Ninja Foodi Frozen Egg Rolls

Ingredients what??? Y’all, you just need to grab your favorite type in the freezer section of your grocery store and you’re set. If you haven’t cooked right out of the freezer you’re in for a treat. We first made air fryer frozen burritos, game changer! Then we went on…. I will say I am very particular when I choose my favorites.

I like chicken and not just veggies inside. Smaller is better than really large varieties because they cook thru more evenly, and easier to handle. There are tons of brands out there. Minh egg rolls and Ling Ling are most commonly found. There are so many egg roll wrapper recipes but this one is the easiest because they’re already made!

  • Just know there is a BIG difference when it comes to how big each one is.
  • Timing is for “regular” sizes but your first time I would stick to our timing and go from there.

If yours are quite a bit bigger and don’t get quite warm enough for you, then remember next time to increase the cook time maybe 2 more minutes.

How Long to Cook Frozen Egg Rolls in Air Fryer

#1 tip when cooking most frozen foods in an air fryer is to leave them in the hot basket for a few minutes once the time is up. This will allow the inside to warm up as the outside cooks much quicker of course.

How do you cook frozen egg rolls?

Well typically you’d throw them in the microwave or the oven. Pan fry it for some crisp after. NOW you can make things like these and air fryer corn dogs that are WAY better than the “old fashioned” ways.

This is how to make them as good as deep fried but air fried is less fat but still golden brown on the outside.

Are frozen egg rolls good?

Of course homemade is always best BUT these are a close second. Some brands are also better than others. I like those that are smaller with the most filling possible.

Can I cook frozen egg rolls in air fryer?

YES! Everything frozen tastes better in this hot air kitchen appliance. The outside gets way crispier than even in the oven.

How long do I cook frozen egg rolls?

Microwave is the fastest way, but not crunchy at all. Air fryer egg rolls just take 10 minutes, way faster than waiting for the oven to preheat and cook.

Frozen Pork Egg Rolls in Air Fryer

You can choose vegetarian, chicken, pork or other types and still use this same timing. Unlike other things we’ve shared, like baked potatoes or frozen french fries there is NO olive oil required for these. I mean I guess if you really wanted them super duper crunchy at the end you could, but not necessary at all.

  1. Preheat air fryer to 380 degrees for 5 minutes.
  2. Put number of pieces you want into the basket in one layer, without overlapping.
  3. Set timer to 10 minutes and flip each one over after 5 minutes time.
  4. Once time is up leave them inside the basket, closed, for 5 minutes so the insides can continue to get warmer.
  5. Serve with dipping sauces of your choice.

Want to cook homemade air fryer egg rolls?? We have a recipe for that too. Of course home cooking takes a lot longer. You will need olive oil spray and egg roll wrappers for these, but you can really pack these full of goodness.

This was my first time having frozen egg-rolls and they cooked up perfect in the air fryer. They were nice and crispy and cooked up fast. I will definitely be making them again like this!
