Tips for Making Avocado Egg Rolls like Cheesecake Factory
- Buy avocados a few days in advance.
It’s rare to find perfectly ripe avocados at the store, so you’ll need to plan ahead before making this recipe for Cheesecake Factory avocado egg rolls.
You can also ripen them faster by placing them in a paper bag with a banana! The stem of the banana emits a gas that helps ripen produce faster.
- Make the dipping sauce first.
Avocado egg rolls from Cheesecake Factory are best eaten shortly after they are fried, so you want to have the sauce ready to go.
You can even make it a day in advance if needed! Keep it in an airtight container in the fridge, then stir well before serving.
- Deep fry avocado egg rolls.
Fill a deep halfway with oil and heat to 350°F.
You’ll want to use a candy thermometer for accuracy — the egg rolls will burn if it’s too hot, but too cold, and they’ll soak up the oil instead.
Work in batches, letting the oil come back to temperature between each. Fry for about a minute on each side until golden, then drain on a wire rack before serving.
How to Fold Avocado Egg Rolls
First, dip your finger in the beaten egg and brush it along the edges of the wrapper.
Place 1/4 cup of the avocado mixture horizontally in the center of the wrapper, reaching from corner to corner (see image above as an example).
Then, fold in the corners next to the filling and press down around the filling.
Fold the bottom corner up and press over the filling so it is snugly inside the wrapper. Then, roll up to the top corner and press to seal.
Now, your Cheesecake Factory avocado egg rolls are ready to fry!
Kitchen Tools You Will Need
- Tongs – You’ll want to use tongs to move the egg rolls in and out of the hot oil.
- Food Processor – I love using my food processor for making sauces, dips, salsa… You can use a blender if you don’t have a food processor.
- 4-quart Stock Pot – Great for soups, roasts, frying, cooking pasta… I use this all the time!
