Ingredients:

  • 2 bagels, sliced in half
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 slices of cheese (cheddar, American, or your favorite variety)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Butter or cooking spray, for cooking

Step-by-Step Guide:

  • Cook the Bacon: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon slices until they are crispy and golden brown. Remove from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess grease.
  • Toast the Bagels: While the bacon is cooking, toast the bagel halves until they are golden brown and crispy. You can do this in a toaster or under the broiler in your oven.
  • Scramble the Eggs: In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs until they are well beaten. Season with salt and pepper to taste. In the same skillet used to cook the bacon, melt a little butter or heat a small amount of cooking spray over medium heat. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are scrambled and cooked through.
  • Assemble the Sandwiches: Place a slice of cheese on the bottom half of each toasted bagel. Top with a generous portion of scrambled eggs, followed by two slices of crispy bacon. Finally, place the top half of the bagel over the bacon to form a sandwich.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Serve the breakfast sandwiches immediately while they are still warm and the cheese is gooey. Enjoy them as-is or pair them with your favorite breakfast sides, such as fresh fruit, hash browns, or a hot cup of coffee.

  3. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bagel: Substitute the bacon with cooked breakfast sausage patties for a classic breakfast combination.

Freezing and Reheating Instructions:

Freezing: To freeze your Breakfast Bagel Sandwiches, allow them to cool completely after assembling. Individually wrap each sandwich tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn. Place the wrapped sandwiches in a freezer-safe bag or container, making sure to remove as much air as possible before sealing. Store in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.

Reheating: When ready to enjoy, remove the frozen sandwich from the freezer and unwrap it from the foil or plastic wrap. Place the sandwich on a microwave-safe plate and loosely cover it with a paper towel. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat the sandwich in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed to your liking. Once reheated, serve immediately and enjoy your convenient and delicious breakfast!
