We’ll just come right out and say it: we love egg rolls! We always have and we’re convinced we always will. Any time there’s an opportunity to get takeout or go out to eat, egg rolls are at the top of our list of things to order. Lately, however, we’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to make things at home ourselves rather than always spending money on eating out. That’s how we found ourselves combing the Internet for exciting new homemade egg roll recipes!
Just in case you love egg rolls just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the most unique and delicious sounding flavour combinations, tutorials, and recipes that we’ve come across so far in our search.
1. Delicious classic egg rolls
Before you start getting creative with the ingredients, try making classic egg rolls at home, just to get yourself familiar with the process! Besides, it’s always good to know how to make your favourite things. See how these fantastic egg rolls were done on All She Cooks!
2. Cheeseburger egg rolls
If you’ve ever been a big fan of cheeseburgers then we have a combination recipe here that, although it might sound kind of strange, we think will really appeal to you! Check out how Will Cook for Smiles made delicious egg rolls with ground beef and cheese inside. They taste just like a cheeseburger with a little bit of outside crunch!
3. Southern style egg rolls
For us, part oft he whole enjoyable experience of eating egg rolls is also the sauce we’re dipping them in. There’s just something so delicious about the way the flavours and textures blend. Usually we’d use plum sauce or sweet n’ sour, but we were very glad indeed wit the results when we tried these pork filled egg rolls served with a slightly spicy Southwestern sauce as an alternative. Get the full details for making it on Taste of Home!
4. Avocado bacon egg rolls
Besides our obsession with egg rolls, our other favourite thing to order from a menu or cook at home is avocado. By that, we mean that we love avocado so much that we’ll eat anything that’s made with it. Imagine our excitement, then, when we came across this unique avocado and bacon filled egg roll recipe from Home Cooking Memories that combines so many things we love in one place!
5. Breakfast egg rolls

6. Chicken egg rolls
We find that most egg rolls you order in restaurants are either served filled with vegetables, shrimp, or pork. While we like those kinds very much, we also love the idea of trying different kinds of meat inside! That’s why we liked this chicken egg roll recipe from Mr. Food so much.
7. Easy baked veggie egg rolls

8. Sesame chicken egg rolls

10. Banana nutella egg rolls
Despite our lifelong love for egg rolls, we actually were not aware that dessert egg rolls were a thing until very recently. Now that we’ve discovered them, we’re kind of obsessed with the idea! The first kind we ever make at home were these wonderfully crispy and sweet banana Nutella egg rolls by Cheap Recipe Blog and we absolutely adored them.
11. Mexican egg rolls

14. Fried apple pie egg rolls
Just to make sure you have lots of options, here’s another fantastic dessert egg roll recipe for you! We love the way It’s Yummi made an apple pie filling that’s traditional and sweet but wrapped it in classic egg roll shell to get that slightly more savoury crunch. It makes for a delicious and interesting flavour combination!
15. Turkey egg roll bowl with creamy Sriracha
Have you actually committed to eating a little healthier and watching your calorie intake along with spending less money on takeout, but you’re still on the hunt for a diet smart way to enjoy something that is at least a bit similar to the egg rolls you love so much?
