  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • 2 tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¾ cup chopped dill pickles


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp minced pickles
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • ½ tsp paprika


  1. Prepare the Beef Mixture: In a skillet, cook ground beef, onions, mustard, ketchup, salt, and pepper over medium heat until the beef is thoroughly cooked and onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Drain any excess grease and set aside.
  2. Assemble the Egg Rolls: Lay each egg roll wrapper on a clean surface in a diamond shape. Sprinkle shredded cheese onto the center of each wrapper, followed by the beef mixture and diced pickles. Fold the sides of the wrapper in, then tightly fold the bottom up. Roll and seal the top fold with a few drops of water.
  3. Cooking Options:
    • To Cook in Oil: Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat until small bubbles form. Fry the egg rolls in batches until golden on each side, about 1 minute per side. Transfer cooked egg rolls to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess grease.
    • To Air Fry: Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Cook egg rolls for 12 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  4. Prepare the Sauce: In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, minced pickles, sugar, mustard, ketchup, and paprika until well combined.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Serve the crispy Big Mac Egg Rolls hot with the special sauce for dipping, and savor the delicious fusion of flavors!
