Ingredients

  • 1 bagel
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more for buttering bagel
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 thin slice Cheddar cheese
  • 2 rashers of bacon

Directions

Slice the bagel in half. Toast in toaster oven or griddle. Butter the cut sides.

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and fry until crisp.

While the bacon cooks, heat a skillet, and add the butter. Carefully crack both eggs into the skillet. When the whites begin to set, puncture both the yolks.

Top one of the eggs with cheese and bacon. Place the remaining egg, yolk-side down, on top of the bacon. Transfer the eggs onto one half of the toasted bagel. Top with remaining bagel half and lightly press together. Serve immediately.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
