Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich + What I Ate Wednesday

Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

While this sassy sandwich is almost too easy to be considered a recipe, it’s far too good to keep to myself! Featuring Cabot’s uber flavorful everything bagel cheddar cheese and two perfectly fried drippy eggs, this breakfast bagel will have you planning your day around breakfast, brunch, and brinner!

Bah-ring it!

Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich




Yield 1


  • 1 everything bagel or bagel-thin
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 slice of your favorite deli cheese
  • 1-2 oz freshly grated Cabot Everything Bagel Cheese
  • a handful of fresh spinach
  • butter for grilling the sandwich, to taste [optional]


  1. Slice bagel in half and set aside.
  2. Next begin cooking bacon via your favorite method [I bake mine on parchment paper but you could also fry it up on a skillet if you prefer]
  3. While the bacon cooks, fry your eggs: Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium heat and crack your eggs into the pan, separate from one another. Cook for a few minutes until your idea of drippy egg perfection is reached. Covering the pan halfway through cooking [after about a minute or two] helps cook the top of the egg and is my go-to technique for a perfect fried egg!
  4. Next butter each side of your bagel [optional] and top with cheese, eggs, bacon, and spinach. Grill it up on a skillet or press into your favorite panini press for a melty breakfast grilled cheese that will rock your morning! Alternatively you can simply toast your bagel and pile it high with the ingredients sandwich-style.
  5. There's no wrong way to make an egg sammie; just make one! This bad boy is straight up delicious!


Double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients depending on how many sandwiches you need. No need to measure, just use this as meal-spiration and have fun with breakfast!

The above sandwich [huzzah!!!!!] plus some sliced strawberries and a giant mug-o-coffee. I made this beast of a brekkie with recipe development in mind and was SO glad I did! Sometimes the blog is the only push I need to make myself a proper breakfast in the morning. Though this trick tends to only work a few times a month, since other mornings are lazy/rushed and typically consist of a few scrambled eggs, cereal, or the occasional bakery bagel. I need to get back on the oatmeal train too. It’s been far too long! Ooh! And grits too. And biscuits. And… I like food. A lot.


I was still pretty stuffed from breakfast, and kind of crazed from chasing the chickpea around all day so lunch consisted of a snack plate while photo editing during chicken little’s nap.

Cucumber, Cracker, and Cheese Snack Plate

It wasn’t much but after a big breakfast it was just what I needed.

Chocolate Mug with Tea

Green Tea with Ginger!

Parmesan Pesto Pasta

Green Beans with Almonds


Parmesan Pesto Pasta with Parsley. So much alliteration. So much yum. This is my go-to dinner when things are crazy. Depending on the contents of my fridge or freezer, sometimes this dish will be loaded with fresh veggies and shrimp [a la this super popular recipe] and other times it’ll take a more simplistic route. I am still kicking myself for forgetting that I had spinach in the fridge and eating my pesto pasta plain. I also whipped out a box of green beans with almonds from the freezer and had that alongside my pasta. Yum!

Dessert was the most amazing double-chocolate cookie! I’m still in recipe development mode to get them a bit thicker/fluffier and somehow take decent photos of the batch. They taste perfect, now I just need them to look the part! Recipe coming soon!

Andrea @ The Pineapple Cake

I’m keeping this post far away from Ben tonight (as he is sitting next to me) because that bagel sandwich is looking so yummy and I know he’ll have me rush to the kitchen to whip one up!
I must ask where did you find those beautiful white plates? I love the detail on those.
Can’t wait for the cookie recipe, yum!!

Emily @ Life on Food

Once again I am drooling over your breakfast. I might just need to eat breakfast 3 times a day.

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

I need a moment alone after seeing that sammich.


Looks terrific! The breakfast sandwich looks like something I want right this instant:) I posted my WIAW for today in Laura’s blog and I mentioned you! I now have newborn twins, but I went into a freezing frenzy during my nesting insanity and froze lots of your tortilla soup. It has saved us! Happy Wednesday:-)


    Did my comment go through? They’re so stinking cute I can’t handle it! Congrats mama!!!!! <3 They're perfection and I'm so glad the soup helped! It's such perfect comfort food for busy times and hungry bellies! <3

Heather @ Life In Leggings

OHHHHH man that breakfast sandwich looks AMAZING! Seriously, stop. I need it. I wouldn’t mind taking a couple forkfuls of that pesto pasta, either. So much yum is right!

Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl

I love Cabot cheddar, I’ve been to the factory in Vermont and it is dangerous for Cheddar lovers…


Wow this looks so good!!!

Julianna @ Julianna Bananna

ummmm, can i come over for breakfast?! that sandwich looks amazing!


    Come on over!


Umm….I want that sandwich. Like a lot. Mostly so I can continue to blimp out, because that’s what my new job is doing to me. But hey. What a way to go. So, come over, make me this sandwich and I’ll entertain the chickpea. K. See you soon. Coffee pot is on. 😉


    I had a dream you and the hubs and stephie came to visit me. Make that real. I’ll feed you all!

Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious

I can’t wait to see the double chocolate cookie!


You know what I love about your food? IT looks healthy and super tasty. You enjoy what people would term comfort food, but the twists you put on it look both appealing and fresh and yummy. That sandwich looks yummy. And I’m learning from observing your food photography too!

Arman @ thebigmansworld

This is what they call a breakfast that sticks to your ribs! Full of healthy fats and TWO cheeses. Damn. Lucky I have dunkins lol.

Kristen @ A Mind Full Mom

I wish I was eating that right now–looks so good!

Sam @ PancakeWarriors

This is how you start the day!! YUM!!


Good god in heaven, that breakfast sandwich. I’m literally drooling. You have a way with eggs on bread which makes me weak in the knees.

Best. Sandwich. Ever.

BTW, I have totally been on an egg sandwich kick this week…i think i’ve eaten one 3 out of the last 4 days..
Everything bagels are the best, truly, but i usually use Ezekiel bread (soaks up the yolk, and a close 2nd to everything bagels), eggs (seasoned with rosemary and thyme), american cheese, and yellow mustard. My american cheese + yellow mustard mixture makes it trashy,but good. :).


Wow,really looks good.This will be a late saturday morning breakfast,maybe a late lunch too.Thanks !
