So, what’s in a great breakfast sandwich?  Let’s start with the bread — there are so many ways to go, but as is clear from the title of this post, there is something eternally fantastic about a bagel.  It’s substantial all right; no bread makes a more satisfying base than a bagel. 

The type is completely up to you: plain, sesame, poppy, everything….I’d steer clear of the cinnamon raisin in this case, unless you are my mother-in-law who is a firm cinnamon raisin fan, even when the toppings are savory.  I do not and never will understand a cinnamon raisin bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese on it, but that’s the beauty of food — each to his/her own.

What is in a Breakfast Sandwich?

So a bagel it is.  Then bacon, eggs, and cheese.  The holy trinity of breakfast sandwiches.  But don’t stop there.  A bit of hot sauce to pick things up a notch, and then slices of creamy ripe avocado, peak-season tomatoes, a slice of onion, and maybe a leaf or two of crunchy lettuce to give it even more texture.  Gorgeous, satisfying, sustaining.

How to Make the Ultimate Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

Place a large skillet over medium heat and melt a bit of butter.  Place the bagel halves cut sides down in the pan, and cook until the bottoms turn golden, 1 to 2 minutes.  Remove and set aside.

Beat the eggs, and season them with salt and pepper.  Melt a bit more butter in the pan.  Pour in the eggs and as the bottom sets use a spatula to lift up the edges of the eggs and let the uncooked eggs run underneath.  When the bottom is almost cooked, but the top is still slightly wiggly, lay the cheese slices over the middle of the eggs.

Let the eggs cook for another minute, then fold the sides of the eggs over the middle, so that it takes on a rectangular omelet shape.

Slide the omelet out of the pan onto a cutting board.  Cut the omelet in half, so that you have a square-ish piece for each sandwich.  

Place the cooked eggs on the bottom of the bagels. Place the tomatoes on top of the eggs, then layer on the avocado, bacon, onion, and lettuce (if using), and give it all a generous squirt of Sriracha or other hot sauce.  Cover with the tops of the bagels.
