Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich, New York City Deli-Style


This tasty breakfast sandwich, from Lucinda Scala Quinn's "Mad Hungry" cookbook, is sure to become a new family favorite.

  • Yield: Makes 1

Source: The Martha Stewart Show


  • 1 everything bagel, or other bagel of choice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more for buttering bagel
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 thin slice cheese, such as American or cheddar
  • 2 to 3 slices cooked bacon
  • Hot sauce and/or ketchup, for serving


  1. Slice bagel in half. Butter cut sides of each half and toast in a toaster oven or on a griddle (if using a pop-up toaster, butter halves after they are toasted).

  2. Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet. Add butter to skillet. Carefully crack both eggs into skillet. When whites begin to set, immediately puncture yolks.

  3. Top one egg with cheese and bacon. Place remaining egg, yolk-side down on top of bacon (like an egg-on-egg sandwich). Transfer eggs onto one toasted half of the bagel; top with remaining bagel half and lightly press together. Serve immediately with hot sauce or ketchup, or wrap halfway in parchment paper or aluminum foil for a portable breakfast.

    This is a delicious and filling breakfast. I used to make it for my kids to eat on their way to school. Now we just enjoy at home. Easy to make...everyone loves it!

    My grandson loved this repeat show, he is 7, and determined to cook like Martha and Lucinda. He is a bacon and egg boy!

    In NY we call this the "Fat Girl Special". Not served on a bagel but a kaiser roll, along with a smear of butter on the top inside of the roll. Yumm!

    I think this is the wrong recipe for this one... I clikced on the Pantry Salad which I thought was the sallad made with bacon and collard.
