Noelle Eats | My Favorite Breakfast Sandwich Ever

The best breakfast sandwich

I think it’s acceptable to say that all diets and nutritional guides have been thrown out the window during the entirety of our quarantine thus far. I know most wellness blogs or articles recommend exercising and cooking healthy foods while we have the available “free time,” but I find eating my feelings is much more satisfying. Last weekend, I made my favorite breakfast sandwich that is both insanely delicious and terrible for me (but who cares! We’re in a pandemic!) and I was the happiest I’ve been in a while as I ate it. I’ve made this breakfast sandwich every once in a while since high school when I truly want to treat myself to something found at a breakfast diner or a deli. I love love love a good bacon, egg, and cheese in NYC, and this is my own spin on the breakfast sandwich (using a much lower quality bagel obviously). Let’s just not calculate the calories for this one, okay?


  • 1 bagel
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese (or whatever cheese you prefer)
  • 2 strips thick cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons pesto
  • seasonings of choice (I used garlic salt and pepper in my eggs)


  1. Smear the pesto all over one half of the bagel and top with the cheese slices.
  2. Pop both bagel halves into the toaster, but don’t start toasting yet.
  3. Crack eggs into a bowl, sprinkle seasonings on top, and whisk until mostly combined.
  4. Split two slices of bacon in half and cook until almost done, before setting aside to drain on a paper towel (don’t cook all the way because bacon will continue cooking as it cools).
  5. Toast bagel based on toaster settings.
  6. Cook eggs in bacon grease (bad for you, but also so good) until soft scrambled.
  7. Once bagel is crispy and cheese is melted, remove from toaster oven.
  8. Place bacon slices on non-pesto and cheese-covered bagel half and top with scrambled eggs.
  9. Enjoy!
