How to Reheat an Egg Roll

If you want to eat reheat eggrolls and have them maintain the same crispy/crunchy taste that you love, then you definitely have to go about warming them up in the oven. While this is not the quickest method, it is by far one of the better options available.

Steps to Reheat in Oven

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place the egg rolls on a baking/cookie sheet.
  • Allow them to heat up for about 10-15 minutes (depending on how cold they are).
  • If they are not heated up fully, you can leave them in a bit longer.
  • Take out and enjoy.

Reheat Egg Rolls On the Stovetop

Another method that you can use is by reheating the egg rolls on the stove top in a skillet or pan. This is a quick option and will not only get them crispy, but piping hot in no time.

Steps to Reheat on the Stovetop

  • Heat a skillet/pan with some cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Throw in the egg rolls and allow them to heat up thoroughly on one side before flipping them.
  • Once the eggrolls are fully heated up, take out.
  • Place on paper towels to soak up excess oil.
  • Enjoy!
