  • 6 egg roll wrappers
  • 2 Tbsp. water or use an egg wash
  • 6 sticks of string cheese
  • Cooking spray


  1. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a large plate or cutting board with one of the four points pointing toward you (it will look like a diamond shape).
  2. Moisten the edges lightly with the water.
  3. Put a stick of cheese in the middle of the egg roll wrapper horizontally from the point on the left toward the right.
  4. Fold the cheese into the egg roll wrapper like a burrito: Starting with the corner closest to you, fold the corner up and over the cheese so that it is almost touching the opposite corner. Now you have a triangle with a cheese stick running along inside the base of the triangle.
  5. Fold the two side corners in and over the ends of the stick of cheese.
  6. Roll the cheese up the rest of the way, keeping the side corners tucked in, to the remaining corner.
  7. Make sure the edges are sealed.
  8. Repeat the above with the remaining egg roll wrappers and sticks of cheese.
  9. Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  10. Lightly spray all sides of the egg rolls with cooking spray.
  11. Arrange rolls in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer with as much room between them as possible.
  12. Cook until browned in places and crunchy, 6-7 minutes.
