This week on Top Chef the Quickfire Challenge was “impress a sushi master”.  Probably one of the hardest challenges yet.  I mean, sushi masters are incredible with their knife skills, flavor profiles and presentation.  I would be sweating bullets if I was in that kitchen!  How about you?

Chef Joshua Valentine got my wheels spinning when he whipped out the bacon.  Bacon + Sushi = unheard of….but he could be on to something.  Had he gone the more breakfast route – maybe he would’ve impressed chef Katsuya Uechi a little more and not ended up in the bottom?  Who knows!  I did love that Brooke made Tako (octopus).  That’s my sons favorite sushi (he’s 11 – go figure).California Roll Breakfast Sushi 3

A rolled up tortilla stuffed with bacon may not impress a world class sushi master, but it will definitely impress the little foodies in your house.  It definitely did mine.   Only complaint – the hubs wished there was more!California Roll Breakfast Sushi 4

This is my version of the Quickfire challenge to impress a sushi master.  California Roll Breakfast Sushi 5

Think “California Omelette” wrapped in a flour tortilla, rolled up tight and drizzled with a spicy Sriracha sour cream.   Oishii!!  (that’s delicious in Japanese)California Roll Breakfast Sushi

California Sushi Roll

An easy recipe for California Roll Breakfast Sushi using just a few ingredients and it's done in a flash.


  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 6 tablespoons milk, divided
  • 4 tablespoons jack cheese, divided
  • cooking spray
  • 2 flour tortillas (I used carb balance wheat tortillas)
  • 4 strips crisp bacon
  • 1/2 large avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 large tomato, sliced
  • For the Spicy Sour Cream:
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha (or other hot sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon milk


  1. Coat a medium skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. In a small bowl whisk 2 eggs and 3 tablespoons milk until incorporated. Pour into the hot skillet. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese and cook without stirring for 3-5 minutes, until the top is no longer wet. You may need to turn the heat down so you don't burn the bottom.
  2. Place the tortilla over the egg and gently flip them out on to a cutting board. Place 2 strips of bacon in the bottom 1/4 of the tortilla (closest to you). Top with 1/2 of the sliced avocado and tomato. Roll up as tightly and gently as you can. Allow to rest for a second and then slice with a sharp knife into sushi rolls. Repeat the process with the remaining eggs, cheese, etc.
  3. In a small bowl mix the sour cream, sriracha and milk. Drizzle over the sushi rolls and serve immediately.

I have a working relationship with Social Chorus and Bravo TV’s Top Chef.  All opinions are my own and are priceless.

Photography is brilliant! It looks so good it must taste good too!

Why is this called “Sushi” when it has no sushi rice?

Why is it called “California Roll” when it has no crab and avocado only?

brittnee May 6, 2013 - 11:04 am

probably because it reminded her of a cali roll, inspired by breakfast and sushi. it made sense to all the rest of us… being its a playful little treat for her fam. [as she explained above]

Oh my goodness that sounds delish! My seven year old son is in love with sushi (he got a sushi set for Christmas) and I think he would get a total kick out of helping to make this!

FarmgirlGourmet January 29, 2013 - 8:44 am

How cool is your son? I want a sushi set for Christmas! 🙂

They are so easy to make Julia. My son was loving it!! He keeps asking for other types of sushi now. 🙂 I think the next kind will be crab & egg. Yum! Thanks for commenting. 🙂

diabeticfoodie January 27, 2013 - 9:45 am

I love this idea!

Eileen January 26, 2013 - 8:20 pm

OH MY. I was thinking actual fish-based sushi at first–and I would totally eat that for breakfast, now that I think of it–but this? This is genius. Bacon avocado egg roll, come to my mouth!

Muna Kenny January 26, 2013 - 7:09 pm

What a beautiful way to start the day, This is the type of breakfast I’d like to have!

Grace January 26, 2013 - 4:58 pm

These are the kind of hearty breakfast I love!!!

FarmgirlGourmet January 26, 2013 - 4:11 pm

Hearty and tasty. Thanks for commenting sweetness! xoxoxo

andrea April 4, 2013 - 7:24 pm

Hello, this is such a good idea, can’t wait till I get to make this for my boyfriend and I. Question, do you have any alternative for the sauce and instead of using sour cream that will go with this dish? Thanks!

FarmgirlGourmet April 5, 2013 - 9:42 am

You could skip the sriracha and sour cream all together if you’d prefer. Or maybe substitute just salsa. It’s very versatile to whatever your craving. 🙂 Enjoy!!

Rachel August 10, 2013 - 4:00 pm

We are going to make these for breakfast tomorrow and I’m going to try subbing the sour cream with some Greek yogurt. I’ve done it for a few Mexican dishes and didn’t miss the sour cream at all!
