Egg in a Bagel Recipe

Egg in a Bagel Recipe



Egg in toast is a popular breakfast dish known by several other names, including One-Eyed-Jack, Winkie, Egg-in-a-Hole, and Bullseye. It is a simple and filling meal that is quick and easy to prepare. This recipe incorporates a favorite breakfast food, the bagel. To make the meal healthier, you can add spinach and cheese.

The key is to cut the bagel into three slices instead of two. The cooking time will vary depending on how soft or firm you like your egg yolks.


1 whole grain bagel or another type of your choice

½ teaspoon butter

1 egg

Salt and pepper to taste

Handful of fresh spinach leaves (optional)

1 to 2 tablespoons grated cheese (optional)


Slice the bagel into three rounds. Set a cookie cutter about 2 inches in diameter over the bagel hole and press down to create a larger hole.

Set a frying pan over medium-high heat. Melt the butter and then add the bagel.

Crack the egg in the center of the bagel so the yolk settles in the hole. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook for a few minutes until the bagel is lightly browned and the egg white begins to set. Flip the bagel with a spatula. Season the other side with salt and pepper and continue to cook until the egg is done to your liking.

If you want to use spinach, add it to the pan and sauté until it is wilted.

After the egg is cooked, transfer the bagel and egg to a plate with a spatula. Put the wilted spinach and cheese on top, if desired.
