How to make Avocado Egg Rolls

Once you’ve made these, you’ll realize just how easy they are. Grab a kid or spouse to help form an assembly line and it’s even easier.

STIR. In a bowl, stir together vinegars, honey and saffron. Heat for one minute in the microwave.

PUREE. Puree this mixture in a blender adding cashews, 2/3 cup cilantro, garlic, sugar, pepper and cumin. Pour into a bowl and add the oil. Stir and refrigerate.

FILL. In a bowl, stir together avocado, tomatoes, 1 tsp. cilantro and salt. Add ⅓ of the mixture onto the center of each egg roll wrapper.

FOLD. Position the wrapper so the corner is pointing towards you. Fold the bottom corner up over the filling. Fold remaining corners up over the filling and brushing the corners with egg to secure in place. Roll up from the bottom folding the top corner over all. Seal with egg and repeat for remaining wrappers.

FRY. Fry egg rolls for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with dipping sauce.

These are great dipped in Homemade Ranch Dressing, this Cilantro Ranch Dressing or just eating them the way they are.

Tips and Variations

Cooking:

  • We are pan-frying them in this recipe. Just make sure that the oil covers the bottom of the pan and that the oil is hot enough to fry and give them a good color, but not too hot that it will burn them!
  • If you want, you can bake them at 425 degrees for around 20 minutes until they are golden brown. This is definitely a healthier option because it doesn’t involve all the added oil.
  • Preheat the airfryer to 400°F. Spray the outside of the eggrolls with cooking spray before putting them in the air fryer. Cook for 7-8 minutes, flipping them halfway.

Ripe Avocados: Avocados ripen after they have been picked. If you want to make this recipe soon after buying avocados, choose ones that are deep even green and are a bit softened when you press them. If you have hard avocados, you’ll need to wait for them to ripen before using. To speed up the ripening process we recommend placing unripe avocados in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana for two to three days until they are ripe. 

How to Store

STORE leftover Egg Rolls wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days or the freezer for up to 3 months. 

FREEZE before they have been cooked. Assemble the egg rolls as instructed, but do not fry. Instead, tightly wrap each roll with plastic wrap and freeze. You can allow them to thaw a bit or cook them frozen.

REHEAT. If you had your leftovers in the fridge and want to finish eating your delicious dish I would suggest popping them in the oven to keep them crispy while re-warming them. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place in the oven at 450 degrees and heat for around 5 minutes on each side. Then let it sit for 2 minutes so you don’t burn your tongue.

  1. Love this recipe! Exactly like the restaurant’s. Have made them several times since your original posting and received rave reviews. Thanks for sharing!

  2. OMG. …… OMG.

    Sorry, I can’t seem to stop gaping at this. Avocado egg rolls? I’m dying.

    Since I sill have wrappers from your other egg roll recipe I made last weekend, this is pretty much fate, no? (Those were awesome, BTW.) 🙂

  3. Hi!
    I was wondering about the sundried tomatoes packed in oil?
    Is that something you actually buy or you make?
    If it’s not obvious, I’m not much of a cook lol but I’ve been trying to get into cooking recently and I want to try this recipe SO BAD!

  4. LOVE the avocado eggrolls at Cheesecake Factory! Making these is not even an option… it’s a requirement. Thanks so much for sharing! Super excited about this…

  5. I am so excited to try these! Just looking for some clarification on the frying part. Do you deep fry them, or pan fry them in a little bit of oil? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Good question – just fry them in a pan with a little bit of oil. I would fry each side for a few minutes until it’s all golden brown. You’ll love them! 😀

  6. Hi! This recipe looks amazing! One qck question though: it calls for 3 wrappers, does that mean this recipe only makes 3 egg rolls? Has anyone tried using wonton wrappers for mini ones? Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to try it!

  7. These are amazing! The dipping sauce definitely makes the meal! I didn’t have saffron so I just didn’t use it and it was still delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

  8. I have to try this! I would leave out the cilantro tho. Can’t stand that stuff, but everything else looks delicious!
    Where do I find the egg roll wrappers?

  9. Have some fun trying to think up a few catchy
    names for your website. Have you been searching for really funny pictures online that will make you laugh.
    These freebies can help you effectively combat stress.

  10. They look so good! Im trying to make them with some meat in the as well! But, are they freeze-able? Before frying them? Are the avocados going to hold up in the freezer without turning brown?

    1. I personally haven’t, I’m not sure how the avocado would hold up a day before. Anytime, I use avocado, I add it right before, because it gets brown so fast. You could try?? I’d love to know, if you do!

    The SAUCE alone is amazing! Thank you for posting this copycat recipe. It was delicious and totally satisfied my craving for these suckers from the restaurant.

  12. 5 stars
    Made this for luncj today. we Loved it! My husband ABsolutely loves these and now we can make them at home!! I cooked them in an air fryer and they came out crispy and SOoooo good.

    1. An air fryer would be perfect!! I could eat these everyday! I am so glad you both liked them!! Thank you!

  13. Is it a wonton wrapper or eggroll wrapper? It says one in ingredients and the other in the directions. The size is quite different. THANKS

  14. 5 stars
    Ok these were delicious! They tasted just like the cheesecake factory’s recipe. I substituted a pinch of paprika and tumeric in place of the saffron because it is expensive where i live. This recipe made a lot of egg rolls! I highly reCommend trying these!!!!

  15. 5 stars
    Hello Kristyn, I haven’t had these at Cheesecake Factory but your version looks amazing. thanks

    1. Oh, they are my favorite! These are pretty darn close to the real thing 🙂 Hope you like them!

  16. 5 stars
    I would like to make this but I need a good substitute for honey. My daughter is allergic to it. Thank you.

    1. So glad you have made and enjoyed these! You can use maple syrup or agave as a honey substitute. You could probably google some other great honey substitute options as well.

    These are made fresh daily! Good copycat! The recipe does have red onions Finley minced, rice vinegar, salt and pepper when they are rolled we add corn starch all over the egg rolls that’s why it has a different texture when fried
