25 Yummy Bagel Sandwich Recipes 1

1. Avocado Fried Egg Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

Fried egg sandwiches are a tasty way to start the day, but they can be a bit messy and require a frying pan.

This avocado fried egg bagel is a healthier alternative that’s still just as delicious.

It has all of your favorite fried egg combinations, including cheddar cheese, herbs, and chives.

You can add any toppings you like most, such as tomatoes or olives.

Although this recipe makes an individual breakfast sandwich, it’s also great for lunch or dinner because it’s so filling.

2. Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

I’m all for a bagel, but when I want something hearty and filling, this is the recipe for me.

The toasted bagels are filled with scrambled eggs and bacon, cheese, and chives.

Instead of butter or mayo, you’ll make your own hummus sauce that’s creamy and flavorful.

This is the kind of sandwich you’ll want to eat with a spoon.

It’s so good, it’s hard to believe it only takes 15 minutes to whip up!

3. Pear Apple Cheddar Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese Bagel Sandwich

If you’re looking for something a little lighter and to-go, this grilled cheese bagel is just the ticket.

It’s fluffy and cheesy with a hint of sweetness from the caramelized onions.

It’s also super hearty but not too heavy or filling.

The only thing missing is some cream cheese on the inside, so I think it might be better as an appetizer.

4. Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

This smoked salmon breakfast bagel sandwich is a fantastic way to start your day.

It’s packed with all of the best flavors, and it’s easy enough that even kids can make it.

Believe it or not, you can have these for breakfast!

You’ll love how much flavor there is in every bite.

It might just be the best thing on this list.

5. Crispy Parmesan And Pesto Egg In A Bagel

If you’re looking for something quick and easy to whip up, it doesn’t get much fresher than this egg in a bagel.

It takes only 5 minutes to make and requires just one when cooked.

The end result is a crisp egg that has a lovely crunchy crust on top.

The ingredients are simple and the result is amazing.

It’s like getting your favorite fried eggs served in a bagel!

6. New York-Style Bacon Egg And Cheese

This is the tall order in your kitchen because you’ll go to town with this New York-style sandwich.

It’s savory, cheesy, and packed with bacon! Plus, it features just as many toppings as other sandwiches on this list.

I like to keep some blood sausage and caramelized onions for extra flavor.

7. Veggie And Cream Cheese Turkey Bagel Sandwich

This sandwich is a yummy treat for your tastebuds.

You’ll love the combination of savory and sweet that comes together with cream cheese.

There are also veggies on the bagel, like spinach and cherry tomatoes.

This makes for an extra boost of nutrients, and it’s delicious.

8. Eggs Benedict Bagel Sandwich

When I see eggs Benedict, my mind immediately goes to a grilled-cheese egg sandwich.

So, this breakfast biscuit is the perfect addition.

I like mine with plenty of hollandaise sauce and a poached egg on top.

But the original recipe calls for Hollandaise Sauce and slices of ham.

If you want an even more hearty start to your day, try adding some leftover roast chicken or duck!

9. Romesco Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

I’m not sure there is a better way to start the day than with a Romesco breakfast bagel sandwich.

The toast is golden brown and crispy on the outside, which makes it perfect for dipping in the Romescio sauce.

And I think that’s just what it needs.

If you haven’t tried it yet, make sure you give this recipe a try!

Also, if you don’t have time to make Romesco sauce from scratch, this recipe makes an excellent substitute.

Just be sure to use good quality canned tomatoes and some lemon juice!

10. Lox Bagel With Lemon Herby

The next time you are craving a sweet and salty treat, give this recipe a try.

It’s like an Israeli pita pocket but with lox instead.

It’s so good that it can even easily be eaten on its own.

This is such a great place to start if you want to make your own lox!

You can add fresh herbs to the meat, or even use leftover smoked salmon for extra flavor.

Of course, no lunch could be complete without pickle chips.

This recipe calls for smoked salmon and cream cheese, but you could always use whatever cream cheese you have on hand.


11. Sesame Bagel Sandwiches with Prosciutto, Arugula, Apple and Honey Cream Cheese

What’s better than a bagel?

A bagel with prosciutto, arugula, and apple.

It’s like a dreamy breakfast that you can make in just 20 minutes!

The best part?

It’s made using only five ingredients.

No bread maker required!

12. Pesto & Egg Bagel Sandwich

Once you know how to make pesto in a blender, you’re all set.

Put it on everything and never worry about making it again.

This recipe is perfect for a quick lunch or brunch.

And if you’re feeling lazy, just use pre-made bagels!

Just keep in mind that the bagel needs to be sliced before adding any ingredients.

And when using whole wheat bagels, please note that they won’t hold together as well as their white counterparts.

13. Avocado Turkey Bagel Sandwich

This sandwich is a genius way to use up leftover turkey.

Even if it’s not Thanksgiving, I always have this in my weekly lunch rotation.

It has the perfect balance of flavors and textures with juicy turkey, fresh veggies, and creamy avocado spread.

The only thing I would add would be some chopped onion for that extra boost of flavor!

This green goddess sandwich is a classic breakfast treat.

If you’ve never tried it before, then I highly recommend giving it a shot.

It’s a combination of bacon, eggs, and cheese.

It’s perfect for people who aren’t into eating huge meals for breakfast.

Caprese is the quintessential Italian summer salad.

It’s the perfect combination of tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and balsamic vinegar.

And now you can make it in your own kitchen with a handful of pantry staples.

This recipe uses bagels because they’re convenient and easy to handle.

But if you have a mandolin or vegetable peeler, feel free to use that instead.

Either way, this Caprese bagel recipe will be sure to satisfy any craving for a fresh, flavorful bite!

18. Turkey Apple Sandwich

This sandwich is best on its own, but I love it as a side with my mashed potatoes and gravy!

You can use whatever kind of bread you like for this, but I find it works best with a baguette.

If you have time, toast the bread first so that it gets nice and toasty.

Then just add the turkey slices and apple slices into the buttery bread when you’re ready to eat.

To make it a little more festive, try adding some roasted pears or onions to the middle of your sandwich.

19. Italian Salami Bagel Sandwich

I love the simplicity of this sandwich.

You’ll just need salami, cheese, and bread for it.

You could also use prosciutto or even smoked to make this extra savory.

For something a little sweeter, try adding some sliced fruits like apples or cherries.

Or for something extra filling, throw in some sliced avocados or olives!

Just toss all the ingredients into a food processor and let it do its thing.

21. Ham, Egg & Cheese Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

If you want something a little more filling than just ham and cheese, try this recipe for ham, egg, and cheese bagel breakfast sandwiches.

The eggs add a boost of protein to the sandwich that’ll keep you full longer.

As for the optional fried onions on top, they add another layer of crunchy goodness that pairs perfectly with the softness of the bagel.

This sandwich will keep you happy until lunchtime!
