Egg Bagels

A perfect start to the day often includes devouring one of these treasures.  There are many variations you can experiment with, too.  Every day can be a new adventure in breakfast, or any time!

The key is to obtain a cute little “Egg Pan” for starters.  I got mine at Walmart for about $4.00.Bagel1 Great investment, I use it all the time!   Have a can of “Pam” or other no-stick agent at the ready.

  • 2 Whole Wheat Thomas Bagel Thins (I prefer the “Everything” flavor)
  • 4 slices thin sliced honey ham
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 t fresh tarragon–chopped
  • 1 Roma tomato, chopped fine
  • 2T  onion, chopped fine
  • S&P to taste
  • 2 Thin sliced sandwich size pieces Monterey jack or cheddar cheese

 

Bagel2For each Egg Bagel:

Lightly spray bottom of pan with spray.
Crack 2 eggs into pan and stir.
Add 1 t tarragon.
Add 1 T onion.
Add half of the tomato.
Add S&P to your taste, and stir to combine with the egg mixture.
Place pan on low heat, cover, and cook until egg mixture expands to the top of the pan, and when lightly shaken, the eggs appear to be cooked solidly through like an “Egg Pattie”.  It should easily lift away from the pan. This should occur within 5 to 7 minutes on a low heat setting.
Open  bagel in half, and place 1 cheese slice on the bagel top.
Place the honey ham on top of the cheese
Dump the Egg Pattie onto the bagel top, and place the bottom on the Pattie.
Flip bagel over onto the serving plate, and cover with your hand, a bowl, or a paper towel to melt the cheese and warm the ham .
Repeat steps with remaining ingredients to make the second bagel.Bagel3

Serves 1 – 2 depending on how hungry you are!

Here are just a few of my favorite versions to try:

Variation 1)
Omit honey ham
Add about 1 – 2 tablespoons of your favorite summer sausage—chopped small– into the egg mix
Variation 2)
Replace ham with 2 – 4 perfectly cooked strips of your favorite bacon
Variation 3)
Replace ham with a sausage or turkey Pattie (usually pre- cooked, just heat in the microwave a minute!)
Replace Tarragon with 2 t Italian seasonings
Variation 4)
Omit ham
Replace Tarragon with 2 t Cumin
Add 2 t Tajin Mexican Spice
 
Enjoy!
