See the recipe card below for amounts and instructions.


  • Don’t have turkey? No problem! Swap the cooked turkey with leftover ham or even chicken. Or go meatless.
  • Use green bean casserole, matchstick carrot sticks, or another veggie instead of stuffing or potatoes.
  • Dip your egg rolls in gravy instead of cranberry dipping sauce. Or eat them plain if you are not a sauce lover.
  • Consider slicing Brie, Swiss, or even a little mozzarella and adding it to the filling.
  • Feel free to change up the filling to any of the leftovers you have on hand. Experiment to find what works for you.

Tips for Making Egg Rolls

  • Have all your ingredients laid out and ready for assembling the egg rolls.
  • Don’t overfill the eggrolls or they will be hard to seal and stay together.
  • You can deep fry or air fry your egg rolls. The choice is yours.
  • Make sure to add egg wash around the edges of the eggroll wrapper as this acts like glue.
  • Serve your eggrolls warm and fresh, as they will offer that crispy texture. If you don’t serve freshly cooked they will get soft.
  • Rotate the egg rolls during cooking to ensure all sides are evenly cooked.

Common Questions

Can I make Thanksgiving leftover egg rolls ahead of time?

Yes, you can make and freeze the egg rolls for 2-3 months. Or you can prep and refrigerate for 24 hours. Then fry them in the air fryer when ready to enjoy.
If you are cooking from frozen, add a little extra cook time to ensure they are heated all the way through.

Can I bake the egg rolls instead of air-frying them?

Yes, you can bake these turkey egg rolls. First, preheat the oven to 375°F. Then place the egg rolls on a lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Make sure to flip halfway through. Cook until warmed all the way through and golden brown in color.
