While these are great for on-the-go mornings, eating out can cost more than making your own breakfast and may add unwanted inches to your waistline. Below is a quick breakfast you can make in less than 10 minutes and you can wrap it up to go with you to eat on your way to work or school.
What You Will Need
- Scrambled Eggs (2)
- Pre-sliced Begal

Making a Scrambled Egg Sandwich
Step 1: Scramble the eggs and form into a shape small enough to fit on your bagel.
NOTE: If you aren’t sure how to scramble the eggs click here to find out in seven easy steps.
NOTE: If you want to add vegetables to your scramble such as finely chopped spinach, red peppers, or mushrooms, do so before the eggs are completely cooked. This will help hold everything together on the sandwich.
Step 2: Lightly toast your bagel while the eggs are cooking.
Step 3: Using a spatula, all at once scoop up the scrambled eggs and gently place on the bottom half of the toasted bagel.
Step 4: Top with a slice of cheese.
NOTE: If you don’t have sliced cheese you can add shredded cheese to the scrambled eggs in the last stages of cooking to melt the cheese into the eggs then place the egg and cheese mixture on the bagel.
Step 5: Top with bagel and slightly “smash” to hold the sandwich together.
Step 6: Serve with bacon or sausage as an added treat.
NOTE: You can microwave bacon or a single serve sausage patty to save time.
Making a bagel sandwich is a quick and easy breakfast before work or school. In ten minutes you can have a healthy, delicious alternative to a drive-thru and save money at the same time. Add a piece of fruit, a glass of milk, or green tea for a balance meal. You can also substitute an English Muffin or Whole Wheat toast for the bagel.
