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.
