I’m a sucker for stuffing things in an egg roll and calling it an appetizer. So when I found out that Cheesecake Factory had an appetizer where they stuffed an avocado in an egg roll with a dipping sauce, I was on board.



I recall for months trying to find a special occasion for us to go to Cheesecake Factory just to try this appetizer. We finally went, I tried it, and I was in love. I knew I had to make it at home but I kind of hate deep frying, especially now since I have my air fryer.

And like magic it clicked, I have my air fryer. I can make these Copycat Avacado Egg Rolls right in my air fryer.

How to make Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls in the Air Fryer

Pick your Avocado

Finding a perfect avocado is no easy task. Avocados ripen fast and if you aren’t careful, your avocado will go bad before you even get a chance to use it. I tend to check for firmness and the stem, making sure it is green. You can read more about picking avocados here.

Cut your Avocado

You’ll want to start by cutting your avocado in half, around the huge seed in the middle and separating it into two. Next, cut your avocado in medium sized square pieces, slicing the avocado but not cutting through the skin.  I use a small paring knife. Lastly, you will take a spoon and scoop the avocado into the bowl. Your avocado should fall into the bowl in nice square pieces.

Add all Ingredients into a Bowl

Add all the inside of the egg roll ingredients to a bowl and lightly mix it together. Make sure to carefully toss the ingredients and not allow the avocado to get too mushy. These avocado egg rolls turn out better when the avocado keeps the square chunky cut.

Roll your egg rolls

Add the filling into each egg roll wrapper and roll them up. There is a science to rolling the perfect egg roll.

  • Lay the egg roll wrapper in a diamond shape. Rub egg wash on the outer sides of the egg rolls wrappers.
  • Fill each egg roll wrapper with about 1/3 cup of avocado filling near a corner.
  • Roll the bottom corner up, completely covering the filling and fold in the sides.
  • Roll the egg roll up, sealing it.

Brush egg on top of egg rolls

This step is truly optional. I do it because I hate to waste the egg and I found it gives my egg a nice extra crispiness.

Air Fry Egg Rolls

Air Fry your egg rolls in a preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit Air Fryer. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Make sure not to overcrowd your basket. Find this tip and others in my 10 Air Fryer Tips.

Prepare your Dipping Sauce

The dipping sauce is one of my favorite parts of this recipe. The Avocado rolls are good without it but are amazing when dipped in the dip. Just throw the ingredients in a small bowl and set it to the side while you create the rolls.

Ingredients

Avocado Egg Rolls

  • 3 avocados halved, pit removed, cubed and copped out
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • salt and pepper

Cilantro Honey Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Combine Ingredients for Cilantro Honey Dipping Sauce and set aside. 
  • Prepare Avocado Egg Roll by placing avocado, Roma tomato, red onion, cilantro, garlic clove, and fresh lime juice in a large bowl and gently combine. Salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Use beaten egg and rub around edges of egg roll wrapper. Place 1/3 cup of avocado mixture in each egg roll wrapper and roll, sealing the edge. 
  • Use pastry brush and spread remaining egg wash on top of egg rolls.*
  • Preheat air fryer basket to 400 degrees. Spray inside of the air fryer basket. Cook egg rolls for 10 minutes, flipping halfway. 
  • Remove and allow to cool. Egg rolls are done when wrappers are golden. 
  • Serve egg rolls with Cilantro Honey Dipping Sauce. Enjoy 🙂

Notes

*Spreading the remaining egg on top of the egg rolls is optional. I don't like the waisting the egg and I find it gives my egg rolls an extra brown and crisp color.
*Never use aerosol spray cans in your Air Fryer. Invest in a quality oil spray bottle.

Where do you get the parchment paper and what is the best spray bottle

on Amazon. My favorite spray bottle is the Evo spray bottles. I've included a link to both items under the "Suggested Tools" heading in the recipe card.

I would like to make these in advance. How would you suggest I do this?

Thanks for this recipe, I can't wait to try it! FYI I have recently been on a 'filled wonton wrapper' kick, and you can use water instead of egg to seal the wontons. I don't have an air fryer (yet), so I will spray or brush on olive or canola oil and bake them. It should be the same result based on my past experiences with similar recipes.

Great idea Sandra. I've tried water in the past but could never get them to sick as well as they do with the egg. I'll try it again though. Please let me know how you like them baked :)
