Meet Your New Favorite Breakfast Sandwich.
I make this at least once a week as a late breakfast early lunch and is why I always have cooked bacon on hand. The combination of not only flavors but texture is what makes this so good!
Mashed avocado, crispy bacon, scrambled eggs with chives, melty cheese and peppery arugula sandwiched between a toasted bakery bagel – what’s not to love about that?
To Make This Everything Bagel Breakfast Sandwich You Will Need:
- bakery-style everything bagel
- cheese (optional)
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- snipped fresh chives
Start by cooking 3 to 4 slices of bacon. Typically I use center cut bacon because it tends to be leaner. Once crispy, transfer to a paper towel lined plat to drain.
Meanwhile, mash 1/2 a small avocado. Of course you can do this directly on the bagel.
And toast an everything bagel. I prefer to use bakery-style bagels or even these air fryer everything bagels. In my opinion, bakery bagels are way better and commercial brand named bagels.
Once toasted, swipe the mash avocado on one side and top the other half with a slice of American cheese – or cheese of your preference. I make this with and without cheese and both ways are delicious.
Top the avocado with the crispy cooked bacon.
Beat 1 to 2 eggs using a whisk. I use 2 eggs because I like the extra protein, but that might be too much for some.
Spray a small nonstick skillet with olive oil spray and heat over medium-low.
Pour in the thoroughly beaten eggs.
Stir until starting to scramble. Then use your spatula to push the edges of the eggs inward, shaping it into a disc – somewhat the same size as the bagel.
Do not flip yet.
The eggs won’t be entirely set yet, so season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste and sprinkle with snipped chives. Use a spatula to flip the eggs over. Cook until eggs are set and no longer runny.
Place the chive “scrambled” eggs on top of the bacon.
Top with arugula if desired.
If you want the cheese to be melty you can add it on top of the eggs or pop the sandwich into the microwave.
A delicious classic breakfast sandwich that never disappoints.
