Breakfast Roll

Posted By Allison On July 16, 2008 @ 10:42 pm In Maki Recipes | 8 Comments

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 [1], who refuse to eat breakfast!) So, since certain [2] people [3] 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.

Ingredients
  • 6 sheets nori [6]
  • 3 cups sumeshi [7]
  • 12 strips bacon

  5. Mix the shoyu and maple syrup well.
  6. Roll the sushi [9], using two strips of bacon, some tamago, and a stalk of green onion as your fillings.
  7. Drizzle with the shoyu/syrup mix.
