Reuben Egg Rolls Recipe

The ultimate twist on the classic Reuben sandwich. Switch out the bread and try these unique Rueben style egg rolls. Stuffed with corned beef, Swiss cheese and tangy sauerkraut. Serve with Thousand Island dressings to dip and enjoy all the great flavors of this deli classic sandwich!

Egg roll wrappers bubble up while cooking, leaving a light and crispy exterior. They are a must try! For a gluten free option substitute the egg roll wrappers for rice paper rolls. They are a thinner wrapper and cook quicker so reduce the cooking time by half.

I have included 3 cooking methods in the recipe below, air frieddeep fried stove top and oven baked. My personal favorite way to cook egg rolls is air fried. Not only is it a healthier option with less oil used but it is also much quicker as you don’t need to hover over the oven frying egg rolls in batches. Instead just pop them in the air fryer, set it and come back to perfectly cooked egg rolls.

What is in Reuben Egg Rolls?

ingredients to make reuben egg rolls
  • Corned Beef – a salt-cured brisket of beef. It is a salt and tangy meat that is the star of a Reuben sandwich. I buy mine regular sliced from the deli and chop it up into bite sized pieces for the egg roll filling

  • Swiss Cheese – the classic cheese on a Reuben sandwich is swiss but you can substitute with mozzarella or any cheese of choice

  • Sauerkraut – another classic topping of a Reuben sandwich is this tangy fermented cabbage that is incredibly nutritious and healthy

  • Egg Roll Wrappers – egg roll wrappers are found in the refrigerator section of grocery stores (beside the chilled salad dressings and tofu).
    • For a gluten free option use rice paper rolls instead.

  • Thousand Island Dressing Optional – serve your egg rolls with the tangy Thousand Island dipping sauce to get all the great flavors of a classic Reuben sandwich

How to Reheat Reuben 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)
