There’s a reason why this Cheesecake Factory™ appetizer has a cult-like following; it’s the exact same reason why we had to make a copycat version. It tastes just like the original, you know, the one with a crispy egg roll exterior, creamy avocado filling and cilantro-cashew dipping sauce. MORE+ LESS-

  • 1
    In blender, place Sauce ingredients. Cover and blend 1 to 2 minutes, scraping down sides several times, until nearly smooth. Set aside.
  • 2
    In deep fryer or 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 3 to 4 inches of oil to 350°F.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix avocados, tomatoes, red onion, 1 tablespoon cilantro, the lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir to completely blend.
  • 4
    In small bowl, beat egg and water. Place 1 egg roll skin on work surface with one corner facing you. Brush 1/2-inch border of skin with egg mixture. Spoon about 1/4 cup avocado filling in middle. Fold corner facing you over filling, tucking point under. Fold in, and overlap right and left corners. Gently roll egg roll toward remaining corner, and press to seal. Repeat with remaining egg roll skins and filling.
  • 5
    Fry egg rolls, 3 at a time, in hot oil 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Cut egg roll in half on the bias. Serve with sauce.

Expert Tips

  • To dice avocado, cut in half, and remove pit. Using large spoon, scoop flesh from skin. Place one half avocado cut side down on cutting board. Make two horizontal cuts to make three planks, then cut lengthwise into strips. Turn 90°, and cut again. Repeat with other half of avocado.
  • When assembling, cover egg roll skins or uncooked egg rolls with damp paper towel to prevent drying out.
