Allison Day


I can’t start my day without breakfast. I get cranky, and lightheaded, and, well, it’s not a pretty picture. For me, breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day (unlike some other people, who refuse to eat breakfast!) So, since certain people refuse to believe my diet consists of anything other than sushi, it makes sense for me to come up with a breakfast sushi.

Because… um… this is what I eat for breakfast every morning. Riiiiight. (Heck, if I had the time and energy in the morning to make this, I would eat this for breakfast every morning!)

Bacon, tamago, and green onion. All perfect in sushi. But it needed something else, something to make it truly a breakfast roll. Shoyu just didn’t do it for me, and maple syrup… way too sweet. Maybe, just maybe… yep, I know what you’re thinking, and yes. I did. A mixture of shoyu and maple syrup did this roll justice, and finished it off perfectly.

If you ever wanted sushi for breakfast? This is your roll.

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 12 strips bacon
  • 2 batches tamago
  • 6 stalks green onion
  • 1 tbsp shoyu
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Fry the bacon to the crispiness you prefer.
  3. Make the tamago.
  4. Wash the green onion, cut the long green stalks off of the white bulb-like things. Discard the white bulbs.
  5. Mix the shoyu and maple syrup well.
  6. Roll the sushi, using two strips of bacon, some tamago, and a stalk of green onion as your fillings.
  7. Drizzle with the shoyu/syrup mix.

    It may not have been your intention, but all this has done is solidify my belief that you do not consume anything but sushi. πŸ˜‰ Looks great, though!

  2. joann says:

    Looks great! Very creative. Maybe could use fried Spam as a sub for the bacon too.

  3. Yvo says:

    lol, you can have onigiri for breakfast… musubis… whatever you want to call them! Come on… not just rolls!

    PS Sure you can make this for breakfast; if your rice cooker has a timer, set it so you wake up to the smell of fresh cooked rice; by the time you’re out of the shower (if you shower in the mornings) you can prep the sushi rice and then whip out the rolling stuff… presto! Umm… maybe that’s just the bento-in-me talking…

  4. Allison says:

    Joel – Well, darn.

    joann – Yep, you could use spam, or smoked salmon, or ham, or even sausage. Really, most any meat would taste delicious!

    Yvo – Well yes, of course. πŸ˜‰ Too bad my rice cooker doesn’t have a timer. Plus I’m too lazy to do that much work first thing in the morning. πŸ˜€

    I totally feel the same way, I must eat breakfast or else I become a BIOTCH!

    You have an awesome breakfast regimen!

  6. Janice Cartier says:

    Yummy. Even I would love this. Hi my Nude with Sushi. πŸ™‚

    Oh look at that White on Rice… I cannot believe someone is using that what a great couple and a fab blog. As nice as this one!!
    Hugs to you Alllison

  7. Allison says:

    White on Rice Couple – Yep, breakfast is necessary! If only this were a real breakfast regimen, and not just wishful thinking. πŸ˜‰

    Janice – Yep, I’ll bet you would. πŸ˜€ I agree, they do have an awesome blog. It’s on my list of blogs I always love to read. Hugs back at you! πŸ™‚

  8. Yue says:

    HA! This sounds so good! Of course we might have to subsitute the bacon with… TURKEY BACON!!!!!! HOMG! Because Yue does not eat mammal!!!!!!! >.< Well next time I should but this in my tamago crazy bento (NO joke it’s like a f-ing sea of yellow in my bento) which I just made. I better buy some bacon now.

    And if you donÒ€ℒt have time to make it in the morning, why not make it the night before and eat the next morning. Because on MY mornings IÒ€ℒm like this =_= and canÒ€ℒt physically do anything till my friends come over and scream at me for putting juice instead of water in my coffee machine.
