Bacon Breakfast Roll Ups
These delicious roll ups start with bacon that’s pan-fried until crispy but still flexible. You have to wrap the ingredients up, after all. Then, I combine scrambled eggs, sliced avocados, seasonings, and sour cream and wrap it all up in the bacon. After that, these roll ups are served with more green onions and sour cream. It all comes together to create a hearty breakfast that’s full of flavor and protein and so easy to make!

How to Make Bacon Breakfast Roll Ups
Making these roll ups is pretty much like making any other bacon and egg breakfast. It only takes a few simple steps to make!
Step 1: Fry the Bacon
Weave 12 bacon slices like a basket in a large skillet or frying pan, with 6 pieces placed horizontally and 6 placed vertically. Then, fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy but flexible, turning a couple of times while cooking. Remove the woven bacon piece and place it on a plate lined with paper towels.
Step 2: Cook the Egg
While the bacon is frying, combine the eggs, red pepper flakes, and black pepper and scramble. Then, top them with the grated cheese and let it melt.
Step 3: Construct the Roll Ups
Place the bacon on a serving plate. Then, slice the avocados and green onions and add half of each to the top of the bacon. Spoon about half the sour cream on top of the avocado and onions and top with the scrambled eggs and cheese. Sprinkle the entire thing with the remaining green onions, roll up the bacon around the filling, and cut it into 4 pieces. Top with remaining sour cream and avocado slices and enjoy.
