Grand Lux Cafe Double Stuffed Potato Spring Rolls combine the crisp, crunchy texture of a spring roll and the savory goodness of a baked potato in one appetizer. When I first tried these, I knew they simply had to be recreated. What makes these stuffed potato appetizers so special? These aren’t just your average spring rolls – they’re superior loaded baked potato spring rolls.

If you ever find yourself in Las Vegas, a world of delicious food awaits you at the Grand Lux Cafe. You will enjoy an inspired dining experience in an elegant but relaxed setting. Part of The Cheesecake Factory Company, this upscale, but casual eatery, is unique.

The mashed potato filling has a wonderful touch of green onions, and the spring rolls are topped off by the flavors of smoked bacon and cheddar cheese. These mashed potato appetizers just taste so good. Now, you can make them at home even if you live nowhere near a Grand Lux. These spring rolls are also the perfect way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

These potato appetizers are perfect if you’re throwing a party. It’s just amazing what can go inside a spring roll wrapper. The rolls are served with sour cream because they wouldn’t be genuine loaded baked potatoes without sour cream making an appearance.

Can These Spring Rolls Be Frozen?

Yes, you can make a bunch at a time and just freeze them. The next time you want some loaded baked potato spring rolls, all you have to do is take them out of your freezer and pop them into some hot oil. It’s great to have these on hand anytime you need an appetizer on the fly because friends dropped by with hardly any notice. Or, if you feel lazy one day and don’t want to cook, you’ll remember that you stored a bunch of spring rolls, and you’ll be thankful that you did.

What Are the Best Wrappers to Use?

You can use egg roll wrappers. Another good choice, if you can find them, is Tyj Spring Roll Pastry, which has a crunchier texture when fried than egg roll wrappers. Your best bet, if you have one near you, is a Vietnamese grocery store. Also, you can find a variety of wrappers on Amazon.

A Few Tips for the Perfect Mashed Potato Spring Rolls

  • Make sure you roll your spring rolls tightly. If there are any air bubbles inside, the filling will ooze out of your wrappers and into the oil.
  • Place the rolls in the freezer for about 30 minutes before frying. This firms up the potatoes and dries out the wrappers a bit.
  • Fry the rolls in batches so that you don’t overcrowd the pan and drop the temperature of the oil.

  • Russett potatoes
  • Heavy cream
  • Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 pound russet potatoes, peeled, and chopped into large chunks
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream you may want to add a little more
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 package spring roll wrappers (you can use egg roll wrappers)
  • 4 ounces applewood smoked bacon
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  • Mashed potatoes Place peeled and cut potatoes into a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring the saucepan to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer, simmer potatoes for 15 - 20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. When potatoes are tender, drain off the water, and mashed potatoes with a hand masher, add butter, and heavy cream, blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  • Chop the green onions into small 1/4 inch thick slices. Add 1/4 cup of the sliced green onions to the mashed potatoes and resume the remaining green onion slices for the garnish.
  • Slice bacon into matchstick slices, and cook bacon until the bacon is browned and crispy. 
  • To make spring rolls: I like using fresh spring roll wrappers, I found the ones that need to be re-hydrated could be difficult to work with. Add about 1 1/2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes to the spring roll. Roll the spring roll, and secure the ends with a bit of water. Repeat until you have either no more mashed potatoes or no more spring roll wrappers. 
  • Cook spring rolls: In a deep pan, add enough oil to cover the bottom 4 inches of the pan with cooking oil. Heat oil until it is about 350 degrees. Add a few spring rolls at a time to the oil, cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Drain spring rolls on paper towels.
  • Cut spring rolls diagonally in half. Place spring rolls on a serving plate, garnish with cheese, cooked bacon, green onion tops, and serve with sour cream.

    While we are talking spring rolls or egg rolls, consider Philadelphia cheese-steak egg rolls, get some sliced roast beef (not much) at the deli, and some sliced cheese, fry up some onions and add sauce of your choice. They are really WOW.

    INGREDIENTS
    1 1/2 tablespoons butter
    1 green bell pepper chopped
    1/2 cup onion chopped
    1 pound boneless rib eye steak sliced or coarsely chopped
    salt and pepper to taste
    6 slices provolone cheese
    12 egg roll wrappers
    oil for frying
    ranch for dipping optional
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Melt half of the butter in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the peppers and onion and cook 3-4 minutes or until softened.
    Remove the vegetables from the pan and cover to keep warm.
    Melt the other half of the butter and add the rib eye to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes or until browned and just cooked through.
    Place the peppers and onions back into the pan with the steak.
    Lay out an egg roll wrapper and place 1/2 of a slice of cheese in the center.
    Spoon approximately 2-3 tablespoons of steak filling onto each egg roll wrapper and fold according to package directions, using water to seal the edges of the wrappers as you go.
    Pour 2-3 inches of oil into a deep pan. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
    Fry 3-4 egg rolls at a time, turning occasionally, until browned all over, approximately 3-5 minutes.
    Drain on paper towels, then serve with dipping sauce of your choice.

    NOTES
    If you prefer to bake your egg rolls, you can coat them with cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until browned and crispy.

    I loved these when we visited Vegas, have tried to recreate them a couple of times and the efforts not half bad! Ill be doing them again this evening 🙂

  3. Ilene Ruth

    I added the cheese, bacon and green onions to the mashed potato mix and also used as garnish. Truly double stuffed now 🙂

    Wow! Thank you so much for posting this! I live in Montreal and I truly think these are up there on my favorite food list (egg rolls- mashed potato- bacon = HEAVEN) and now I can make them at home… since I’m nowhere near a Grand Lux!

    I used to work at the grand lux and one important part of the potato rolls was they need to be frozen before deep frying to keep the filling from bursting out

    • Baltisraul

      Same is true for fried chicken. If you have trouble with keeping the coating on while frying, 12-14 min in the freezer solves that issue. Putting solid frozen food in the fryer seems like you are about to have a mess to clean up?

  7. Kelly

    I used to work at Grand Lux Cafe as a waitresses. I absolutely love there chicken soup. I have some ideas but not sure. Can u help?

  8. Fran

    It’s amazing what can go inside a wonton wrapper. I like doing savory as well as sweet, but never thought of potatoes. Sounds pretty good. I’ll bet there’s something that would work with sweet potatoes too. Hmmm… have to ponder that for a while.
