Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast Sandwich~ Blooming on Bainbridge Does it sound right to say Bagel Breakfast Sandwich, or should it be Breakfast Bagel Sandwich? Or maybe it should be Breakfast Egg Sandwich or Egg Breakfast Sandwich. Whatever the name; this toasted bagel sandwich with eggs, cheese, bacon, green onions and mayo is TOTALLY addicting. Photobucket Remember I mentioned we had lots of company for several weeks in and around Thanksgiving? Well this breakfast sandwich was the hit of the Thanksgiving holidays. Photobucket Sorry to be posting so many pictures of the same sandwich, but it's like I fell in love with it or something. Once I realized it was such a hit with family and friends I became seriously infatuated with the process of making it and the beauty of it once it was made. Photobucket I am telling you. This is all everyone wanted for breakfast. We made this sandwich. Every. Single. Morning. Photobucket After everyone flew back to Alabama, we continued to make it. I'm probably just going to open up a little hut here on Bainbridge Island and serve nothing but this breakfast sandwich. I'm certain the islanders will be lined up for blocks totally addicted;  just like we've been. Next time I make it for Greg I'm going to use Dave's Good Seed Halos bagel.
If you'd like to join in on the addiction, here's what you need and a step-by-step on how to make it.Photobucket Bagel Breakfast Sandwich
Recipe makes two breakfast sandwiches. 
4 extra-large eggs 
2 large everything bagels {or bagel of choice} 
4 slices of bacon {cooked} 
2 slices of Monterey Jack or Muenster Cheese {or cheese of choice} 
several green onions {roughly chopped and sauteed - green onions are optional}
mayonaise {optional}
1 teaspoon butter 
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper 
2 pieces of parchment paper 
Recipe slightly adapted from Mad Hungry
Photobucket Begin by heating the oven to about 200. Once it's heated turn it off. You may need a warm oven to pop the sandwiches in if you've got several sandwiches to make. Roughly chop the green onions. Photobucket Saute green onions with just a pinch of sea salt. Photobucket Fry the bacon. Photobucket Slice the cheese. Photobucket Toast the bagels. Photobucket Now you're ready to make this happen! Photobucket Put one teaspoon of butter in a non-stick pan. Melt the butter and crack two eggs in the pan. Photobucket Separate the eggs. Gently break the yolks. Sprinkle sea salt and freshly ground pepper on eggs. Cook the eggs on very low heat. Photobucket Lay two slices of bacon on one egg. Photobucket Continue to cook eggs on very low heat. Sprinkle green onions on top of bacon. Photobucket Lay cheese on top of green onions. Photobucket Lay a piece of foil over the pan if you need the cheese to melt fast. Photobucket Meanwhile, slather both sides of toasted bagel with a little mayo. Photobucket Gently lift the egg without toppings on top of the egg with all the toppings. Photobucket Place the eggs on the bagel. Photobucket Sprinkle on more green onion if you like. Top with other half of bagel. Photobucket Fold parchment paper in half. Place bagel between layers. Photobucket Wrap so that bottom half of bagel sandwich is nestled in parchment paper. Photobucket This keeps the yummy juices from dripping all over your jammies. You are still in your pajamas. Right? If you've got another bagel to make, pop this one in the warm oven so that it stays warm. Photobucket This Bagel Breakfast Sandwich is serious eating.
It. Is. Good. Like WAY GOOD!
Why else would everyone in our house be eating them morning after morning after morning.
Happy Week to you sweet friends!
Heart you much!

    1. We love Hawaiian rolls Diana!
      Use them all the time to tail-gate for ballgames with pork tenderloin.
      Now that I think about it we've used them for breakfast too!
