It’s only Wednesday but I’ve already got “weekend breakfast” on the brain.
A “weekend breakfast” is the kind of breakfast that you indulge in on a day when you don’t care about calories (because we all know that calories don’t count on weekends). Maybe your Saturday morning will involve some fluffy pancakes, or a huge stack of waffles, or even some yummy apple pie (there’s no judging here). Last weekend I decided to combine two of my favorite breakfasts into one fantabulous meal.
This meal is part egg in a bread/hole (depending on what you call it), part avocado toast, and 100% ridiculously delicious. I say that one egg and half a bagel is one serving because the bagel is beefier than a slice of toast but if I’m being honest I could have eaten the other half too. I’ll let you decide how far to take it.
I’ve been craving this egg breakfast ever since I made it the first time. It’s pure genius, if I do say so myself. What’s not to love about a buttery pan fried bagel with egg and avocado? Nothing, I tell you. I’m seriously obsessed with this meal and can’t wait for Saturday morning to whip it up again. Fair warning, you will be obsessed too when you make it. 😉
What’s on your menu for breakfast this weekend? (Or worded differently, what will you be enjoying without the calories?)
Avocado Egg In A Bagel Recipe
- about 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1 bagel
- 2 large eggs
- 1 avocado, sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- crushed red pepper, to taste
- In a pan, on Medium heat, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the butter.
- Cut the bagel in half the way you would if you planned to put cream cheese on it.
- Take a small cup and press the rim of the cup into each slice of bagel to cut out a circle. Remove that circle of bread.
- Place each holed out bagel into the pan and cook until the bottom side turns a golden brown.
- Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
- Flip both bagel slices over and reduce the heat a little bit.
- Immediately crack an egg into each bagel hole and cook it like a fried egg. There are two approaches for this (I used option B):
- Once the egg is mostly cooked, flip it over and cook the other side. (Typically this works pretty well even if you went all the way to golden brown on the first side, but if you plan to go very firm on the egg, you may not want to cook the first side as long.) You can stop at any time as long as the whites are cooked and the yolk is as firm as you like it.
- Or to get the egg pretty looking, you can use the poach fried egg approach by adding a tablespoon or two of water into the skillet (depending on the size of your skillet) and covering it until the egg yolk is as firm as you like it.
- To prepare the sandwich:
- Place the egg in a bagel onto a plate.
- Add half of the avocado slices.
- Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
