EASY EGG BAGEL
We’ve heard it said a million times, that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day”. Still, we often rush through breakfast as we hurry on our way to work or school. I have a recipe that is my absolute favorite breakfast and best of all – it’s fast and easy to make! When you’re gathering Christmas morning, this recipe will fill your families bellies and get them filled all through opening up the presents. Best of all, clean up after breakfast will be a breeze!
We used to make our breakfast sandwiches by buttering the cup first. It took longer, added in the extra fat of using butter, and while the eggs would come out of the cup just fine, what was left behind was nearly impossible to get off the cup! Our soup mug would sit in the sink for a couple of days soaking and being scrubbed at every time I washed dishes as I dreaded the work it would take to actually clean the mug. Non-stick original cooking spray is a great option to save some time and calories!
HOW TO COOK EGGS IN THE MICROWAVE:
Start by popping a bagel into your toaster. While that is toasting, spray a wide-mouthed mug with a non-stick spray of your choice.
Crack two eggs into the cup and mix the eggs together with a fork.
Then, just pop the mug into your microwave and cook for 80 seconds, or until cooked through.
Microwave times may vary, but your eggs should be cooked through and remove easily from the cup.
Thinly slice a yellow onion.
Lightly butter your bagel as soon as it pops from your toaster.
Add a slice of cheese on one half of the bagel and onions to the other half.
When your cooked eggs are ready, flip over the cup onto your bagel and put the bagel together as soon as your egg finishes cooking to allow your cheese to melt.
You can also add bacon or sausage to round out your breakfast sandwich if desired.
In the end, you’ll have a mouthwatering delicious Egg Bagel Breakfast Sandwich! This is one recipe everyone in our house can’t get enough of.
FAQS ABOUT EGG BAGEL RECIPE:
Q: Will an egg explode in the microwave?
A: If you cook the egg in its shell, then yes, it will. However, for this recipe, no eggs should be in their shell when cooking in the microwave.
Q: Can you overcook an egg in the microwave?
A: Absolutely. If your egg is rubbery or hard, it was cooked too long.
Q: What herbs would you add to these microwave eggs?
A: Cilantro would be fun, as would chives. Depending on your taste buds, you can add anything that you’d like. Salsa is also another great option!
