Description

Healthier Air Fryer Egg Rolls contain a fraction of the fat and calories found in traditional deep fried pork eggs rolls. Simple to make, requiring 8 ingredients and about 15 minutes prep.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Tbs Sesame Oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1” ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice
  • 2.5 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 lb. ground turkey or pork
  • 1 12 oz.package coleslaw mix
  • 16 egg roll wrappers (located in refrigerated section of grocery)
  • cornstarch slurry (1 Tbsp cornstarch + 1 Tbsp water mixed)
  • olive oil spray

Instructions

FOR THE FILLING: 

  1. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and sauté for about 1 minute.
  2. Add the Chinese five-spice, soy sauce, rice vinegar and ground meat to the skillet. Use a wooden spoon to break apart the meat and ensure that the spices are evenly distributed throughout. Cook until meat is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the coleslaw mix and continue stirring until veggies are tender. Remove pan from heat and set aside.

ASSEMBLE EGG ROLLS:

  1. Lay an egg roll wrapper onto a clean flat surface. Place filling diagonally in on wrapper.
  2. Fold the bottom corner over filling; roll tightly half-way to cover the filling.
  3. Fold in both sides tightly against the filling. Use the cornstarch slurry to moisten the edges of the last remaining flap.
  4. Roll up and seal last corner.
  5. Place egg roll seam side down on a baking sheet and cover with a moist paper towel. Repeat process for each egg roll.

TO COOK:

  1. Lightly spray the air fryer basket and the egg rolls with the olive oil spray. Arrange egg rolls into a single layer in the prepared basket (you will probably have to cook 2-3 batches depending on the size of your air fryer).
  2. Cook at 370 degrees for 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking process. Keep an eye on your egg rolls as each air fryer cooks a little differently and your egg rolls will burn quickly. 

Notes

TO FREEZE: These egg rolls are freezer-friendly. Cook according to recipe directions and allow to cool. Once cooled, arrange egg rolls  into a single layer on a parchment covered baking sheet and freeze for 3 hours.  Remove frozen egg rolls from freezer and store in an airtight freezer bag for up to 2 months.  

TO SERVE FROM FROZEN: Place frozen egg rolls back into the air fryer at 370 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
