2 (8-ounce) boxes cream cheese
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3 green onions, chopped
1 lb fresh white crabmeat, flaked or diced
10 egg roll wrappers
Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a food processor, pulse cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and green onions several times until well mixed. Stir in the crab meat.
  2. Lay one egg roll wrapper out with a corner pointing towards you. Place about three rounded tablespoons in the center of each wrapper, creating a short horizontal lump. Bring the corner closest to you up and over, gently tucking it in. Fold in the sides and roll the wrapper tightly. Use a small amount of water to secure the tip of the wrapper. (Refer to package instructions or images on rolling egg rolls if needed).
  3. Heat oil in a heavy stockpot or saucepan to 365 degrees. Fry the egg rolls 2-3 at a time (depending on the size of your pan) for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow the oil to regain temperature between batches. Place the fried egg rolls on paper towels to drain. Serve warm.


Q1: Can I use imitation crab instead of fresh crabmeat?
Yes, you can substitute imitation crab if fresh is unavailable. Ensure it’s flaked or diced for the desired texture.

Q2: Can I prepare these ahead and fry them later?
Absolutely! Prepare the rolls and refrigerate until ready to fry. Just ensure they are at room temperature before frying for even cooking.

Q3: Can I bake these instead of frying?
While frying yields the classic crispy texture, you can bake them at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown for a slightly healthier option.
