Mini Pepper Jelly Eggroll Bites // This is an easy appetizer idea and a great new way to use pepper jelly! | Tried and TastyToday is a bit of a special day around here at Tried and Tasty. I wanted to do something big and extravagant, but I decided to hold off until next year. Today marks 4 years of blogging for me. Four years. Where in the world have they gone? It’s been so fun sharing all of my tried and true recipes with so many. So much time and energy has been poured in to the last four years on this site and I’m so grateful for all who support me and my passion. In deciding what I wanted to share with you I came to this conclusion: I love Tried and Tasty and I LOVE all things mini, so why not these adorable mini egg roll bites?! When I went to my FB fans asking if any liked pepper jelly, I was given lots of great ideas on how to use it. For me, it’s always been just over cream cheese and served with crackers. I have loved all of the ideas! If you missed it, you’ll want to check out the Sweet Pepper Jelly Brie en Croute – that’s a great recipe. I’m not sure how I came up with this idea, but it turned out so fun! It’s a great little appetizer for any party (perfect for football season). If you’ve got pepper jelly in the pantry – here is another great way to use it. If you don’t, I would recommend you make some because it’s delicious!

Mini Pepper Jelly Eggroll Bites are such a fun and tasty appetizer!



  • 18-20 Wonton Wrappers
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. pepper jelly
  • Water


  1. In a large pot, heat oil (I used Canola) on medium-high.
  2. Mix together cream cheese and pepper jelly.
  3. Spoon 1 tsp. of mixture in to center of wonton wrapper and roll egg roll style. Secure ends with water.
  4. Fry in for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain excess on paper towel.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
Because the bites cook so quickly, I would recommend working in batches of 5-6 mini egg rolls at a time rather than trying to fry them all at once. That seemed to work great for me. I wanted a dipping sauce of sorts, and even tried these with sweet & sour sauce, but because the filling is so sweet they don't even need a sipping sauce at all. They are perfect to enjoy all on their own!

      These are SO tasty!!! Glad you like them. I’ve never made them ahead of time. What I would suggest is assembling them ahead of time, then frying them up when you are going to serve them!

    CONGRATULATIONS for accomplishing all the work & EFFORT that, I’m certain, has gone into your four years of Blogging and cooking! I love Pepper Jelly, and like you, I’ve only used it with cream cheese and crackers; so thank you for sharing your appetizer idea!!

    1. Yvonne

      Thanks!! Just passed the five year mark a month ago – crazy how time flies!! These eggrolls are SO delicious! Great way to use up some of that pepper jelly!

    Just found your site Yvonne and man what good looking recipes you have. I would love to make these but am a little concerned. When you roll the won ton wrappers and then fold the tops over and put it in the grease it stays? I have never cooked with won ton wrappers before so this will be new for me. I am just afraid when I do it all the cream cheese and jelly will run out the won ton wrapper. Do you use just an inch or two of oil in a skillet or put them in a fry daddy? Thanks so much for any help you can give and I look forward to seeing more of your recipes. Happy 4 years on your site.

      Hi Diane! You are so kind, thank you! Yes surprisingly they will stay – you secure the wrappers with the water which will almost ‘glue’ the seams. Some will escape, but the majority of it will stay. I have just used a skillet. I don’t have a fry daddy. Either would work the same I’m sure. Enjoy!

    Happy 4 years! I don’t really know when my blogiversary is, because I started but then really got into it a couple years later… Anyway, these are so cute and seriously look delicious. I love cream cheese wontons, so putting just a little pepper jelly in them too. YUM!
