Bacon and Egg Chimichanga-Style Tortilla Rolls
My son loves breakfast tacos, sushi rolls, and fried burritos (that Tex-Mex creation known as Chimichangas), so this morning I combined them. The result was impressive... both beautiful and delicious.
- 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)
- ⅛ 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
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.
