The breakfast saga continues. Well, it isn’t really a saga, but the posts on bagels made into breakfast continues. Why bagels, you say, what is this fixation on bagels? Well, because they are tasty, versatile, and really filling. When I eat a bagel breakfast, I truly don’t get hungry until lunchtime. Not only that, but you can go as spartan or a lavish as you feel, depending on the day. We have a wonderful local bakery that supplies the co-op with bagels, and they’re just perfect; chewy but smooth-grained, a nice variety but not too many options.
This breakfast on a bagel is simple, tasty, and somewhat…odd. Basically we had bagels, Orange wanted eggs for breakfast, and we also had some Yves Meatless Pepperoni...and there you have it, a tasty and protein-rich breakfast in hand. The other bagel is a basic 7 seed bagel with some neufchatel and toppings. Check it out and enjoy!
Add egg to a small amount of butter in a nonstick skillet. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cook thoroughly and turn. Toast bagel, place on plate, and add tomato. Put cheese on egg and turn heat on low or turn off, allowing cheese to melt. Slide egg with cheese onto bagel and tomatoes, add pepperoni, and serve. Enjoy!
This bagel combination appeals to the more traditional bagel idea, with neufchatel cheese and tomatoes.
1 7-seed bagel, sliced & toasted 1-2 oz neufchatel cheese ¼ cup diced tomatoes sprinkling of salt or spice of choice
Toast bagel and allow to cool for a minute then spread neufchatel on each half to taste. Sprinkle on generous amount of diced tomatoes, then sprinkle with salt or spice of choice. I had some new truffle salt (“with 10% REAL truffle”) – that lovely Granola has been urging me to expand my salt collection, which I’ve been happy to comply with. So I sprinkled the smallest bit on one bagel half, and the other half I appealed to my inner child and used Spike. If you don’t know Spike and have never tried it, it’s definitely worth purchasing for your cupboard. We enjoy it sprinkled on buttered popcorn, and tomatoes, and even mixed in with mashed potatoes.
