Cooked frozen egg rolls in air fryer are a great snack recipe with minimal effort and cooking time! Serve these with sour sauce or your favorite dipping sauce for a savory craving killer.
Golden brown air fryer egg rolls hit the spot when you’re in the mood for Chinese food. They take less than 15 minutes to make and they’re restaurant quality.
My family and I love Chinese food but it is hard to find some all of us can enjoy. I am gluten-free and It can be so hard to find gluten free Chinese food so we needed an easier and healthier alternative to deep fried egg rolls.
While I love our gluten free spring rolls, they are a fresher, healthier option. Sometimes you just need the fried version.
Air fried vegetable egg rolls are crispy, mess-free, and made in under 15 minutes. The perfect quick snack!

I’ve recently fell in love with all of the great recipes I can make with my air fryer! It’s seriously the best way to get dinner on the table in minutes. Air fryer ravioli has been another one of my favorite recipes lately.
I’ve also found the air fryer super helpful for breakfast foods as well. Mornings can be rushed which is why I turn to air fryer sausage patties and/or air fryer hash browns when I’m crunched for time.
From how to cook frozen chicken tenders in air fryer and dino nuggets air fryer instructions or these air fryer egg rolls, it is easy peasy to use the air fryer and there is no added fat needed. I also love making these air fryer Brussels sprouts to go with it!
Air Fryer vs. Oven
Cooking these crunchy egg rolls in the air fryer takes less cooking time, less mess, and gives you the best results. The air fryer makes your egg rolls extra crispy in a shorter amount of time.
Cooking in hot air is a faster alternative to the oven and a healthier alternative to deep frying! The whole family will appreciate a faster and healthier dinner. It’s also great for these air fryer fish sticks.
Gluten-Free Egg Rolls
Feel Good Foods is my favorite GF brand of egg rolls but you can use any type of rolls that you like. I know some people LOVE egg rolls from Trader Joes. You can also use mini egg rolls for a great appetizer but neither are gluten-free.
Pro tip: We like serving egg rolls with a side of gluten-free soy sauce and homemade sour sauce or sweet chili sauce. It’s the perfect sweet and savory combo!
Do you need to use oil?
Nope! You don’t need to add any extra oil or oil spray to these egg rolls because they already have enough fat in them. The excess fat on the outside of the egg rolls will prevent them from sticking to the air fryer basket.
Do I need to preheat the air fryer?
Nope again! The instructions in the recipe card for frozen egg rolls in air fryer are based off a non-preheated air fryer. If you’re making multiple batches, the cooking time may need to be reduced for the 2nd batch.
How long do you put frozen egg rolls in an air fryer?
For this easy recipe you’ll want to cook your egg rolls at 400 degrees f for 13 minutes or until fully cooked and crispy. Depending on what type of egg rolls you’re cooking, the time may vary by 1-3 minutes.
Tips for making them perfectly crispy
Cooking air fryer eggrolls is similar to cooking french fries. You want to make sure there is no freezer burn or excess moisture from freezing before placing in the bottom of the air fryer basket.
For perfectly crispy egg rolls, place egg rolls in a single layer of the air fryer basket and cook until golden brown.
How do you store leftover egg rolls?
Store leftover egg rolls similarly how you would store leftover spring rolls. An airtight container with a paper towel underneath your egg rolls will preserve freshness for up to 3-4 days.
