Cheesy Breakfast Egg Rolls

Whether you have to run out the door in the morning or take a few minutes to relax at the table, these breakfast egg rolls will hit the spot. The egg and sausage mixture can be made the night before so in the morning you roll, fry and go! —Anne Ormond, Dover, New Hampshire
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Cook: 10 min./batch
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onions
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • Cooking spray
  • Maple syrup or salsa, optional


  • In a small nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in cheeses and green onions; set aside. Wipe skillet clean.
  • In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended. In the same skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Stir in sausage mixture.
  • Preheat air fryer to 400°. With 1 corner of an egg roll wrapper facing you, place 1/4 cup filling just below center of wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; moisten remaining wrapper edges with water. Fold side corners toward center over filling. Roll egg roll up tightly, pressing at tip to seal. Repeat.
  • In batches, arrange egg rolls in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Turn; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and crisp, 3-4 minutes longer. If desired, serve with maple syrup or salsa.

    Love breakfast burritos but putting the egg mixture in egg rolls is very good. Entire family liked these. Will certainly skip the tortilla and grab the egg roll wrappers.
