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).

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!

This is my version of the Quickfire challenge to impress a sushi master.  

California Roll Breakfast Sushi

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)

An easy recipe for California Roll Breakfast Sushi using just a few ingredients and it’s done in a flash.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 3 Servings


  • 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
  • ½ large avocado sliced
  • ½ large tomato sliced

For the Spicy Sour Cream:

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha or other hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon milk


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In a small bowl mix the sour cream, sriracha and milk. Drizzle over the sushi rolls and serve immediately.

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

  11. 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?

    1. 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]

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

    1. FarmgirlGourmet Author says:

      Hearty and tasty. Thanks for commenting sweetness! xoxoxo

      1. 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!

        1. FarmgirlGourmet Author says:

          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!!

          1. 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!
