  • 2 Bagels Chili Pepper and Cheddar
  • 2 tbsp Cream Cheese
  • 6 slices Deli Ham
  • 1/4 cup Colby Jack Cheese grated
  • 3 Eggs

Salt and Pepper (to taste)


    • Cut the bagels in half horizontally using a serrated knife. To give the bagels texture, toast the bagels in a toaster or in the oven on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 3-5 minutes. 
    • While the bagel is still warm, spread 1 tbsp of cream cheese on each bagel. 
    • (optional but preferred) In a saute pan over medium-high heat, toast the slices of ham on each side until the natural sugars in the ham begin to caramelize and brown.
    • Layer three slices of ham on each bagel sandwich on top of the cream cheese.
    • Crack the eggs in a small bowl and whisk to combine, and add salt and pepper, to taste, and whisk to combine.*
    • In the same saute pan over medium heat, cook eggs to your preferred doneness. (I like soft-set scrambled eggs for less messy eating) 
    • During the last minute of cooking the eggs, top eggs with cheese to melt the cheese. 
    • Place the eggs on top of the ham, and top the sandwich with the top half of the bagel.

    • Slice in half vertically, and enjoy!


    *If making for a crowd, eggs can be baked in a sheet pan or a muffin pan in the oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Eggs can also be prepared your favorite way. Sunny side-up eggs or over-easy eggs would be delicious too!
    The bagel sandwich can be customized to your favorite combinations.
