A Quick n’ Tasty Open-Face Breakfast Sandwich…in the microwave

by Lauren

My dad’s birthday was on Saturday.

My mom and I set out to make him a nice breakfast but after mulling over fancy recipes for a day or so we opted out.

He just doesn’t appreciate the finer things in food.

You know, like avocados, tomatoes, carrots, cucumber and anything else that happens to come out of the ground.

[Specialty Caprese Sausage from Costco]

A basic breakfast sandwich on the other hand is right up my dad’s alley.

To tell you the truth, a gourmet McDonalds style breakfast sandwich is what I was aiming for.

I couldn’t bare to use anything resembling their sausage patties (if that’s even what they are).

The eggs however, cook up wonderfully in the microwave and create a nice little egg patty that does resemble Mickey D’s a little — only better!

Oh, yep, I said microwave.

Audience: *Shock and Awe!*

Don’t knock it till you try it,  this breakfast sandwich is one of my new favorites.

We have made this one, and this one in the past but this one, right here, is stellar.

Easy, really easy, scrumptious, filling, customizable and nutritious (sorta)!

You can use your favorite sausage, your favorite bagel and your favorite cheese.

You may be wondering why I am even posting this “recipe” if it can be anything you want.

I know, it’s just another breakfast sandwich.

Well, I thought the eggs looked so pretty and turned out so creamy that I just had to tell you about my new favorite egg preparation method: The Microwave.

Plus, the eggs don’t squeeze out of the sandwich in your first bite like your basic scrambled eggs tend to do!


Quick n’ Tasty Open-Face Breakfast Sandwich


1/2 everything bagel

2 eggs, beaten

2 slices of tomato

1 caprese sausage, halved (you can use your favorite flavor)

1 slice of cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon butter

1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper


While your bagel is toasting, whisk eggs until they look creamy. Pour them into a buttered ramekin or shallow bowl that is about the size of your bagel. Place in microwave for 40 seconds. Remove the ramekin and place the slice of cheese on top of the egg.

Put back in the microwave for 30 seconds to finish cooking and to melt the cheese.

In the meantime, place your sausage halves in a pan and cook on both sides until slightly crispy and heated or cooked through. Butter the toasted bagel.

Stack your sandwich with the bagel half, tomato, egg, sausage and any other of your favorite toppings such as onion or avocado.

This is a perfectly quick n’ tasty weekday breakfast!
