Over Easy Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

by Erin

Sleep deprivation is not fun. Other than staying up too late by choice while visiting friends in Columbus, OH for the weekend, I haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in two weeks. I wake up somewhere between 4-5 am and proceed to toss and turn until my alarm goes off. Which sadly is when I start to feel like I could actually go back to sleep haha. Somehow, I am still functional and no I did not drink coffee. Haven’t had a single cup my entire life. My friends think I’m on crack for being so energetic in the morning despite sleepless nights. Today was a bit more difficult, yet somehow I still managed to prepare breakfast for myself beyond simply pouring cereal and milk into a bowl.

I made a breakfast sandwich using an Asiago bagel with some garlic & chive cream cheese, over-easy eggs, slices of Canadian bacon leftover from toppings for my meat lover’s pizza, and Fontina from preparing grilled cheese awhile ago (I love how long cheese can stay). All of these random ingredients I found stashed away in my refrigerator made for one fabulously delicious breakfast for one! And I have a weakness for drippy yolks. I could sop that stuff up with toast all day.


1 Asiago bagel

Cooking spray

2 eggs

1 slice Fontina cheese

2 slices Canadian bacon

1 Tbsp Garlic & Chive cream cheese


  1. Slice bagel in half, toast in toaster oven.
  2. Meanwhile, coat a small pan with cooking spray heated over medium-low heat. Crack eggs and open over the pan. Cook until egg whites are no longer runny. Press spatula against the pan near the edge of the white, then slide spatula quickly under the yolk. In one swift move, flip the egg over gently by tipping the spatula sideways. Repeat for second egg.
  3. While you allow the eggs to cook another minute, place the Fontina cheese on the cut side of the top bagel slice still toasting in the toaster oven. Allow to melt.
  4. Assemble your sandwich: Spread the cream cheese on the bottom bagel slice followed by two slices of Canadian bacon. Firmly slide spatula under the eggs, take out of the pan and place it on top of the Canadian bacon. Place top bagel slice with melted Fontina cheese onto the completed sandwich, and devour!

I’m not a runny yoke girl, but it definitely looks like a perfect way to start the morning!
