How long to fry an egg roll?

I have some home made Philippine egg rolls called Lumpia. They are ground pork and spices. They are much thinner than an egg roll, more like spring roll size. The pork was cooked and then rolled in the thin wrappers and then frozen. How long do I have to deep fry them to brown the wrappers and heat up the pork?

Thanks.

Until they are done. Use your eyes, don't have the oil too hot or the outside will be done before the inside. Probably 350F, then drop them in, don't overcrowd. if think like you describe, they should be done when golden. Try one, count at a steady pace until you think it's done, take it out, cut into it. If done to your liking, then do the rest the same.

Would taking them out early to let them defrost be better?

...
But on the flip-side, if the oil is not hot enough the food will be incredibly greasy.

Yes, thaw the egg rolls before frying unless you want to burn up the wrapper before the inside it thawed and heated through. Heat oil to 375F (190C) and cook for 3-5 minutes. Like Wyogal said - do one and test it, then adjust your cooking time accordingly.

I reheat frozen egg rolls in the oven - brushed with a light coating of oil and baked at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

I'm not sure the egg rolls are pre-cooked.

These are pre cooked but the wrapper is not cooked. The wrapper must be fried in oil.

That's why you brush it with oil... the oil will fry it in the oven at 350 (most recommended frying temperature), and it won't get soggy or soak through.
