Egg Tortilla Chimichanga Rolls

Bacon and Egg Tortilla Rolls – An Anytime Kind-of Meal!

My son loves breakfast tacos, sushi rolls, and fried burritos (that Tex-Mex creation known as Chimichangas), so this morning I combined them (why not, right?). The result was impressive… both beautiful and delicious. These bacon and egg tortilla rolls are the perfect quick-and-easy snack or app to brighten up your day!

This recipe is a great keto-friendly snack or meal. If you’d like to make this a complete AH Phase 1 meal, serve it with a side of slow carbohydrates. We suggest pairing the rolls with a side of berries. Berries are a great way to end the meal on a sweet note, while easily incorporating slow carbohydrates. If you’re following the Phase 3 variation (with a traditional whole wheat tortilla), the meal will still be Phase 1 ratios.

QUICK TIP: We use Chipotle Mayo in this recipe – but you can choose another sauce for dipping! Check out our Green Chile Mayonnaise recipe, or add fresh herbs to our Basic Mayonnaise recipe for a delicious dip.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp oil (neutral-flavored)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 3 slices turkey bacon, chopped
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla (or use Keto-Tortilla recipe, link in directions)
  • avocado, sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil, for frying at the end
  • Chipotle Mayo or fatty sauce of choice
  • 3/4 cup blueberries, for serving on the side

Instructions
 

  • Pour a thin layer of oil in a small fry pan (tortilla-sized). Turn temperature to medium and wait for oil to heat up.
  • While the oil is heating, warm the tortilla in a toaster oven or on a dry, hot cast iron skillet. See this post for our Keto tortilla recipe.
  • Mix together the whisked egg and chopped bacon. Pour into the fry pan with the oil. Cook until the bottom is lightly browned, but the top is still runny.
  • Place the tortilla on top of the eggs before they fully cook (this helps the tortilla stick to the eggs). Cook for a few minutes, until eggs are fully cooked through.
  • Lift the egg and tortilla off the skillet as if you are turning over an omelette. Lay it flat (tortilla side down) on a cutting board.
  • Add a few slices of avocado on one edge of the tortilla. Roll it into a tight spiral around the avocado.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a fry pan over medium-high heat. Fry the roll on all sides until brown and crispy.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Slice into 1-inch rounds and serve with Chipotle Mayo (Always Hungry? pg. 268), Fresh Salsa (Always Delicious pg. 302), or toppings of choice. Serve with 3/4 cup blueberries.
