Zaatar Spring Rolls Recipe

Zaatar Spring Rolls Recipe

Place a slice of cheese (about the thickness of your index finger) along with mint in the middle of the wonton wrapper. Then roll it up while slowly tucking in the corners as you roll. Then, I roll it up, spray it with olive oil and sprinkle the za’atar spice.

Next, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven, but you can also fry them if you prefer.

These za’atar spring rolls sambousek are golden crispy on the outside, soft and salty on the inside, and utterly addicting all over! Dip them in my homemade labneh (Arabic yogurt cheese) for a perfect bite!


-Thaw wraps at room temperature if using frozen ones. They stay more pliable that way as compared to quickly microwaving them. I found it’s the best way to make sure they don’t easily break while handling them.

-Fry them instead of baking them. For us, we love how these taste baked and the healthier alternative. However, if you prefer to fry these, you can heat the oil to 350°F and place rolls flaps down a few at a time in a large skillet, and fry until golden.

-Freeze before baking. Since I use halloumi cheese, which is non-melting, the cheese doesn’t usually ooze out. For most other firm white cheese, it may get melty and seep from the egg wrappers. So I would advise you to freeze the egg wrappers before baking in the oven to keep the cheese intact in the middle.
