Air  Fryer: How to Cook Frozen Egg Rolls or Spring Rolls

We’re so surprised how good air fried frozen egg rolls are and they’re crispy on the outside and fantastic on the inside. Buying pre-made frozen egg rolls or spring rolls is a great way to enjoy this Asian appetizer within a few minutes. They’re quick to re-heat in the air fryer and the results are fantastic!  So popping them in the air fryer for a few minutes is a great way to have a meal in just a few minutes! Just as good as take-out! All recipe details are in the recipe box below.

Do you Need to Thaw the Egg Rolls First?

No. You don’t need to thaw them first. The outside of the egg rolls or spring rolls will cook up crispiest if frozen. Take them straight from the freezer, put them in the air fryer and cook. Air fryer frozen egg rolls are the easiest and so good.

Other Tips for Cooking Frozen Eggs Rolls in the Air Fryer

  • You don’t have to add extra oil because there’s already oil in the spring rolls when they were originally cooked.
  • Fill the basket/tray in just a single layer. Don’t stack the egg rolls.
  • Initially cook at a lower temperature to heat through the center, then increase heat to crisp up the outside.
  • See recipe box below for all the details.
  • Pro-Tip: here’s our favorite tools to help make air frying easier:
Evo Oil Sprayer
Evo Oil Sprayer

We LOVE Evo Oil Sprayers. Not the prettiest, but they’re functional and spritz oil great! They don’t clog up like many others we’ve bought. There’s different styles, but all seem to have the same great spray head. Works great for grilling!

8.5" Square Blue Silicone Mat
Perforated Silicone Mat

There are Square Mats & Round Mats. These perforated non-stick silicone mats are used to cook food in your air fryer or steamer to minimize sticking. Holes allow hot circulating air to cook the food & keeps the food from sticking.

Perforated Parchment Paper

Parchment sheets are great for your air fryer or bamboo steamer (food tends to stick most on wire basket or tray). Choose from different sizes, shapes, white and brown (unbleached). Holes allow air to cook food evenly.

Air Fryer Frozen Egg Rolls

There's several things which affect how the frozen egg rolls cook. They all vary in size, thickness, type of filling, thickness & type of wrapper so you’ll have to adjust timing. For best and even cooking, don't overcrowd the basket. Fill just an even single layer. Cook in batches if needed.
We found it best to initially cook at a lower temperature to heat through the center. Then finish for a few minutes hotter, to crisp the outside of the egg rolls.
All air fryers are different and some cook much hotter than others. Once you cook your first batch, you’ll know more of what works for your model of air fryer and size of food. These were tested on basket style air fryers. Read more recipe notes below the recipe. Nutrition will vary depending on individual egg roll types.

Air Frying Tips and Notes:
  1. No Oil Necessary. Cook Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  2. Shake or turn as needed. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket.
  3. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple batches back to back, the following batches may cook a little quicker. 
  4. Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, they might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
  5. Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss as directed in recipe.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
