Hubby's DELICIOUS Recipe for Breakfast Bacon and Egg Roll-Ups

You Can Never Go Wrong with Bacon & Eggs for Breakfast!

Like many women, I spend the majority of my time in the kitchen.  There are always meals to prepare, lunches to pack, snacks to assemble, and dishes to wash.  I know.... I'm preaching to the choir!

On the weekends, my hubby loves a hearty breakfast, but since I've already devoted enough of my time to meal preparation, he is willing to fend for himself.  This is good news for the rest of our family because necessity is the mother of invention, and it's during these times, he creates some delectable new dishes.

My all-time favorite breakfast is my husband's legendary bacon and egg roll-ups and seasoned potatoes, and he always makes them for my birthday and other special occasions. I've observed him putting the bacon and egg roll-ups together many times, wanting to replicate and share his tasty recipe, but he doesn't measure any of the ingredients.

At the bottom of this article is a printable recipe for the bacon and egg roll-ups, but since the measurements are merely our best estimates, you may find yourself tweaking them a scoche.  As I detail each step below, it will hopefully turn out eggs-actly like it's supposed to! 

Step One:

Crack an egg in a small dish and add a splash of milk, probably 1/2 teaspoon.  Whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Next, spray an 8-inch skillet with cooking spray before pouring the egg mixture into it.  

Step Two:

Using a sweeping motion, sprinkle all the seasonings evenly across the surface.  You will use a minimum of 1/8 teaspoon of each, but, depending on your personal taste preference, you may add a tad more.  Using 1/4 teaspoon would definitely be too much.

Step Three:

Sprinkle cooked bacon evenly on the egg mixture.  My hubby finely dices 3-4 slices of bacon and cooks it in the skillet beforehand, but it's also fine to cook each bacon strip whole and then crumble it.  Just know that the texture of smaller crumbles is better than large chunks.

Step Four:

Sprinkle cheese across the top.  You will use at least 1/4 cup, but here's what it should look like when you have the right amount:

Step Five:

Cover the skillet with a lid while you cook the roll-up on medium-low to make sure it cooks all the way through, since you won't be flipping it.  The second you notice the cheese is melted, it's done, which takes only 2-3 minutes.  If you cook it too long, it will get that browned, yucky burnt egg flavor, so you can avoid that by watching closely for the short time it takes to cook.

Step Six:

You want your egg to be a roll-up, not a scrambled blob, so you have to take some care in removing it from the pan.  Tilt the skillet at an angle toward your plate and use the edge of the spatula to gently push your egg concoction into a roll.

The downside of this recipe is that you can only make one at a time.  If you're feeding a crowd and need to mass produce, this isn't the ideal recipe.

However, if you're only cooking for one or two or your family wakes up at different times, this is one of the best bacon and egg combinations I've ever had.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
