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.

How do u make the dipping sauce???
Please disregard my request for the sauce. Found it when I tried printing. Just made the sauce and cut down the honey almost in half. Additionally we had no tamarind, so add a small amount of balsamic glaze and a 1/2 T of fresh chopped jalapeno.
Delicious. Thank you.
I have looked multiple times to locate the dipping sauce recipe as have multipe others Can u please cut and paste in the reply?
Tamarind paste or the blocks??
I am so sorry, I am just seeing this tonight.
Can I have the recipe for the sauce?
It’s in the post above. 🙂
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
I usually use Dynasty brand.
Sundried in oil?
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!
Sounds delicious! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the recipes and the site.
Can you explain about tamarind pulp how you make or use it for your recipe?
It was used for the dipping sauce.
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!
Glad to know it was a hit! Thanks for the 5 stars.
Where is the recipe for the dipping sauce?
It’s in the post above the recipe card. Enjoy!
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?
Keep them in a warm oven as you move through the batch. That should help keep them crispy until serving.
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?
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!
Thank You, I did cool it down on the cooling tray and they were not moist either and still become soggy. Any other suggestion?
It’s really all about removing any excess moisture from them.
Thanks for the 5 stars, Zai.
If Im substituting tamarind paste for sauce, how much should use?
That will work 🙂
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.
Sorry this comment was snagged in my spam folder. I would recommend Tamicon tamarind paste.
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 ??
Are the sun-dried tomatoes the kind that is packed in oil or the ones that are dry?
The ones that are packed in oil. Enjoy!
Do I need to place the tamarind pulp in boiling water and strain? Or just use as is in block form?
So sorry for the late reply, if you are using the block form you will want to strain and prep it first.
I love a good copycat recipe! Can’t wait to try it!
Oh my goodness these were amazing! Thank you so much!
