Bagel Brunch | Cream Cheese, Egg & Spinach

Bagels are definitely one of my favourite ways to enjoy bread! I can’t wait to go back to New York this year to enjoy a true New York bagel! Recently I’ve been enjoying Dr Zaks High Protein Bagels* as they are incredibly filling! I can eat them for a late brunch and not have to worry about food until dinner time – they are that filling! I’ve been munching on the multigrain ones but they also do a sweet version in cinnamon. My struggle with bagels is that sometimes I’m not as adventurous with the toppings as I should be – I’m such a sucker for almond butter!

However the other weekend I put the almond butter back in the cupboard and rummaged around in my fridge to see what I could come up with to make my bagel more exciting! On a Saturday morning I usually have the weeks leftovers in the fridge so it can be a bit hit and miss, but this week I came up with a winner! I suppose its a vegetarian version of a Club Sandwich, so you could chuck in a bit of bacon or chicken it you have it.

Grab your cream cheese, I’ve been using Philadelphia in the little individual pots so it lasts longer – bonus – add a generous layer to the bottom bagel. Next add a little spinach for a good source of protein. Top with a juicy slice of beef tomato then a runny fried egg!

It’s a simple combination but it worked very well and hit the spot for me, so I thought I would share it for a little bagel topping inspiration if you ever need it!

What’s your favourite bagel topping? Do you like to be adventurous or do you stick with almond butter.

  1. I know it’s probably off but I’ve never thought of putting an egg in the bagel, doesn’t the yolk squirt out the middle?! Haha, sounds yummy though! My fav is avocado!

    1. Haha, I only eat it with a knife and fork for this exact reason! I’m with you with the avocado! 🙂
