Bacon, Egg, and Cheese: New York Deli Style

with one comment

For those of you in NYC, or for those of you who live near a legitimate bagel shop (no, CTB does not count), consider treating yourself to a delicious bacon, egg, and cheese this weekend.  I have been craving one since my friend Jane made the most memorable breakfast last summer.  A plain bagel, good cheddar cheese, whiskey on the rocks, a coors light, sitting poolside with best friends.   You can make your own or get one from the closest best deli.  Until I reach the home front this June, eat them.  For me.

  • 1 everything bagel or other bagel of choice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter plus more for buttering bagel
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 thin slice cheese such as American or cheddar
  • 2 to 3 slices cooked bacon
  • Hot sauce and/or ketchup for serving


  1. Slice bagel in half. Butter cut sides of each half and toast in a toaster oven or on a griddle (if using a pop-up toaster, butter halves after they are toasted).
  2. Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet. Add butter to skillet. Carefully crack both eggs into skillet. When whites begin to set, immediately puncture yolks.
  3. Top one egg with cheese and bacon. Place remaining egg, yolk-side down on top of bacon (like an egg-on-egg sandwich). Transfer eggs onto one toasted half of the bagel; top with remaining bagel half and lightly press together. Serve immediately with hot sauce or ketchup, or wrap halfway in parchment paper or aluminum foil for a portable breakfast.
