From Italian-inspired fried vegetable wraps to lamb-filled Greek masterpieces and sweet desserts, these egg rolls are out of this world.

Traditionally a favorite for Sunday night takeout, egg roll and spring roll wrappers are now being used to house new combinations of ingredients like ground veal with broccoli rabe or roasted chicken with black beans and corn. You can even satisfy your sweet tooth with a dessert version.  Here are seven finger food favorites that will have you rolling with delight (see what we did there?).

Avocado Egg Rolls

The Cheesecake Factory
1 Maple Ave, White Plains; 914.683.5253
140 Market St, Yonkers; 914.709.9240

There’s a reason this appetizer has a cult-like following; it is a delightfully crispy bundle of avocado, sun-dried tomato, red onion, and cilantro, served with tamarind-cashew dipping sauce. And the way the flavors and textures blend? It’s simply transcendent.

Broccoli di Rabe Egg Rolls

25 North Ristorante
974 East Boston Post Rd, Mamaroneck; 914.698.2597

This reliable Mamaroneck powerhouse trades pasta for egg roll wrappers in this fun spin on a classic Italian dish. It will be love at first chomp when you sample this appetizer of ground veal and broccoli rabe rolled up, fried, and served with a spicy chimichurri sauce.

Lamb Spring Roll

Dolphin Restaurant
1 Van Der Donck St, Yonkers; 914.751.8170

The spring rolls at this family-owned Yonkers waterfront establishment come stuffed with ground lamb. Need we say more? Well, we will. They also include celery, onions, carrots, raisins, tzatziki, and chili oil — all encased in a crispy and crunchy wrapper. Make a meal of them with a glass of wine and one of the restaurant’s amazing salads.

Mexican Spring Rolls

Southern Table
39 Marble Ave, Pleasantville; 914.618.3355

The spring rolls here stray from traditional Asian flavors and offer up a flavor combo with a kick. Sink your teeth into a crunchy, yet chewy exterior, filled with chipotle-marinated beef, black beans, and corn for a full-on fiesta in your mouth. For us, part of the whole enjoyable experience of eating spring rolls is also the sauce we’re dipping them in, and the lima cream doesn’t disappoint.

Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls

The Barley House
665 Commerce St, Thornwood; 914.495.3333

You don’t have to be from Philly to love a cheesesteak. And the Philly cheesesteak rolls at this cozy Thornwood haunt take things to the next level. The crispy, deep-fried exterior gives way to uniformly tender meat with warm cheddar cheese for an oozy goodness that will make your eyes roll toward the back of your head. Peppers and pickled onions are served on the side with a sweet chili sauce.

Tex Mex Spring Rolls

Mt Kisco Diner
252 Main St, Mount Kisco; 914.666.5676

Mount Kisco’s legendary diner is known for its deep-fried wraps, but the Tex Mex spring roll is a tasty departure from those over-the-top bundles. Crispy fried wontons house an irresistible combination of roast pulled chicken, black beans, corn, cilantro, jack cheese, and avocado ranch. Make sure you sink a few bites into the chili dip that comes with it!

And, for a rockin’ and rollin’ dessert:

Apple Spring Roll

Underhills Crossing
74 Pondfield Rd, Bronxville; 914.337.1200

Spring rolls aren’t exclusively for appetizers. The apple spring rolls at this Bronxville gem offer all of your favorite fall flavors in one. The flaky, sugared spring roll wrapper is packed with cinnamon-stewed Granny Smith apples, then deep-fried and topped with vanilla ice cream, dark cocoa sauce, and candied walnuts. Think of it as a strudel on steroids.
