Fun, easy and flavorful these Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls take a classic dish and turn it upside down into a fun appetizer!
Ok, so I have to admit…my household has a slight addiction to Chinese food. Like when I say slight, I mean epic. It’s horrible and we should probably seek help but we just can’t help ourselves, we are total and complete junkies. Sadly our favorite Chinese place has been under-going renovations for the last few months and we have had to go without. Doesn’t keep us from trying to recreate some of our faves at home.
I know you’re probably thinking “this girl is off her rocker, this isn’t Chinese food.” You’re right it’s not, but it is Chinese inspired! Now I typically don’t keep the ingredients on hand for the traditional egg rolls so sometimes we just have to improvise. These Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls have been something we have loved for a while now, it’s so simple but yet is so flavorful.
Love traditional bacon cheeseburgers? Don’t have your grill out anymore due to it no longer being that time of year (at least in Minnesota we have had to finally put them away for the season)? Want to switch up your normal burger routine and try something outside the box? Then you’re in luck, this is the perfect recipe for you and you should seriously continue to read.
Full of beef, bacon, cheese and onions these Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls fry up in just minute and they are a food that the whole family will love! These are very kid friendly (my 2-year-old devoured them) as well as husband approved. So for your next week night meal, fry up a batch of these babies and you’ll have a great alternative to egg rolls that will be a new family favorite!

Have made these several times and never have any left! Thanks for the great recipe
Yay thats so good to hear! I so need to update this post with new photos, but I’m so happy you guys love them!
I’m still kind of new to cooking so I may ask a very silly question. The recipe calls for heating oil in a deep fryer or a pan to 375°. I don’t have a deep fryer, just a few frying pans and pots. How would I know if oil is heated to 375° if I’m using a pan? Unless I use my electric skillet, which I think has a setting for that temperature. Would this work using an electric skillet? This recipe sounds so good, I really want to try it. Thanks!
Hi Jessica, and electric skillet will work fine. But another way to tell is if you have a wooden spoon, stick the end of the stick into the oil and if it’s around 350-375 bubbles will form around the handle.
Thanks for the tip! I should write that down to remember it! IDK about my electric skillet though, the temperature dial goes from 300°-425°. That’s a huge difference. Hmmmm, do you think using a VERY large pot would work?
Thanks so much for sharing this post on Worthwhile Wednesdays. I’ll be featuring it on my 9th day of the 12 days of Christmas Series: Party Appetizers on December 9th.
