Bagel Omelette Sandwich

4 Apr


I will never understand how so many people don’t eat breakfast on a regular basis. For me, walking out of the house without eating something feels foreign. Even if it’s a bowl of cereal (contrary to what I may have you believe based on this, this and this, cereal is my typical weekday breakfast), the act alone has some psychological effect that I’ve gotten my carb fix and shouldn’t fall asleep on my first patient. After discussing this with friends, many of whom don’t regularly eat breakfast, I think it all boils down to one thing: time. No one wants to wake up a bit earlier to make breakfast and would rather spend the time it would take preparing and eating breakfast to sleep more or take a longer shower. This is where the bagel omelette sandwich comes into the picture. I frequently make this breakfast for B because the scenario that applies to my friends is also apt for him. The great thing about this breakfast is that it tastes great the next morning. Preparing as much as possible the night before makes for a smooth and stress-free morning routine. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why do we continually miss it? Now we don’t have to.


  • 1 sliced bagel (I used plain, but asiago or onion is great too)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/5 cup diced onions
  • 1/5 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/5 cup diced tomato
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk (I used whole)
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Ketchup to taste
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Salsa


Crack 2 eggs into a bowl. Add milk, salt, ground black pepper. Whisk until well mixed. Add onions, green pepper, and tomatoes to egg mixture and quickly whisk again to incorporate ingredients. On medium heat, warm a griddle or cast iron pan. Spread butter on both sides of bagel and place bagel on griddle. Once toasted, put bagel aside. Onto greased pan or gridle, pour egg mixture. Once bottom side is throughly cooked, add cheese and gently fold over into an omelette. Spread ketchup to taste on toasted bagel and place cooked omelette on top. Add top half of sliced bagel to the sandwich, and slice into 2 halves. Dip sandwich in salsa or enjoy as is.
