Ingredients

  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • 2 cups scrambled eggs
  • 3 strips bacon {chopped}
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Instructions

Air Fryer Breakfast Egg Rolls Instructions

  • Assemble your egg rolls (see the rolling photos/instructions in the post).
  • Brush olive oil over the top of the egg rolls.
  • Brush olive oil on the basket of your air fryer. Place the egg rolls in the basket, seam side down, without letting them touch each other.
  • Bake at 360 degrees F for 7 minutes. Flip and bake for an additional 2 minutes.

Oven Baking Instructions

  • Place a baking rack on a foil-lined baking sheet. Liberally spray the rack with olive oil. 
  • Put the egg rolls seam side down on the baking rack and brush olive oil over the top.
  • Bake at 325 F for 12 minutes, and flip. Bake for an addition 8-12 minutes or until the egg rolls are nice and crispy without being burned.

Skillet Instructions

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes. 
  • Add enough avocado oil to cover the bottom of the skillet and let it heat for 1 minute.
  • Place the egg roll “seam side” down in the oil.
  • Cook it until that side is crispy and brown, and then flip. 
  • When finished cooking, place them on a plate lined with newspaper or paper towels to absorb the extra oil.

Notes

If you don’t want to cook these right away, place uncooked egg rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper, and freeze.  Then transfer to a freezer-proof bag or container. Do not thaw before cooking. You will need to add a few minutes to the cook time.
Get creative with your fillings, but saute any watery vegetables like zucchini before adding to the mixture.

  1. Dear Sarah,

    Love the idea of breakfast egg rolls! Long time egg roll and spring roll maker, but I only used traditional Chinese fillings. This is for sure is going on my next week’s grocery list.

    I have read your blog for years and finally decided to be more courageous (my goal for this year) and comment! I have always wanted to tell you that you are amazing, bold, courageous, and filled with goodness.

    Thank you for sharing the stories of your life!5 stars

    • It’s a fun change from the more traditional savory egg roll.

      Congrats on achieving your 2019 goal Kelly!! You’re doing awesome and I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

  2. These seem like the perfect breakfast option for my new one-handed breakfast theme (baby wants to be held ALL THE TIME. Adorable, but difficult to eat like that). Can’t wait to try!

    • Ohhhh, I get that. My youngest was the same way until 4 months. Do you have a carrier or a wrap so at least you can use two hands sometimes?

      • I use the carrier a lot while out of the house but haven’t much while home. I just bought a mesh ring sling though and am hoping to use that at home more. She’s started grabbing for things and I thought the sling would give her more arm movement. We had a wrap from the hospital in Norway but it was soooo hot. We needed it at the time (no baby gear on vacation!) but got rid of it when she was big enough for the carrier. 

  3. These look amazing! I’ve never used egg roll wrappers. Do you think rice roll wrappers would also work?
