Another recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, Wisconsin
Okay, this may not be the typical breakfast served at a Bed & Breakfast, but we aren’t typical. We like to experiment with different recipes, sometimes making dinner for breakfast. We try a lot of recipes, not only for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner too. When we have something for lunch or dinner that we really like, Mike (my better half) and I usually say “how can we incorporate this into breakfast.” After all, we are a bed & breakfast. That’s how the Breakfast “Egg Roll” was born.
By way of background, we relocated to Northern Wisconsin from Chicago, where we were spoiled on the food front–we could get almost any kind of food we wanted. There just is not the variety of foods up here that we had become accustomed to, but I am not complaining. The beauty, peace, and tranquility of the Bayfield WI area far outweighs any minor inconvenience of not having as many food options.
We really enjoy good Chinese food, but have had a hard time finding anything that we like (and we are not particularly fond of the frozen stuff), so I decided to try out some recipes. One of which was a deconstructed egg roll recipe from The Gourmet RD. It has wonderful flavors, truly mimicking an egg roll, with minimal frying. After the first couple of bites, Mike and I started thinking about how to make this into a breakfast entrée. At first I made a scramble incorporating the deconstructed egg roll mixture, it was tasty, but did not present well. It got me thinking about the baked omelet roll I have made in the past (inspired by My Menu Pal) and after a bit of experimenting, and a lot of eating (we probably won’t be craving Chinese food anytime soon), we came up with the Breakfast “Egg Roll” served with fried rice, which we plan to introduce as a breakfast entrée (the third course of one of our many three-course breakfasts at Pinehurst Inn B&B). You can easily customize this recipe to your particular taste by spicing it up or by substituting ground pork, turkey or chicken, or your favorite veggies for the breakfast sausage.
This recipe is for the Breakfast “Egg Roll”. If you don’t feel like making this but want to try it, you can always reserve a stay at Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast and request the Breakfast “Egg Roll” for breakfast. We would certainly try to accommodate the request. We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
