 Cheesecake Factory Egg Rolls (Copycat)

Cheesecake Factory copycat recipes are the most popular copycat recipes on the site! Yes, even more than Panda Express recipes, and we love the appetizer menu the most because it is where they release the most new recipes.

These creamy avocado egg rolls seem like they’d be hard to make but they only have five ingredients in the egg roll recipe! The avocado filling is just avocados, sun dried tomatoes, onions and cilantro with a bit of pepper, so most of the pops of flavor come from the sauce ingredients. The cook time of the recipe is just a few minutes too because the egg rolls just need to be fried long enough to brown.

If you want a quick and easy sauce option without as many ingredients you can use a sweet chili sauce with some fresh cilanto and a bit of vinegar mixed in and save yourself the trip the grocery store looking for tamarind pulp.

How to fold an egg roll:

  • Fill with 2-3 tablespoons of avocado filling in a horizontal line.
  • Wet the edges of the wrapper.
  • Fold the sides in over the filling.
  • Fold down the top corner and roll down tightly towards the bottom corner.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes before frying to allow wrapper to seal before frying on medium high heat.

Baked Avocado Egg Rolls:

If you’d like to bake the egg rolls instead of frying then, spray the egg rolls with canola oil spray before baking. Bake at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Just know if you bake them the avocado won’t be as bright green inside because of the longer cooking time.

How to Cook Avocado Egg Rolls:

Avocado Egg Rolls are easy to make and since your filling is meant to be eaten raw. You only have to fry them long enough to cook the egg roll wrappers to a perfect golden brown.

Perfect Avocado Egg Rolls

  • Do not freeze these egg rolls, frozen avocado that is defrosted does not reheat well.
  • If you aren’t cooking immediately toss the avocado mixture in lime juice.
  • Add some heat to these egg rolls with some chopped spicy chili pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, or red pepper flakes.
  • Serve these with other appetizers like P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Copycat) orKorean Ground Beef Egg Rolls.
  • Place these egg rolls on a cooling rack with paper towels under it to catch any hot oil that drips off. Putting them directly onto the paper towels may cause the bottoms to steam and get soggy.
  • If you want to avoid using eggs, use a bit of water on the edges of the wrapper to seal it and prevent them from opening while deep-frying.
  • If you want to make these into small bites fill them in wonton wrappers with just 1 tablespoon of filling.

Tamarind-Cashew Dipping Sauce recipe

  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup green onions
  • ¼ cup cashews
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon tamarind pulp
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  1. Add ingredients together in a small food processor and pulse until combined, in small pieces but not smooth.

If you look at the Tex Mex Egg rolls there is a second dipping sauce, a sour cream cilantro dipping sauce.

  1. Just found your site!
    These egg rolls filling was amazing and the sauce very tasty.
    But my Nasoya vegan egg roll wrappers (baked) came out too crispy outside and too chewy on the inside:(
    Any suggestions on what went wrong? Do you have a brand of wrappers you love?
    Also any substitutions for tamarind paste?
    Ty in advance

  2. As a sneaky addition, I put in cream cheese & crab to make it even more decadent. Every single one of your recipes are top quality! The quick ones, the Asian ones, the copycats. I’m a believer & subscriber!

  3. These were spot on the CF! I had to add a bit more sugar and vinegar to the sauce, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I was so impressed with myself! Definitely saving your recipe and will make these again and again ?. Would love a copycat recipe to CF chicken tenders and their ranch, my daughters favorites!

  4. I made this and came out so delicious. My only problem was it got soggy after it got cold. Did I do anything wrong. I followed exactly what you wrote as not to put in on the napkin and to put in on the rack and still got soggy. Any other suggestion to prevent that and to keep it crispy?

  5. I made this and came out delicious and so flavorful the only problem I had was my roll got soggy after cooling down. Do you know what I did wrong?

    1. I’m glad they were still delicious! Next time, try putting them on a cooling tray when they’re done, making sure that the egg roll isn’t laying on paper towels or anything else that would trap moisture. Hope this helps for next time!

      1. Thank You, I did cool it down on the cooling tray and they were not moist either and still become soggy. Any other suggestion?

  6. Can you steer me in the right direction for tamarind pulp? I googled it and there a few variations and don’t want to mess it up.

      1. Where do you get the Dynasty brand Tamarind Paste? I’ve looked everywhere! Even on line & cannot find it! I did find the other brand you mentioned in a Organic Paste but don’t know if that will work? I don’t want to mess up the dipping sauce!
        Where can I buy the Dynasty Brand at? Can’t even find it on Amazon or on Walmart’s Site either ??
        Warmest Regards
        Pamela Goulart

  7. This is one of my favorite appetizers to order when I eat out! Love that I now know how to make it at home instead!

      1. Sabrina, Awesome flavor profile! This is a perfect exact CCF dipping sauce recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  8. I just want to say Sabrina, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your recipes. They are always the best! I’ve been cooking for 60 yrs and you and martha stewart are my go to girls. I don’t bother with all the others. I just google you and martha because I know from experience I’ll get a recipe that’s perfect.
