Type of meal : | Breakfasts/Brunches | Breakfasts/Brunches

Special diet :


1 whole wheat bagel
1 egg
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
1 slice smoked turkey or Black Forest ham
2 tbsp (25 mL) grated light cheddar or smoked mozzarella cheese
Hot red pepper sauce, to taste


  1. Slice bagel in half crosswise.
  2. Break egg into a lightly oiled nonstick skillet on medium heat. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until white is opaque but yolk is barely cooked through. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover with a lid, if necessary, while cooking so that egg white firms up but yolk stays just a little runny.
  3. Place egg on bottom half of bagel. Top with smoked turkey and sprinkle with cheese and hot pepper sauce. Top with remaining bagel half.
  4. Grill sandwich in a sandwich maker, grill pan or nonstick skillet, pressing sandwich flat with a heavy spatula to allow cheese to melt. Turn sandwich and press again. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until cheese melts and sandwich browns.
