What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • Meal prepping? Breakfast egg roll in a bowl is a perfect Whole30 or Paleo recipe to make-ahead so you can save valuable morning time.
  • It’s got a healthy serving of protein and fat to keep you full and satisfied until lunch.
  • If you don’t eat pork, don’t worry! You can use ground turkey or ground chicken and it will still be amazing.

Key Ingredients

Sriracha – Tangy. Spicy. Garlicky. Sweet. I love it. Unfortunately, traditional premade sriracha contains sugar, so it’s a Whole30 no-no. Fortunately, I found out it’s actually really easy to make your own. You can find my DIY Whole30 (and vegan, paleo, and sugar-free) sriracha recipe here.

Mayonnaise – Mayo gets a lot of undeserved hate, in my opinion. It’s creamy, rich, and adds a little zing to just about anything. It can be really difficult to find a Whole30-compliant mayo at the store, though. Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayonnaise is a great option in a pinch, but I prefer to make my own.

Coconut aminos – This is a soy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, and lower-sodium alternative to soy sauce, which is PERFECT for Whole30 compliance.

Mango – Not only are they a yummy, juicy source of fiber, but mangoes are full of vitamins and antioxidants that bodies love. Plus, they’re easy to find at the grocery store year-round.

Chef’s Tips

  • For easy drizzling, place some of the creamy chili sauce in a sandwich bag and snip off the corner. Voila!
  • “Cooking” garlic becomes “burning” garlic pretty quickly, so be careful. Saute until it’s just fragrant.
  • If you’re meal prepping your breakfast egg roll in a bowl, store your creamy chili sauce separately from your egg roll mixture.
  • Frying an egg can be trickier than you’d think. For the best results, use a non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot and the ghee is melted, slowly pour in your egg from a small bowl. Cook until the egg whites are set but the yolk is still soft. Remove immediately for sunny-side-up, or flip and cook an additional 10-30 seconds for over-easy eggs; 30-60 seconds for over-medium eggs; or 1-2 minutes for over-hard eggs. Season with salt and pepper!

For the Creamy Chili Sauce

  • In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and hot sauce. Add a pinch of salt, to taste.

For the Toppings

  • Fry eggs in 1 tablespoon ghee
  • Coconut aminos are a MUST for Whole30 compliance, but if you’re not Whole30, you can substitute your favorite soy sauce instead.
  • Make your own sugar-free sriracha to keep this dish Whole30 compliant, or substitute a compliant hot sauce, like Frank’s Red Hot or Tabasco.
  • Remember, standard grocery-store mayonnaises contain ingredients that aren’t allowed on a Whole30 diet. Opt for something like Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo, or make your own!
  • Make it Low Carb: Leave out the mangoes and water chestnuts.
  • Make it Keto: Leave out the mangoes and water chestnuts, and use soy sauce instead of coconut aminos.

  1. Just came across your egg-roll-in-a-bowl ideas and am loving it!
    We’re not huge mango fans (I know, I know). Is there another fruit you can recommend for this one? Just looking for some ideas! Thanks!

    1. Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team says:

      So glad you like this recipe, Rachel! You could use some sweet and tart apples like Granny Smith or even pineapple in place of the mango, but you could also just omit the fruit entirely. It’ll still taste great!5 stars

    I absolutely ADORE this recipe! Actually made it for dinner tonight as opposed to breakfast. Any recipe that has a meat AND a fruit in it? I’M ALL IN!

    The pork sausage I used was a sage flavored pork sausage (because that’s what I had on-hand). Highly recommend that. The entire recipe put together? A party in my mouth! 🥳 🎉. Definitely an A++!5 stars
