Reuben Egg Rolls

A traditional Reuben usually consists of corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut served on rye bread with Russian dressing. It’s the ultimate deli sandwich. This fun variation, also known as the “Irish” egg roll, incorporates the classic sandwich filling into an egg roll wrapper. My Rueben-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin is another creative take on a Reuben.

If you have leftover egg roll wrappers, try some of my other egg roll recipes. These Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls and Avocado Egg Rolls are always a hit! If you have my latest cookbook Skinnytaste Meal Prep, you will love my Turkey Cheeseburger Egg Rolls! These fun egg rolls are great as an appetizer for a party or as lunch served with a side salad.

Reuben Egg Roll Ingredients:

Meat: I opted for sliced, cooked pastrami, which I found at my local Trader Joe’s, but I’m sure you can find it at most delis.You can use corned beef if you prefer.
Toppings: Just like the sandwich, these egg rolls have lots of sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese. I think some chopped pickles would also be tasty if you want to add some.
Dressing: Instead of putting the Russian dressing inside the egg rolls, which would make them soggy, I use it as a dipping sauce.

How do you make Russian dressing from scratch?

Russian dressing is very easy to make from scratch. Just mix these ingredients together:

  • Light mayonnaise
  • Ketchup
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Horseradish
  • Hot sauce
  • Lemon juice
  • Onion powder
  • Salt

Russian dressing often gets compared to Thousand Island dressing. While similar, Russian dressing is spicier and less sweet than Thousand Island.

Freezer Tips:

  • If you don’t want to cook all the egg rolls at once, you can freeze them in freezer- safe bags for up to six months. Make sure to squeeze out as much air as possible when sealing the bags.
  • To cook from frozen, cook in an air fryer preheated to 320 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, turning halfway through until golden brown and crisp. Serve immediately with dipping sauce on the side if desired.
