Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bagel Sandwich Ingredients

  • Sausages – Use whatever favorite breakfast sausage you like!
  • Olive Oil – You’ll need a little bit of oil to brown the sausages and sauté the veggies.
  • Veggies –A simple combination of red pepper, green pepper, and onion is a great option. Feel free to add other veggies, too if you like!
  • Eggs –You can scramble the egg with the veggies to create an all-in-one scramble or cook the egg separately.
  • Cheese – Use your favorite melty cheese! Try cheddar, Swiss, pepper jack, Havarti, provolone, American, gouda, you name it.
  • Bagels – You can use whatever bagel you like best!

How to Make A Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bagel Sandwich

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet, slice the sausage into ¼”-thick pieces, and cook until brown on both sides. Set aside and wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.
  • Add oil to the same skillet, then add in the veggies and cook until tender.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Add to the skillet and scramble. Remove from heat.
  • Place the bagel bottoms on sheets of aluminum foil. Top with scrambled eggs and veggies, then sausage and cheese.
  • Top with the other half of the bagel, wrap in foil, then place in the toaster oven and toast until the bagel is softened and the cheese melts.

Breakfast is served.

Girl Carnivore EXPERT RECIPE TIPS

  • Use medium heat when cooking the sausage patty to ensure it is evenly cooked and doesn’t burn.
  • For a cheese-lovers dream, use a slice of cheese in your egg mixture and a slice on top of the sausage patty.
  • Mix your egg mixture in a small bowl to ensure it’s well-blended before cooking if you’re making scrambled eggs.
  • If you’re using leftover cooked egg, heat it up in the microwave for a few seconds before assembling your sandwich.
  • Pre-toast the bagel until golden brown for a crunchier sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich!

Leftovers & Reheating

Store your leftover egg mixture in an airtight container or plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat:

  1. ​Turn the oven on low and heat the sandwich, tightly wrapped in foil, until warm.
  2. Place sandwich in a toaster oven and turn on the “toast” option.
  3. Reheat sandwich in the microwave until warm. (Our least favorite option as the bread can get tough and chewy in the micro).

What to Serve With A Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bagel Sandwich

  • Use bacon. Looking for a little extra crunch? Try adding crispy bacon! Who doesn’t love extra meat for breakfast?
  • Sausage patties also work (go full on Jimmie Dean)
  • Add avocado. Sliced avocado is a delicious addition to this breakfast sandwich.
  • Use other veggies. You can easily cook more veggies with the onion and pepper to bulk it up even more. I love adding mushrooms, scallions, or spinach.
  • Spice it up. Love a kick of heat? Drizzle the bagels with hot sauce or Sriracha, or add some black pepper!
  • Skip the bagel and dive into this amazing Cheesy Baked Egg Toast instead! You can also use toasted English muffins or serve on a Kaiser roll or a buttermilk biscuit if you prefer!

Recipe FAQs

Should I use a fried egg or make scrambled eggs for this recipe?

You can make whatever kind of eggs you like! You can also use egg whites depending on your calorie needs! Just be warned, with a great fried egg, you have the runny yolk, so pack extra napkins.

What type of cheese works best for this recipe?

You can use cheddar cheese, American cheese, provolone cheese, etc.! Make sure it’s a good melting cheese for the best results. 

CAN THESE BREAKFAST BAGELS BE PREPPED AHEAD OF TIME?

Honestly, I don’t recommend it. Once the sandwiches are assembled, they are best right away! However, if you want to get ahead a little bit, you cook the veggie and egg scramble, fry up the sausage, and store them separately in the fridge or freezer. They will last for up to 5 days.
Then, when you’re ready to enjoy, simply assemble the sandwiches and toast wrapped in foil in a preheated oven, air fryer, or toaster oven. Keep in mind, they will take a little bit longer to cook through since the scramble and sausage will be cold.

  1. And now I want these for lunch. I so rarely make myself breakfast for actual breakfast. Dinner or brunch on the weekends yes but rarely on the weekdays.

  2. Savory breakfast for the win. Seriously. And I don’t even have to put on pants for this one. yessssss

  3. Geez, we’re so alike. I am not a fan of sweet breakfasts, and definitely not early ones. This, however, this I embrace with my entire girl carnivore heart. It looks amazing.

  4. All I know right now is that you’re making my morning coffee and apple REALLY sad. /sighs

    1. I looked at a banana yesterday and thought of you… Then I ate a cookie and realized fruit and coffee just weren’t for me (though I really really wish they could be. 10 times more healthy)
