Egg in a Hole (200 Calories!)

Sep 26 2017

Hole-y Breakfast, Batman!

The old-school egg-in-a-hole format is cute, but why cut a hole in a piece of bread when there are skinny bagels in the world? Our spin on the classic morning meal is loaded with bacon and cheese, yet it has only 200 calories!

1/2 of recipe (1 bagel half): 200 calories, 10.5g total fat (4g sat. fat), 505mg sodium, 13.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 1.5g sugars, 14.5g protein

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


1 plain 110-calorie flat bagel (like Thomas' Bagel Thins)

2 large eggs

Dash each salt and black pepper

2 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon

1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

Optional topping: everything bagel seasoning (like the kind by Trader Joe's)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Split bagel into halves, and lightly toast. Lay halves on the baking sheet, cut side up.

Carefully crack an egg into the center of each bagel half. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.)

Top bagel halves with cheese. Bake until egg whites have set and cheese has melted, about 4 minutes.

Chop or crumble bacon, and sprinkle over bagel halves.


Chew on this:

Today, September 26th, is National Pancake Day. No, this isn't the day where IHOP gives out freebies. (That’s in March.) You can do better anyway with these two recipes!
