Breakfast Burgers

By Wendy Paul


  • 6- 1/3 lb. beef hamburger patties, cooked to your liking
  • 6- Bagel Thins, Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • 1 avocado mashed
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked
  • 6 eggs, sunny side up
  • Arugula and spinach mix
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste and 1 tsp. fresh basil paste or tomato pesto
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • Bonus: bacon jam


In a small skillet over medium heat, with a little butter, cook your sunny side up egg, or fried egg to your liking.

Assemble your breakfast burger.

Open your skinny everything bagel, you can toast it if you like. I like my bagels toasted.

Spread ½ the bagel with mashed avocado. Sprinkle with some kosher salt. In a small bowl, combine the soft cream cheese, tomato paste, fresh basil paste, or tomato pesto and milk. Spread the other ½ bagel thin.

Layer your toasted bagels with your burger, bacon, egg, and a small handful of arugula and spinach. Top with the other ½ of toasted bagel. If you really want to be over-the-top, add some bacon jam on top of the cream cheese spread. Serve warm.

Serve with a side of fruit or potato hash.
