Deep-fried bacon, egg and cheese sushi

You can guess who inspired this :P I woke up on Christmas morning and lay there in bed thinking about random things and then started thinking about what to make for breakfast, and I wanted to make a conglomeration of everything I love breakfast-wise and deep-fry it. So here it is:

Start with two bacon weaves. You make these by weaving the bacon, putting them on cookie sheets, and baking them at 350 for 10 minutes, drain, flip, cook another 10 minutes, take out of oven and let cool for a few minutes and then trim off the burned edges.

Make a large flat omelette on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, consisting of 12 eggs or so, depending on the size of your cookie sheet. I made a mistake and cut them a bit more narrow than the bacon on the sides and ended up having to trim the bacon to make the ends of each roll even. So make the omelette squares the same width, but a bit shorter on the length cause when you roll it it'll stick out otherwise. My omelette was a bit too thick for my taste, and a tiny bit overcooked so I'll make it thinner and watch it better next time.

Cut nice big slabs of cheddar and put them in the middle:

Roll it up tight and tape it all around so it doesn't come apart:

Slice into roughly 1" pieces and set them out on a cookie sheet with more parchment paper and then put in the freezer for an hour or more to freeze them completely solid so they don't unroll when you remove the paper to fry them:

Take silly pictures of amusing random household objects while you're waiting for them to freeze:

Preheat your deep-fryer. Then make some beer batter. Once the batter is made, take them out of the freezer a few at a time so the rest don't defrost while you're frying the first batch. Remove the tape and parchment wrapping, coat it in batter and fry till golden. I made a cheese sauce to go with it by making some bechamel and adding some Imperial cheese (use something cheaper if you want, we just happened to have some in the fridge for Christmas) and pepper to it.

Ooey-gooey crispy goodness!

The cheese sauce was a bit...I dunno it didn't go that well with it so I put some mild salsa in and then it was delicious!

Here's a chocolate-covered pretzel that I wrapped in pastry dough and fried, it was so good!
