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*
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!
