Bacon and Egg Roll

16 Apr

This is my version of the bacon and egg roll, and it shits all over the Red Hill one. I didn’t even try to make it super fancy by adding stuff like sauce or fried onions, though I did add some avocado for colour. It cost around a quarter of the Red Hill one and tasted much better, and was ridiculously simple to make. I originally made it with 2 eggs, but that made it a bit eggy. 1 thick rasher of rindless bacon, 1 egg, some avocado, plus salt and pepper. Easy!

Poor James got food poisoning in Sydney (I was going to say “caught food poisoning” but it’s not contagious. Maybe I should have written “James was food poisoned “). We’re not entirely sure if it’s food poisoning or a stomach bug, not that it matters. James was a bit worried that if it was a stomach bug I might get it, but I have a crazy strong immune system. I haven’t been sick in about two and a half (maybe three?) years.

I’ve been taking care of James since Wednesday evening, and when I made this on Friday morning it was the first meal he ate with gusto. Actually, I lie. I’d bought him a borek from the Vic Market, and that was the first meal he ate with gusto. Then he said he was still hungry so I made him this roll after I saw him sneaking peeks at mine.

Bacon and eggs would have had a better macro breakdown, but there’s something about stuffing everything into a roll. Maybe cos you get to cradle it in your hands like a soft little hamburger.

      I want my brat with cheese and onion, and I’m not paying 50c each (it’s 50c right? I can’t remember) for like .. half a cent worth of cheese and onion. ><

      Also James said the brat is messier to eat than the boreks.

    80c each now whihc is silly but overall its still under $10 for a sizeable meal… i get everything + horseradish & heaps of tobasco… just soooo good *drool*

    boreks are awesome… but that bratwurst is one of melbournes true culinary stars, i seriously put it above a lot of the meals i have had at 2 hat & 3 hat restaurants for pure enjoyment
