The Absolute Best Ways
To Reheat
Egg Rolls
Wrap the rolls in a paper towel to help absorb excess water in the food, or use a trivet (a microwave-safe slotted stand). Reheat on high for 30 seconds (longer if they've been in the fridge), flip, and reheat for another 15 to 30 seconds until heated through, trying not to lose too much crunch.
Pan or Deep Fryer
Make sure the oil is hot enough before dropping the egg rolls in the pan to get the crispiness on the outside. Once the oil heats, lower the fire under the pan to ensure the egg roll warms through without burning the wrapping, and cook anywhere from five to 10 minutes, flipping continuously.
Air Fryer
Once the egg rolls are nestled in the fryer, heat at 350 degrees for one to two minutes, flip, and cook for another two minutes or until cooked. For cooking more than two egg rolls, make sure to leave space between them for air circulation, so they cook evenly.
Oven or Toaster Oven
This method might be the slowest, but using an oven or a toaster oven is an excellent way to keep the outer crust crisp without turning the inside to mush. Reheat on a foil-covered baking sheet, then pop them in a preheated 350-degree oven and leave them in for five minutes total, flipping them after two and a half.
Microwave and Oven
This is perhaps the best method for reheating egg rolls, resulting in hot meat inside and crunchy wrap outside. First, heat them in the microwave on low for two minutes, then brush or spray them lightly with oil before transferring them to a preheated 425-degree oven, and cook for seven to 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until crispy.
