This breakfast sandwich is not only tasty, but it’s also easy to make and customizable to your preferences. Whether you’re in a rush or have time to savor your breakfast, the egg in a bagel is the perfect choice. So next time you’re in the mood for something different for breakfast, give this recipe a try!

Ingredients Overview:

*You can cook fewer or more bagels, just adjust the number of eggs and toppings. 

Bagels: Any type will work. Use a sharp knife to cut your bagels evenly. You will want them to cook up at the same time, so it’s important to make sure they are cut in half perfectly.

Eggs: You will need an egg for each half of the bagel. 

Cheese: I like Mozzarella and Feta, but any cheese of choice will work. 

Toppings: (completely customizable): Chopped mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. Feel free to season however you would like.

Can I Make Egg in a bagel Without Bagels?

If you don’t have any bagels on hand, you can use sliced bread. Simply cut a hole with a cookie cutter into your slice of bread and follow all the directions the same as you would for a bagel.

Recipe Adaptation Ideas:

This bagel egg-in-a-hole recipe is excellent as is, but it’s also a concept you can customize however you like. Here are a few ideas:

  • Everything (but the) bagel: Use an everything bagel as your base or sprinkle everything but the bagel seasoning over the top.
  • Spice things up: Sprinkle chili flakes or drizzle Sriracha on top. 
  • Fat: Butter each bagel half before placing it on the baking sheet.
  • To make gluten-free: Use gluten-free bagels.
