Reuben Eggs Rolls are crispy on the outside and filled with a creamy mixture of corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing.
All the flavors of a Reuben sandwich, minus the rye bread, but a crispy egg roll wrapper more than makes up for that. The insides of these egg rolls are a little sweet and a little tangy and wonderfully rich and creamy.
Great for St Patrick’s Day, gameday, or a party appetizer.

Ingredients Needed for this Recipe:
- Cream cheese– regular or reduced-fat can be used.
- Thousand Island Dressing– Russian dressing can be used instead.
- Deli Corned Beef– Pastrami can be used instead or leftover corned beef.
- Shredded Swiss Cheese– I buy a block of cheese and shred it myself.
- Sauerkraut– be sure to squeeze it to get rid of excess liquid. You don’t want your egg rolls to get soggy.
- Egg Roll Wrappers– look for them in the produce section of a well-stocked grocery store.
- Vegetable oil– for frying.
Reuben Egg Rolls Recipe Tips:
- Best eaten right away, but leftovers can be reheated in an air fryer or toaster oven.
- The more egg rolls you roll, the better you will get at it.
- Don’t stuff them with too much filling or they will be difficult to roll up and you risk tearing the egg roll wrapper. It’s a real bummer when that happens!
- Heat the oil to 350 to 360 degrees. A deep-frying thermometer is handy for this.
- You don’t need to fry these egg rolls long. Only until they are golden on all sides.
