Instant Pot Exploded Egg Rolls That Will Have you Coming Back for More!

Hey all! Kim from TheWildWaynes here to tell you the story of the Instant Pot Exploded Egg Rolls.

Wayyyyyyyy back in the day (alright, alright, FIVE YEAR AGO) Dave and I decided to make some life changes. Anywho, we jumped on the Keto bandwagon and could not get enough of this “exploded egg roll” recipe. I made/make it at least once at week. Now that we are tiny living (and I am too lazy to get propane) we finally were able to adapt this to the Instant Pot.

Adapting our recipe to create Instant Pot Exploded Egg Rolls

Same perfect flavor, same crunch, same overall just perfect goodness. You must watch the YouTube video (see below) — Hailey makes an appearance and it is wonderful, cute, and perfect. Just like her.
