Cheeseburger Egg Rolls are a delicious treat you can serve as a lunch idea, party appetizer, or dinner itself! Kids and adults all love cheeseburgers. Serving them in an egg roll is fun and an easy to eat snack.
What Is A Cheeseburger Egg Roll?
In plain English, these cheeseburger egg rolls are AMAZING. I mean, cheeseburgers are an American favorite food. Additionally, this alternative version of your classic sandwich will be one of your new favorite ways to eat a burger!
The cheeseburger filling combines ground beef and cheese along with your favorite burger condiments; ketchup, mayonnaise, relish, mustard, and worcestershire sauce. The meat takes on a life of it’s own without needing a roll at this point, but it would be tricky to eat it as is. You could even serve this meat concoction over corn chips and have yummy cheeseburger nachos! Hmm, sounds like a great idea for another recipe…But what if you are trying to eat a cheeseburger alternative? That wouldn’t work in that case. With this cheeseburger egg roll recipe, you can create a yummy cheeseburger in a finger food form! Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Easy to Make
Basically, there are 2 parts to this recipe; making the cheeseburger filling & making the egg rolls themselves. Technically, I would rate this recipe as a novice to intermediate level of difficulty. The reasoning is that the first half is super easy to make. The second step takes a little more patience and time, but it isn’t super difficult.
Making the cheeseburger filling is super easy. If you have ever browned ground beef, you know that it is pretty simple. All you do is put the meat in a pan, cook until it’s browned and then it’s done! Simple! After that, you add the condiments and mix thoroughly. Simple!
Next step is to put the filling in the egg roll wrapper and wrapping them up before cooking. Wrapping an egg roll can be tricky. However, the first time I made these I survived! Ha, that’s what it felt like anyways. I was definitely apprehensive just thinking about making these. However, once I started wrapping and rolling the egg rolls up, my anxiety dissipated. Truly, this step wasn’t so bad. I’m confident that you can get through it and the cheeseburger egg rolls will come out beautifully!
Healthy Vs. Unhealthy
Typically, when you hear someone say Egg Roll, you think of an Asian appetizer that is filled with meat and veggies or just vegetables. Those egg rolls are usually fried. Therefore, you might assume that these Cheeseburger Egg Rolls are fried as well. Technically, you could fry these egg rolls. However, this recipe is to baked or air fry the egg rolls. Therefore, no unnecessary oil is needed for this scrumptious cheeseburger goodness! Does that make you feel better about eating a few of these? It should! Substituting ground turkey or ground chicken help bump up the healthy factor for this delicious dish. However, I am only focusing on ground beef to be used for these cheeseburger egg rolls.
Ways to Cook
Air frying is one of my new favorite ways to cook. I’m a little late to the game as far as air frying goes, I know. I recently bought a Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven. My toaster oven of 18 years finally bit the bullet and it was time to decide on just another toaster oven or upgrade to an air fryer/toaster oven product. Anyhow, I got the all-in-one product and now I can make these yummy cheeseburger egg rolls with the ease of an air fryer and without deep frying! Also, air frying takes less time than baking something in the oven. Another added bonus!
Because not everyone has jumped on the air frying bandwagon, I don’t want to discriminate and leave anyone out! After all, conventional oven bakers also need to experience this deliciousness! For that reason, there is an adjustment of temperature and timing for cooking these egg rolls in a conventional oven. The actual recipe does not need to be altered in any way. Just another amazing thing about this party favorite.
I am confident that you will really enjoy these cheeseburger egg rolls. They are easy to make, minimal ingredients, easy to eat, and taste great! Just make sure you make enough for everyone. My kids ate 4 each! Granted, they eat a lot in general. I was shocked at how much they enjoyed this for dinner. Get ready to save this recipe to your favorite Pinterest Board!
