Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Egg Rolls

Egg rolls are a popular appetizer in Chinese cuisine, with a history dating back to the Tang Dynasty in the 7th century. Originally called ‘dan gun’ or egg rolls, they were made with duck eggs, minced meat, and vegetables wrapped in a thin dough and deep fried. However, the egg rolls we know today, with a crispy outer wrapper and a variety of fillings, are believed to have originated in the early 20th century in Chinese-American restaurants.
