I was so excited to try the viral egg in a hole bagel! I've seen so many different variations of this, but wanted to keep it simple. I went with whatever I had in my fridge! You can use any type of bagel you'd like, but I recommend an everything bagel. Feel free to add your own seasoning, sauces and spices. This is such an easy, tasty recipe that it will quickly become your go-to I'm sure!
These breakfast bagels definitely live up to the hype. After making my own version, I can see why they're trending. You can make these with any ingredients you have on hand and cook them in an air fryer or in an oven.
I like to keep my toppings simple: cheese, cheese and more cheese! But you can add veggies or cooked meats as well. The timing will depend on your oven or air fryer, so start with 8 minutes at 365ºF and keep an eye on the bagel as it cooks. You’ll know it’s ready when the egg has set and the whites are no longer gooey. I left mine in for 11 minutes because I don't like jiggly egg whites, but then your yolk will also solidify a bit. Ten minutes seems to work best. Give my recipe a try, you will love it!
1 everything bagel, sliced in half
Salt & pepper
Mozzarella cheese blend (or any cheese of your choice)
Cut your bagel in half.
Place the bagel soft side down in the air fryer basket (I line mine with an air fryer parchment paper liner- such an easier cleanup).
Crack one egg in the centre of the bagel hole, season with salt & pepper and top with cheese.
Air fry (or bake) at 185ºC/365ºF until the egg has set. Keep an eye on it every few minutes. Mine took about 10 minutes.
