Recipes Using Egg Roll Wrappers

Edible wrappers are great for making traditional egg rolls at home, but there are other recipes using egg roll wrappers too that are fabulous appetizer ideas too. Use store bought wrappers to stuff with filling other than cabbage. Think outside of the box for ideas like our ground beef egg rolls, dessert style and more!

Have you tried pizza or sloppy joes fried rolls?? Seriously, they are just a few of our favorite non traditional recipes that are so easy to make! Here are the top 10 recipes using egg roll wrappers you can try. (affiliate links present)

Egg Roll Wrapper Filling Ideas

If you want to go all out you can make homemade egg roll wrappers but honestly I wouldn’t even attempt that. Store bought is my style. Now there are a few variations of these too. Typically you buy the squares but there are thinner options to make Air Fryer Spring Rolls too.

You don’t only have to fill these with vegetables and ground sausage like at the restaurants. You really can fill with taco meat, pulled pork, make sloppy joe egg rolls or even make them into desserts with a sweet filling. We have a few favorite fun finger food wraps for you here.

Great sloppy joe egg roll recipe!!

What to do with a lot of eggroll wrappers?

We will give you a lot of filling ideas here but you will start to think of your own once you try a few below. Think of your favorite meal. Love Mexican food on Tuesdays? Use the meat you would normally stuff into hard shells to make Taco rolls instead this week! You can make cherry cheesecake egg rolls for dessert after that for a complete meal using these!

Yes desserts are oh so good too and a cheap treat your kids can help make too. You can do the frying but rolling up the Peach Cobbler Egg Rolls is easy enough and they will love being involved.

Here are asian bean rolls. If you love all the salty traditional flavors of that area you are going to love these. Easy to make vegetarian too they’re flexible in that way.

What is the difference between egg roll wrappers and wonton wrappers?

The size really. I mean you can make traditional air fryer egg rolls not frozen but if you wanted to make bite size versions of any of these you could use the won ton versions for sure. You can wrap the same way, teeny tiny or use water to seal at the top like a little package like dumpling style.

What are egg roll wrappers made of?

Flour, water, egg and salt is what is in the cooked version and rather simple to make. You can also find these ready made in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores.

What can I use instead of egg roll wrappers?

If you absolutely cannot find any, or make them yourself you could use phyllo dough. This is usually bought frozen and once defrosted has layers of thin sheets of paper thin edible sheets. I have used this to make our air fryer baked brie.

What are Some Non Traditional Egg Roll Fillings?

Ok so this is how to make dessert egg rolls of all different kinds, they are fabulous with a can of pie filling inside and just that if you want something fast. Will certainly be a hit with the kids and they can help you prepare them too! Spread some nutella and 1/2 a banana inside for a fresh fruit option.

Another non traditional version comes from Housewife Eclectic and are buffalo wing style! Want them a bit smaller? Just use wonton wrappers with the same inners and you’re set!

Then use your egg roll wrappers to make mozzarella sticks, by wrapping string cheese sticks with these as the outsides, fried to a golden crispy!! Pizza egg rolls are a fabulous appetizer…..or sometimes we just call them dinner!

AMAZING pizza egg rolls my kids Love for dinner...ok me and my hubby are in love with them too. SO easy too!

Sauces and Dips

You can serve them up on a baking sheet with a TON of fun sauces for dipping. Especially if you are serving a crowd for a party this can be a fun interactive charcuterie board of sorts. Lay the sauce choices in small ramekins labeled with a spoon inside. Guests can spoon their favorite Egg Roll Sauce on their plate and enjoy. Other ideas are;

  1. Popeyes Sweet Heat Sauce is better than sweet and sour
  2. Soy sauce
    • add a bit of wasabi for spice
    • or Sriracha will do the trick too
  3. Fry sauce is fun to try
  4. Bang bang sauce is great
