Special diet :
1 whole wheat bagel
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
1 slice smoked turkey or Black Forest ham
2 tbsp (25 mL) grated light cheddar or smoked mozzarella cheese
Hot red pepper sauce, to taste
- Slice bagel in half crosswise.
- Break egg into a lightly oiled nonstick skillet on medium heat. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until white is opaque but yolk is barely cooked through. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover with a lid, if necessary, while cooking so that egg white firms up but yolk stays just a little runny.
- Place egg on bottom half of bagel. Top with smoked turkey and sprinkle with cheese and hot pepper sauce. Top with remaining bagel half.
- Grill sandwich in a sandwich maker, grill pan or nonstick skillet, pressing sandwich flat with a heavy spatula to allow cheese to melt. Turn sandwich and press again. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until cheese melts and sandwich browns.
