Bacon and scrambled egg rolls




I was inspired to try to do Bacon and scrambled egg rolls by some that I saw on Foodgawker.  I have done ham lined rolls with whole eggs in them before but have sometimes had issues with the egg white leaking.

First pre-heat your oven to a moderate heat.

Hollow out your dinner rolls.  I bought par cooked ones but didn't bake them before filling them since I figured they would cook at the same time as everything else.

Line each dinner roll with thin slices of ham.

Cook a rasher of bacon until crispy and cut it up.

Whisk your eggs (1 per roll) until they are well combined.

Pop your egg mixture and bacon bits into each roll, put a little grated cheese on top, a drop of chilli sauce and a sprinkle of paprika and into the oven they go until the egg is set (about 10 minute)

Garnish with chilli or a fresh herb and serve.

Mine weren't as pretty as the Foodgawker  ones but then I didn't exactly follow their recipe either.  Constitutionally unable to strictly follow a recipe – that's why I don't bake – or at least one of the reasons I don't bake.
