté 2 min per side or until cooked through.

    Hi Natasha: Love your recipes.
    I have tried your spring rolls recipe but I can’t find the 8″ wrappers. The ones that I found were only 6″ and they are not big enough to put a 1/4 cup of filling so I find there isn’t enough filling in the 6″. Where do you buy yours?

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    I am still making and sharing these rolls, (a year after making them for the first time), we love them and ALWAYS have some in the freezer for snacks or as an accompaniment to a meal. I have reheated frozen and thawed rolls in my air fryer and they taste just great. A tip for someone not wanting to spend so long at once prepping and cooking on the same day, I do all my prepping and measuring the day before. Works for me! Thank you Natasha 😘

    (I could not get my picture to attach.)
    I like to cook and your egg roll recipe sounded really good so caught my attention. I made these and they were, as you said, very delicious!

    To be honest, making them requires several hours —lots of prep time and then cooking 44 of them in small batches also took time.
    I shared them with neighbors and they also enjoyed them; in fact, one said they were the best she’d had.
    I ate a few immediately after cooking and they were very crisp and filling. I reheated some in my toaster oven after defrosting and they got crispy again and were still very good. The filling, however, softened slightly and therefore “shrank” just a little from the additional cooking.
    I look forward to eating the ones in my freezers
    and thanks for sharing your recipe!!!😋

    These are seriously delish. I probably would have not tried except for the good reviews. I downsized to 10 egg rolls. The balance of all ingredients are balanced perfectly. Will make again. Heads up that takes a bit of prep work to cut everything up to be ready to mix & cook & watch while cooking in oil & keeping an eye on the oil temp.

      Hi Donna, If reheating in the oven, I would suggest doing so over higher heat to re-crisp. We reheated some the other day in the air fryer, and they turned shatteringly crisp, just like the day we fried them.

    I LOVE this recipe. I make it often, but just stop before the wrapping/frying step. The filling is just so tasty on its own! Plus frying scares me and makes such a mess. I’ll have to do it at some point though, because I bet these are the best eggrolls ever!

      Hi, Melanie! Yes, you should definitely keep going and try these wrapped and fried. They really are so good. But I totally agree, the filling is heavnly all on its own!

      Try air frying them! They’re just as good as frying without the calories.

    Hi Natasha. I have made these several times and switch to shrimp in placed of pork. Also I air fried the last time I made them. I brushed a lil olive oil on both sides sprayed the air fryer and cooked at 400 for 8 minutes flipped after 4 minutes. They came out excellent freeze well and reheat well. Thanks so much for this amazing recipe

    I’ve been making egg rolls, wontons, hum bao and the like for many years and I want to say this was a GREAT recipe! Your video and tips were very clear and helpful. I had a few “skins” left over so I filled them with scrambled eggs, left over ham and bacon and some cheese & made breakfast egg rolls! Thank you! Love your recipes!

    Saw the video on YouTube, and it looked easy. So I bought the stuff made these tonight. For the first time I think they turned out great.

    I learned that they wrap easier than you may expect. The wrappers are stretchy and forgiving. The egg wash on the last “tab” is enough to seal them.

    Also, this recipe didn’t make 40 for us. I got slightly more than half of that, but we like more filling in our rolls. The wrappers can be refrozen according to the package, so we’ll see how they hold up to making more in a few days.

    Seasoning. Use more than you expect to need. Tasting the mixture is very important, but as the filling “marries” together the level of seasoning seemed to drop. Next time I may add some 5 spice, or maybe miso.

    Still, these were a win in my book.

    Hi Natasha! The first time I made these exactly according to your recipe and they were delish! This time I’ll add some grated garlic and ginger and some bean sprouts. Maybe bean sprouts would be a good substitute for people who don’t like mushrooms???

      Hi Sharon, I have not tested this. You can give it a try. Bean sprouts can turn brown and wilt very easily though so just keep that in mind and consume them fairly quickly. Good luck!

        Hi again! I tried the changes: I added 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger and a big handful of beansprouts, otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. The bean sprouts did not turn brown and are of a similar consistency as the cabbage and other veggies. I used toasted sesame oil instead of plain sesame oil. The result is very delicious! We loved Sweet Thai Chili Sauce for dipping. Note to self: Next time (and there definitely will be a next time) I will add the bean sprouts after the cabbage has wilted a little bit. Thank you, Natasha, for another wonderful recipe.

    I made these for new years eve. I made filling ahead of time. I had trouble peeling my spring rolls wrappers. They were tearing. I end making my spring rolls little too big. I didn’t end up with 40. More like 25. My electric fryer was being temperamental also. I Need more practice making these. They did taste really good. Had mine with sweet chili sauce. Thanks 😊

    A spring roll wrapper is not the same as an egg roll wrapper. A spring roll wrapper will render a crispy, light pastry; an egg roll wrapper a bubbled, eggy one which will go soft sooner.

          Hi Irina, that will work. If reheating in the oven, I would suggest doing so over higher heat to re-crisp or even better in an air fryer. We reheated some the other day in the air fryer, and they turned shatteringly crisp, just like the day we fried them.

    This was my first attempt at making egg rolls and of course my first few I ended up ripping little holes in the wrapper so in the air fryer they went. They need about
    8 – 10 mins to cook so I am just going to be freezing uncooked egg rolls and air fry as I want them. So I would imagine the calorie count would be way down as they are not fried in oil Win Win
