Tips
  • How long do leftover egg rolls (Chinese food) last in the fridge or freezer? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions — refrigerate egg rolls within two hours of cooking or purchasing.
  • To maximize the shelf life of leftover egg rolls for safety and quality, refrigerate in covered airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
  • Properly stored, leftover egg rolls will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  • To further extend the shelf life of leftover egg rolls, freeze them; freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.
  • How long do leftover egg rolls last in the freezer? Properly stored, they will maintain best quality for about 1 to 2 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — leftover egg rolls that have been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How long do leftover egg rolls last after being frozen and thawed? Leftover egg rolls that have been thawed in the fridge can be kept for an additional 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator before cooking; egg rolls that were thawed in the microwave or in cold water should be eaten immediately.
  • How long can leftover egg rolls be left at room temperature? Bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F; leftover egg rolls should be discarded if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature.
  • How to tell if leftover egg rolls are bad? If leftover egg rolls develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, they should be discarded.
