Cheeseburger Filling

  • Preheat 3″ of oil to 375° in a large dutch oven or stockpot.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat add the ground beef, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and cumin. Cook the seasoned ground beef until browned.
  • Once the ground beef is cooked, remove the skillet from the heat and drain any excess fat.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine cooked seasoned meat mixture, cheddar cheese, onion, and pickles.

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

  • Place egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface with one corner facing you. Spoon 3 tablespoons of filling onto the center of the egg roll wrapper.
  • Fold the bottom corner up and over the filling. Next, fold the two outward corners into the center like an envelope.
  • Brush the remaining top corner with water and then roll the egg roll up to seal. Repeat the rolling process with the remaining wrappers to create the rest of the egg rolls.
  • Once all the egg rolls are wrapped and the oil is heated, carefully add four egg rolls to the preheated oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until they are sufficiently golden brown.
  • Once cooked, remove the egg rolls from the pan and place them on a plate or baking sheet.
  • Repeat the frying process until all egg rolls are fried. Serve with your favorite condiments or dipping sauce.


Recipe Tips

  • Block Cheese. Shredding your cheese from a block of cheese instead of purchasing pre-shredded cheese always seems best for overall taste. Freshly shredded cheese also melts better. 
  • Don't Overcrowd. It’s important that you don’t overcrowd the egg rolls in the pan while frying which is why I only fry four at a time. If you do, they won’t crisp up as they should. 
  • Quality Ingredients. High-quality ground beef will provide maximum flavor to these egg rolls. While you can opt to use lean ground beef, regular ground beef packs a ton of flavor thanks to its fatty content. Just make sure you drain off any excess fat once the ground beef has been browned otherwise it can make the mixture overly soggy.
  • Drain Excess Oil. Allow any excess oil from the freshly fried egg rolls to be absorbed by placing them on a baking sheet or plate lined with paper towels. You could also place them on a wire rack on top of a tray to catch oil drippings.  
  • Reheating. Egg rolls may be reheated the day after for 1 minute in the air fryer to add back some crispness to the egg roll wrappers. 
  • Storage.  Store leftover egg rolls in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
