  • Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, until well combined, about 1 minute. Increase heat to medium. Add milk gradually. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbling, about 7 minutes. Add shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir the sauce until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Beat egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl.

  • Lay 1 egg roll wrapper on a work surface. Fold 1 piece of ham in half and place in the center of the wrapper. Top with a half-slice of Swiss cheese and a chicken strip. Cover with another half-slice of Swiss cheese and folded piece of ham. Brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg mixture; fold wrapper in half over the filling and seal the edges. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place egg rolls in the hot oil; fry until crispy, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
