How to make a bagel breakfast sandwich
- Toast your bagel-prepare the bagel by toasting it with butter in the oven. This will also help get that glazed buttery look. This step comes first so it has time to cool and to soak up the butter before touching to eat.
- Cook the sausage-using pre shaped sausage patties helps cut down on time. Just cook according to directions whether that be in the oven or skillet.
- make the egg-make egg like you would an omlette and let cook all the way through. Then, sprinkle cheese on top. Cut into 4 squares.
- Assemble your sandwich- place one side of the bagel down, then add sausage, and egg with cheese on top. Place other bagel half on top. There you have the bagel breakfast sandwich recipe made!

Breakfast Bagel Sandwich Recipe
- 3 tablespoon butter
- 8 bagels
- 8 preshaped circular sausage patties
- 4 eggs
- 8 slices cheddar cheese
- On 2 9 x 13 baking sheets, place each bagel half flat side up. Butter the flat side. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes or until the flat side is slightly toasty.
- During the 10 minutes, in a large skillet, cook sausage patties over medium heat until they are cooked throughout. Flip over about halfway through.
- While both the bagels and sausage patties are cooking, in a small bowl, crack 2 eggs and beat them with a fork. Add any seasonings you want. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium sized skillet. Add in eggs. Do not scramble them just let them cook how they lay in the pan like you would an omlette. Put a lid on top to allow them to cook faster. Once the top is slightly hard, add 4 slices of cheese evenly spread throughout. Put lid back on to help cheese melt.
- When cheese is melted and eggs are done, cut the eggs like a pizza into 4 pieces. Remove eggs from skillet and place on a plate. Repeat steps 3-4 with remaining 2 eggs.
- Once bagels are toasty, remove them from oven. Place eggs and sausage on a flat side of the bagel. Assembly by putting other half of bagel on top. Serve bagel breakfast sandwiches hot!
