If you’ve never made fresh egg rolls at home, I’ve got to say that you’re missing out. Honestly, these appetizers are so delicious that it’s hard to find anyone that doesn’t like them. The only downside to eating egg rolls is that they are typically fried in a lot of oil, which makes them unhealthy. Thankfully, using an air fryer can get you healthy and quick egg rolls in no time. Making beautiful air fried egg rolls is all about using the right air fryer temperature and cook time. Many of my friends like to ask this. How long to cook egg rolls in air fryer? What temp to air fry egg rolls? Let’s cover them in this guide and hear tips on the recipe for making homemade egg rolls in the air fryer.
The best temperature to cook egg rolls in air fryer is 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When you cook egg rolls in an air fryer at 350, you should expect a golden brown egg roll that is crispy on the outside and full of delicious and savory fillings on the inside. Every bite should be filled with perfectly cooked meat and vegetables to really bring everything together. Add as many or as few ingredients as you want and make it your own!
Nobody likes having to wait to eat, so it’s great that an air fryer can really help to speed things up a little. It takes only 12 minutes to cook egg rolls in the air fryer at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. If you plan on making egg rolls in an air fryer, you don’t want to leave them in there for too long or else they might start to burn.

Egg rolls can be cooked at different temperatures without too many consequences, so feel free to experiment to find what works best for you. If you raise the temperature of your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, you will have nicely crisped egg rolls in about 7 or 8 minutes. This way will cook your egg rolls faster, but it might dry out the ingredients inside and cause burning.
If you lower the temperature of your air fryer to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, you will get very lightly crisped egg rolls in 16 to 18 minutes. Cooking at too low of a temperature will make it hard for your egg rolls to get crispy due to the moisture of the ingredients, plus it takes longer than at 350 degrees would with average results. So I don’t recommend you going too low on the air fryer temperature.

Go to the store and buy egg roll wraps, eggs, ground turkey (or beef, it’s up to you), shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, sesame seed oil, olive oil spray, and seasonings
Start by cooking your ground turkey in a pan until it’s brown. Once the meat is cooked, begin to add your carrots and cabbage into the pan and cook them for about 5-10 minutes.
Once all of your meat and vegetables are mixed, add your sesame seed oil and seasonings to your dish (add as much or as little as you choose)
Take your egg roll wraps and place them on a flat surface. Start at a corner and place some filling there, begin to roll it about halfway. Take the sides to the left and right of your wrapped filling and fold them towards each other. Continue to roll your egg roll until there is no more wrap left. Crack an egg and place a little bit on the finishing point of your egg roll wrap to keep it closed.
Set your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a light layer of olive oil on the egg rolls and put them in the air fryer (don’t let them touch). Let them cook for 12 minutes, flip halfway through to cook evenly. Take them out once they are done and let them cool for a bit. Enjoy!
