A teenage baker has revealed his simple yet genius trick to stop the runny yolk from oozing out of a bacon and egg roll.
To make the breakfast meal, the 19-year-old scooped out the bread from the centre of the crusty bun to create a ‘bowl’ for the filling.

A teenage baker has revealed his simple yet genius trick to stop the runny yolk from oozing out of a bacon and egg roll
‘Let’s make quick and easy eggs and bacon,’ Morgan said in the video.
He started the recipe by slicing the buns in half, before he scooped out the some of the bread inside the base so there’s room for the ingredients.
‘Grab a crusty bread roll and cut out the top, scoop out the inside of the bread roll,’ Morgan explained.
The simple trick will stop the yolk from oozing out all over the roll, or running down your hands while eating. Instead, the bread will soak up all the yolk.
He lined the prepared rolls with cooked rasher bacon, and then he cracked a whole egg directly into the centre, topped with cheese.
How to make Morgan Hipworth’s bacon and egg rolls
Crusty bread buns
Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
Cut the tops off the bread rolls. Scoop out the bread from the centre of the bottom half to create a ‘bowl’ for the filling.
Line the prepared rolls with bacon. Crack a whole egg directly into the centre, and sprinkle cheese over the top. Put the top of the bread back on each roll.
Wrap with foil and place in the oven for up to 25 minutes, or until the yolks are just cooked.
Remove the rolls from the oven, unwrap the foil and serve.
Morgan Hipworth (pictured), founder of Bistro Morgan Bakehouse, shared a TikTok video showing exactly how he made the ultimate bacon and egg roll at home using four ingredients. To stop the yolk from oozing out of the roll, he scooped out the centre of the bread (right)
He lined the prepared rolls with cooked bacon, and then he cracked a whole egg directly into the centre, topped with cheese. Then he wrapped in foil to bake in the oven for 25 minutes
‘Fill it with cooked bacon, and an egg. Top with a sprinkling of cheese,’ he said.
He placed the other half of the bread on top, then covered with foil.
‘Wrap in aluminium foil and bake it for 180 degrees Celsius for about 25 minutes,’ he said.
Once the yolk is just cooked, remove the rolls from the oven, unwrap the foil and serve.
‘And boom, that is some serious yolk goodness. Dig in and enjoy,’ Morgan added.
His video has since been viewed more than 200,000 times, with many saying the trick is ‘genius’ because the egg yolk always oozes out all over the roll, causing a mess, while others revealed they couldn’t wait to try his recipe at home.
