The big game is right around the corner and you know what that means! I’m pulling out all of the stops to make the ultimate buffalo cheesy menu for game day!

My friends at Cabot Cheese have helped me make recipes deliciously cheesy for several years now! From their shredded Fiery Jack cheese on top of this Cheesy Baked Taco Dip to their Garlic Herb Cheddar in this popular Cheesy Mushroom Spinach Puff Pastry recipe, their naturally aged cheddar cheeses are always a hit in recipes!

Cabot is a co-operative owned by 1,000 farm families throughout New England & New York. That means 100% of their profits go back to the farmers! This year Cabot is celebrating their 100th year as a co-operative.

Back in 2015, I flew back east and visited a Cabot farm. I got to meet the cows and ran a race as part of the “Cabot Fit Team”. You can read all about it in this post for Chipotle Maple Chicken SlidersAnd check out pictures of the totally cute baby cows!

In this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, I use Cabot’s Vermont Sharp Cheddar cheese. It is the perfect complement to the buffalo chicken.

These egg rolls really are the perfect appetizer, crispy on the outside, saucy & cheesy on the inside!

How do I make homemade egg rolls?

Homemade egg rolls are actually easier to make than you might think! Start by purchasing egg roll wrappers in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Next, prepare the filling for the egg rolls.

For these buffalo chicken egg rolls, I combined cooked, shredded chicken with buffalo wing sauce, carrots, celery and cheddar cheese.

To assemble the egg rolls, point one corner of the egg roll towards yourself. Brush the edges of the egg roll wrapper with water, then place the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Take the corner closest to you and wrap it over and tuck in under the filling. Fold the two sides of the egg roll wrapper in, then roll the egg roll up.

Once all of the egg rolls have been assemble, pan fry them in about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a large skillet on the stove over medium high heat.

Can you make egg rolls ahead of time?

The filling for the egg rolls can be made ahead of time. I do not recommend wrapping the filling in the egg roll wrappers more than an hour or two ahead of time.

Wrapping the egg rolls around the filling, then placing them in the refrigerator for more than a couple of hours will result in a change in texture of the egg roll wrapper both before and after it is cooked.

I tried cooking two egg rolls that had been pre-made and left in the refrigerator for 48 hours and unfortunately the texture just didn’t hold up.

The cheesy buffalo chicken mixture, however, can be made up to 2 days in advance. Now all you have to do is roll up the filling and cook the egg rolls before serving.

Can you reheat egg rolls?

Egg rolls can be reheated in the oven at 325°F for 8-10 minutes per side. I would recommend spraying the buffalo chicken egg rolls lightly with olive oil before reheating.

What to serve with Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls

Ranch dressing or extra buffalo sauce can be served on the side of these egg rolls to be used as a dipping sauce.

Carrot and celery sticks can also be served on the side.
