Egg Roll Up: Bacon, Basil + Greens (Whole30, Paleo, Keto, LCHF)


Not My Genius Idea… But A Genius One None The Less!

The first time I saw an egg roll up was from Eat Drink Paleo, and I was in AWE of the simple genius of the idea! The reshaping of whole food ingredients into a hand held, fun, delicious and filling meal… that right there is my jam! Case in point: my paleo sushi rolls. Luckily I always have eggs on hand. Then I just grabbed whatever else was lurking in my fridge. Bacon. Arugula. Oh, Basil! Mayo. A little cashew cream for the egg. Salt, Pepper… oh mustard. Oh and Avocado. Ok… let’s rock and roll.

This combination turned out so extraordinarily delicious I have replicated it various times since. The last, being the welcome home meal for my husband and brother in law after their 139 mile bike ride around the island of Oahu (where we live)! The boys were raving about these, and my brother in law, on his way back to Arizona said it was his favorite thing he ate in my house all week… and as you can imagine when I have guests, I like to pull out all the stops when feeding them… so that’s saying something.

Nailed It!

You can really make it anyway you want. I love the addition of basil and arugula here. These super tasty herbs and greens add fresh and tangy flavor. The avocado adds creaminess and the crispy bacon in the omelette gives it a welcome crunch and saltiness. Seriously, while you can always make these how you wish, I urge you to try it with the basil and all. I really feel that I hit it out of the park with the flavor combination here!

I have tried it with the bacon INSIDE the wrap. It works too… but the bacon tends to tear up the egg. But putting the bacon in the egg, you get the goodness AND structural integrity. We eat these with our hands folks. Just sayin’.

Meal Prep

While I think one sheet pan counts as meal prep for ONE person. At least one person who eats like me…. a lot. Two sheet pans is ideal for a family. Just double the recipe and rotate the sheet pans in the oven half way through baking so they both cook evenly.

MAYO!

Here are two great options!

Ingredients

  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup nut milk (I like my cashew creamer for this)
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • tsp of mustard
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup cup chives
  • 2 handfuls fresh, whole basil leaves
  • 1 cup fresh arugula
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 3 tbsp paleo mayo
  • Things You Will Need
  • 1 half sized sheet pan with a 1 to 2 inch rim (21x15in)
  • a blender
  • parchment paper
  • coconut, avocado or other cooking spray, ideally.

Instructions

    Cook The Bacon + Prep
  • Lay your bacon flat on a baking sheet, all in a row, the slices should not touch or overlap. Pop the sheet pan in the oven, middle rack. Set to 400F.
  • Once the oven reaches temp, check on the bacon, it will be par cooked. Set a timer for 8-10 minutes. That should be enough time for it to cook up nice and crispy.
  • In the meantime, prep the rest of your ingredients. Crack the eggs into the blender. Add in the salt, pepper, milk and mustard. Dice up chives. Get your basil leaves and arugula ready.
  • When the bacon is ready, remove from the oven. Use tongs to transfer the bacon to a cutting board. Don't turn off the oven!
  • Drain the fat from the sheet pan (to a jar, you better save that goodness).
  • Line that same sheet pan with parchment paper. Center it as much as possible so the sides reach the rim. Leave a little slack on either end so you can pull on it later. Then grease on the sheet pan will make it easy to flatten and smooth out the paper! Win!
  • Let's Get Cooking
  • Spray the top of the paper lightly with oil.
  • Crank that blender and whiz up the egg mix for 30 seconds.
  • Make sure your sheet pan in on an even, flat surface when you pour in the egg mix. If it's not settling evenly, help it out with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle the chives evenly all over your eggs.
  • Chop up the crispy bacon and sprinkle over the egg as well.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are golden and the center is completely set (it shouldn't jiggle at all).
  • Remove the sheet pan from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.
  • Let's Transfer & Flip & Roll!
  • Check to see if your omelette is stuck to the parchment paper. If it's not, pick it up carefully and place it bottom side up on the cutting board.
  • If it is sticking to the parchment paper, then use the parchment paper to slide it onto the cutting board. Then flip it quickly. Peel the parchment paper, starting on a corner and using your fingers to old the omelette down.
  • Once all the parchment paper has been removed, use a spatula to smear mayo all over this bad boy.
  • Starting about 2 inches from one end, lets say the left side, arrange your avocado slices in a vertical stripe. Next the basil leaves and then the arugula, alternating until you have about an inch left.
  • Make sure your avocado is flat and there aren't any hard edges, for these could puncture your egg.
  • From the left side (where you have the two inches) gently pick it up and pull it over your avocado then fold in with your fingers and begin to roll it as you would a burrito. If it tears a little at the sides in the first or second pass, don't worry, the outer layers will still hold it together.
  • Once you've rolled it up and have a massive egg log. Yes, it will be beastly! Slice it up. I like to cut it into 2 inch pieces.
  • Serve right away to a crowd or store in an airtight container for meal prep.

  1. Wow! These are so fun! I think my toddler would totally dig this - hand held and portable so she can keep moving! Thanks!
    1. Thanks! Yes my son loves these too! I blend the greens right into the eggs for him and fill with bacon. His green eggs and ham!
  2. This is just like a cake roll, but so healthy and protein packed, this is going on my 'to make' list right away!
    1. Oh yeah! I never thought of that... but then again... I have never had a cake roll! lol
  3. Oh, this is so much yes it isn't funny. I kinda wish I didn't have leftovers ready for my lunch today because otherwise I'd make these for lunch, but no one said I can't have these for an afternoon snack, right? ;-)

    This is just beautiful! The flavor combo is outrageous. I would like to practice rolling with smaller one so I guess I could cut the ingredient in half? Also, I am rolling this left to right vertically correct?
    1. It's a rectangle. So the side that you pull up to roll is the left side in a short side of the sheet pan. Makes sense? And you roll it along the 21in side.
  6. These are so creative and look so yummy! Love that they're Whole 30 compliant, too!
    1. Yes! I'm doing my 5th Whole30 next month and these will be in the rotation!
  7. These look so yum ! They reminded me of a taiwanese egg omelet breakfast recipe. It's my childhood favorite !
  8. I'm doing whole 30 and so this is really appealing to me at the moment, I love all the herbs in tis recipe it looks divine.
  9. What an awesome all-in-one meal!! Love alllll these flavors. And the mayo? Heck YES.

  17. Lisa Bridge-Shorter
    Hi. As it's just me eating this, how long do you think it will keep good in the fridge. I was thinking one slice a day for lunch so it would need to be good for 4 days? Or do you have 2 slices?
    1. Depends how hungry you are. I usually eat one slice. It keeps for about 5 days! Especially if you leave out the avo, that might turn brown. But the egg holds up really well!
      1. Lisa
        Thats great thanks, cant wait to try it tomorrow!
  18. Sadia K.
    What is the alternate to bacon (I cannot eat pork products)?
    1. Hi Saida! You can use turkey bacon :)
