Thick cut applewood smoked bacon, peppery arugula, a slice of tomato, creamy avocado, and a schmear of herby cream cheese on an everything bagel and topped with a perfectly cooked fried egg. This bagel sandwich makes for the most delicious breakfast or lunch to enjoy any day of the week.




  1. Bagel: Turn the oven to high broil. Place the bagel on a cookie sheet, insides facing upward. Broil until nice and toasted; set aside. (Be sure to watch it consistently or it will burn).
  2. Bacon: During this time, cook the bacon. For convenience, you can use the microwave or cook it on the stovetop. Whichever you prefer is fine.
  3. Egg: Heat the avocado oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the egg and season with salt and pepper. Fry it for about 2 minutes on medium-high heat, flip, turn heat to low and cook an additional minute. This produces a perfect “over-medium” egg with just a bit of run.  
  4. Assemble: Smear each bagel piece with one tablespoon of the chive cream cheese. To the bottom slice add arugula, tomato, avocado and bacon. Top with the fried egg and other bagel slice. 
  5. Serve: Enjoy right away with your favorite juice or coffee.


  • Bagel: Remove some of the inner breading so it’s not so “bready”. (You just want a good bread to filling ratio). You can either remove it by pulling out some of the middle pieces with your fingers, or just trim off a bit from each side with a knife. 
  • Broil: I toast my bagel in the oven on high broil, because it’s much easier that way. Plus, these big bagels don’t really fit well in a toaster. You just have to watch it though. It crisps up fast.
  • Egg: You can make this sandwich with a fried, scrambled or poached egg. All options work!
