  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 everything bagels
  • 1 medium avocado
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, sliced
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange the bacon in a large ovenproof skillet and cook over medium-high heat until crispy, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Remove all but 2 teaspoons bacon drippings from the skillet.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to medium. Cut each bagel in half crosswise. Toast the bottom pieces in the skillet cut-side down until light golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Step 3

Meanwhile, mash together the avocado, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl.

Step 4

Remove the bagel bottoms from the skillet and evenly spread the avocado mash over the toasted sides; set aside. Put the 2 top bagel pieces in the skillet cut-side down. Crack 1 egg into each bagel hole and season with salt and pepper. The whites will run over and under the bagels which is okay-- just make sure the yolks stay in the holes.  

Step 5

Cover the skillet and cook until the whites become crispy and the bottoms of the bagels are toasted, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and continue cooking until the whites are completely set and the yolk is still runny, about 5 minutes.  

Step 6

Meanwhile, layer each avocado bagel bottom with a slice of tomato, some arugula and 2 slices of bacon. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with the egged bagel tops. Cut each sandwich in half.
