You probably don’t need a recipe to figure out how to combine these ingredients for breakfast…but here’s what we did – and we thought it was awesome.
This “recipe” makes 2 breakfast bagels.
- 3 strips bacon
- 2 eggs
- about 6 slices of Jarlsberg cheese
- 2 bagels
FYI – It helps to have a toaster oven – we recently bought a toaster oven, not to be confused with a toaster, and are supremely happy about it.
Toast both sides of the bagels in the toaster oven. Set aside.
In a non-stick skillet, cook the bacon. Place the cooked bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Drain about 1/2 of the bacon drippings from the pan (we usually treat the Pup and pour this on his food, but you can just discard it). In the remaining bacon drippings, fry 2 eggs.
Break the bacon so it will fit on the bagels. Place the bacon directly on 1/2 of each bagel, and cover with strips of the cheese. Re-toast the bagels this way, so that the cheese melts and “traps” the bacon strips – no one likes it when bacon falls out mid-bite.
Place the fried eggs on top of the cheese, and top with the other 1/2 of each bagel.
Gardner put mayonnaise and hot sauce on his bagel. I left mine alone…and found it to be absolutely perfect. Suit yourself.
