Bagel Sammie

Bagel Sandwiches – Sammies as I lovingly refer to them – are a classic in my home. It all started when I worked at Starbucks as a broke student and brought all the bagels – and other food – home that I could. I would use whatever I had in my kitchen, which was usually onions and eggs, to create filling sandwich. Three years later and not working at Starbucks but still broke, I grab a bagel whenever I can and make my bagel sammie.


  • 1 bagel
  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1/4-1/2 onion*
  • 1/2 green chili*
  • cheese*
  • avocado*
  • butter*


Heat a skillet on medium-high and add some butter or oil. Chop your onions and chili, and add them to the pan. Let them cook about 5 minutes flipping them about halfway through.

Now toast your bagel – everything bagels are amazing for this recipe – and crack your eggs on top of the onions or scramble then add them. Lower your heat a little, and let everything cook until you can flip it easily. It should only take about 1-2 minutes on each side. Next, turn off the heat and add cheese, so it melts.

Pull your bagel from the toaster, throw some avocado on it, and place your eggs/onion/chili/cheese conglomeration on top with the other bagel half. You’re all set to enjoy!

*Everything but the bagel is optional here. You can add bacon, a meat or non-meat burger, lettuce, pickled onions, hummus, sriracha, even french fries, or fried chicken; you name it. It will still be delicious!

Flip it! P.S. I think if it gets a little charred, it actually adds more flavor
Yum yum!
