Eggs in a Bagel Hole

Bagels just got better! Fill the bagel hole with eggs and beef bacon and you get the most delicious breakfast in a breeze. Crispy cheese and rich garlic herb butter flavor in every bite. There’s no better way to start the day!

The Bagels

If you loved the previous Eggs in a Boat recipe which was made using baguettes, wait until you try it with bagels! The hole in the bagel makes it the perfect bread of choice for this recipe. It’s the most delicious breakfast or brunch to make that comes together in a pinch and is so easy to switch up.

My favorite bagels to use for this are Thomas Everything Bagels but you can use any brand or flavor you like. You can also make bagels from scratch and use that instead!

The Garlic and Herb Butter

The first step is to prepare the garlic butter which will be used at the end to toss the fries in before serving. Here’s everything you will need:

  • unsalted butter, melted
  • garlic cloves, finely minced
  • parsley, finely chopped
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • oregano
  • parmesan, grated

Just add everything to a small bowl, mix it together, and it’s ready to go! Feel free to go stronger on the garlic if you can’t get enough.

Assembling & Baking

HERE IS HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Separate the bagels into halves and poke a larger hole out of the bagel in the middle.
  2. Brush the bottom of each bagel half with the garlic and herb butter.
  3. Add shredded cheddar cheese under each bagel and/or on top. I like to add cheese on top of the bottom half bagels and then cheese underneath the top half bagel with the everything bagel seasoning.
  1. Cut raw beef bacon strips in half and lay them in the center so the hole is completely covered. Add a pinch of brown sugar to the bacon.
  2. Crack an egg in the center. Try to use smaller eggs rather than large ones just so it all fits inside the hole.
  3. Pop in the oven to bake to desired doneness depending on if you like the yolk runny, jammy, or hard.

Variations to Try

  • Switch out the everything bagel for a plain bagel, sesame, onion, blueberry, cinnamon raisin, wheat, or anything you fancy.
  • Use turkey bacon instead of beef bacon or sliced turkey deli meat.
  • Add avocado when it comes out of the oven on top!
  • Add jalapeños to make it a cheddar jalapeno bagel in a hole.

I like the recipe, but I think it’s better to turn the bagel over to cook it. The cheese just gets stuck to the bottom…

Very delicious! We let them in the oven a bit too long so they were very crunchy but still very tasty!

Made these this morning and these were so good! I omitted the garlic butter sauce because I was lazy to make them. :). The oven temperature and time cooked everything perfectly! Jammy, yummy eggs with salty bacon on top of a crispy bagel. I used jalapeño bagels and can’t wait to try other bagels. My eggs did run off a bit but that’s ok because it lifted so easily off the parchment paper. Would definitely make these again!

These were so filling and flavourful! You’re absoltuely right: the best way to start the day! They take so little time but keep me filled all morning and honestly I go back to this recipe time and time again already!

I love the way she cooks and makes it look so easy and tasty yet good for you I luv all you videos Thank you
