These Big Mac Egg Rolls taste just like a Big Mac but better! Not only are they just as flavorful they are healthier than take out. Skip the bun and all the additives of a Big Mac and try these Big Mac egg rolls at home. This recipe includes a recipe for my homemade special sauce and tastes just like the real deal! They don’t call it special sauce for fun… this sauce is truly something magical and special.

BigMac’s do not need much of an introduction, I think everyone has either had or at least heard of a BigMac at least once in their life! For me, I can’t tell you how many BigMac’s I’ve had. Not because I’m embarrassed at the high number but because I truly have lost count!

Sab’s Love of BigMacs

You might find this funny coming from a food lover and food blogger but there is something nostalgic and heart warming about digging into a BigMac. Growing up the golden arches was a rare occasion so it became a treat. We did not have McDonalds often growing up and when we did it was because we were celebrating something or needed a cheer up after a long day and for some reason that special sauce can cheer me up any day!

You may not know this about me yet, but I have an Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Statics. To achieve my degree came 4 years of long days and nights of studying, assignments, homework, and more stress tears than you can imagine. These days and nights were often filled with BigMacs as a late night reward or simply because I was just too tired to cook. Looking back, my university years were my highest BigMac consumption years (LOL)!

Fast-forward almost 10 years later and here I am with a healthier version of one of the worlds most famous burgers! BigMac eggrolls combine two very classic flavors – egg rolls and BigMacs… and we can’t forget that magical special sauce. I love making my egg rolls in an air fryer as it cuts down on the amount of oil needed for cooking. However, I have also included cooking instructions for stove top/deep frying method and an oven baked method.

What is in Big Mac Egg Rolls?

ingredients to make bigmac egg rolls

Star Ingredients

  • Ground Beef – seasoned with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Instead of shaping a burger patty the meat cooked and crumbled to mimic the texture of a classic egg roll.

  • Cheese – I choose to use classic American sliced cheese to get as close as possible to the classic burger. However, you can use any cheese variety you prefer.

  • Pickle – oh the classic tang of the thinly sliced pickles often so messily thrown onto a BigMac! I use dill pickles and chop them up into small bite sized pieces so they can be evenly dispersed throughout the egg roll.

  • Onion – I don’t know what it is about those cute little re-hydrated onions. Maybe I’m crazy but I wish I could get my hands on a bag of those onions to use in these egg rolls. Instead I use fresh onions finely diced into small pieces to spread throughout the egg rolls.

  • Sesame Seeds – to mimic the sesame seed buns from the golden arches, after the egg rolls are cooked and still shimmering from the cooking oil, sesame seeds are sprinkled on top! They add the cutest finish to these egg rolls.

  • Special Sauce – is as simple as mixing together classic condiments – mayo, mustard, ketchup and relish with a splash of apple cider vinegar that brings a bit of tang to the sauce (if you do not have apple cider vinegar you can substitute with any white vinegar, i.e. white vinegar, white wine vinegar, etc.).
    • Tip: you can also use Thousand Island dressing in place of special sauce, they are very similar in flavour!

I love air frying my egg rolls, they are just as crispy and delicious as deep fried but without all the added oil!

My favorite Air Fryers that I highly recommend:

Cosori 5.8 Qt Air Fryer

Canadian Link

USA and All Other Countries Link

I have had my Cosori 5.8 Qt for 3 years and love it! I cook for a family of 5 with this basket style air fryer. This has an XL basket that is square (not round like most air fryers) so it has a large capacity which is great for 3-5 people.

Instant Vortex Pro

Canadian Link

USA and All Other Countries Link

I have had my Instant Vortex Pro for 2 years and love it! This is a tray style air fryer has 2 trays and has a rotating basket (great for fries) and rotisserie. The rotisserie feature is amazing, you can cook a whole chicken! With 2 trays this air fryer is good for 3-6 people.

1 In a medium sized frying pan cook the ground beef until fully cooked, approximately 10 minutes. Drain the meat. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

2 To assemble the egg rolls place one slice of cheese in the center. Top with 2-3 spoonful’s of ground beef, a few pieces of diced pickle and onion.

3 Wet the edges of the egg roll wrapper. Fold in two opposite corners to the center and then tightly roll. Repeat with remaining egg roll wrappers.

Cook the Egg Rolls – 3 Methods for Cooking

AIR FRYER COOKING METHOD
Brush both sides of the egg rolls with oil and Air Fry at 400F for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. Flip halfway through cooking and brush with more oil as needed. Once removed from the Air Fryer top with sesame seeds.

STOVE TOP/DEEP FRYING COOKING METHOD
Heat a deep pot with oil on medium heat. Fry the egg rolls in small batches for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and top with sesame seeds.

OVEN COOKING METHOD
Brush the egg rolls with oil on both sides. Place directly on a sheet pan lined with tin foil OR on a sheet pan with a rack. Bake at 400F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Flip halfway through cooking and brush with more oil as needed. Once removed from oven top with sesame seeds.

To make the special sauce stir together all the sauce ingredients until smooth.

Serve and enjoy!

How to Reheat BigMac Egg Rolls

Use one of these 3 options to reheat your egg rolls:

AIR FRYER REHEATING METHOD

Air Fry the cooked egg rolls at 400°F for 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. The egg roll wrapper will get crispy on the outside.

OVEN REHEATING METHOD

Place cooked egg rolls directly on a sheet pan lined with tin foil OR on a sheet pan with a rack. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. Flip halfway through reheating. The egg roll wrapper will get crispy on the outside.

MICROWAVE REHEATING METHOD

Microwave in 15 second intervals until warmed through (note: this reheating method will not make the egg roll wrapper crispy)
