Breakfast Egg Rolls

These crispy Breakfast Egg Rolls are stuffed with scrambled eggs, chicken sausage (or use bacon), green onions, and bell peppers for a different take on an egg sandwich or breakfast taco. I love dipping mine in my favorite salsa. Keep a stash in your freezer, so you always have a protein-filled breakfast ready to go.

How to Cook Egg Rolls

You can cook these breakfast egg rolls in an air fryer or oven.

  • For the air fryer egg rolls, preheat to 370 degrees and spray the egg rolls with oil. Cook in batches for 10 minutes, turning halfway.
  • For the oven, bake for 12 to 16 minutes turning over halfway through. The end results will be golden and crispy egg rolls.

Freezer Tips:

These egg rolls are perfect to make ahead and freeze for later. You don’t even have to thaw them – just bake them from frozen.

  • Freeze in a freezer-safe bag for up to six months.
  • If air frying frozen breakfast egg rolls, cook for 12 to 14 minutes.
  • For the oven, bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.

Can you freeze egg roll wrappers?

Yes, if you have any leftover egg roll wrappers, you can freeze them. You may want to put a piece of parchment paper in between each wrapper so that they don’t freeze together.

Breakfast Egg Roll Variations:

  • Omit the sausage to make them vegetarian.
  • Swap the sausage for bacon.
  • Add shredded cheddar cheese to the eggs.
  • If you don’t have any green onions, you can use yellow onions.
  • Add in some fresh diced jalapenos with the sauteed veggies for a little heat.

These Breakfast Egg Rolls, loaded with eggs, sausage, and veggies cooked in the oven or air fryer, are a fun twist on an egg sandwich. Perfect for making ahead and reheating as needed.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 pound chicken or turkey sausage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • olive oil spray
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • salsa, optional for dipping

Instructions

  • Beat eggs with water, salt and black pepper.
  • In a medium nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 4 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain.

  1. These are super tasty and so easy to have in the freezer for an easy breakfast that can be eaten on the go. I’ve used the turkey chorizo in lieu of sausage – it’s a great substitution.

  2. I made these today, and they are delicious, highly recommend making them.

  3. These are so good! They need a lite cheese, so I added that in my second batch.

  4. These are GREAT!!! I was able to make them vegetarian with the Impossible brand sausage — absolutely LOVED them!
    Easy to make – great to have in the frig/freezer for a grab & go meal!
    I recently purchased the Vortex Air Fryer and I was encouraged to try some veggie things in it in addition to the chicken dishes I make for my husband!
    I have made Gina’s falafel in my previous Air Fryer (absolutely delicious) – I just LOVE this technique for getting a crispy texture without the deep fried affect :)!

  5. Just made these in my convection toaster oven (on the “air fryer” function setting), and while they tasted delicious, they didn’t look as nice as yours on the outside. I couldn’t achieve that deep golden color all over. The edges turned golden, but the rest stayed kinda pale and look kinda dry, even though they were crispy. I thought I used plenty of oil, but maybe I needed more? Not sure if there’s something inherently different about the toaster oven air fryers though. My first batch was at 370 and after 5 minutes they were pretty burnt already. Next batch I lowered to 300 and only 3 minutes per side which was pretty good. Is there a conversion between types of convection ovens?

    In any case they were absolutely delicious! I used hot Italian chicken sausage and dipped them in Herdez guacamole salsa. Will absolutely make these again! Thank you!

  6. Loved these. I actually used the Jimmy Dean frozen turkey sausage mix with cheese onions and peppers worked out great. It has potatoes but i picked them out.

  7. Question: If I plan on meal prepping with these and freezing them, do I bake them first, then freeze them? Or do I freeze them unbaked?

  8. These are simply fabulous! I used turkey breakfast sausage and added chopped jalapeno’s and a bit of pepperjack cheese. Froze them and reheated in the air fryer, makes the perfect breakfast!

  9. I had leftover egg roll wrappers after making the shrimp egg rolls so I decided to use them on these. I love the idea but didn’t like my ingredients! I got Trader Joe’s breakfast chicken sausage and removed the casings. The sausage had zero flavor. Next time, I’ll use a different brand or maybe use bacon. I had a yellow pepper instead of red. For more visual appeal, I’ll get a red next time. Definitely will attempt again!

  10. Such a fun idea! I love making these for dinner and having leftovers the next morning for breakfast. They come out perfect in the air fryer!

  11. Hi these look nice looking forward to making them, I bit confused with the listed ingredient chicken or turkey sausage, I am from Australia we can buy chicken and turkey mince and also chicken and turkey sausages in sausage casings which would be suitable to make these   Thanks

  12. Made these with turkey chorizo and they were awesome!  My new breakfast addiction 😊

  13. I would love it if you could come up with a veggie egg roll type like Chinese food .
