Quick Bagel & Egg Breakfast

My husband is a protein guy. He doesn't do waffles, pancakes or sweet treats for breakfast. As much as this pains me since I love love love sugar and bread, I've found some good compromises. Bagel Thins help my carb fix and filling it with eggs and ham makes him happy. It also helps that I can make it in 15 minutes I have to prepare breakfast before leaving for work.

How good does this look?

This is 3 eggs with a splash of milk scrambled, Natural Choice deli ham (I only buy nitrate free), chives, salt and pepper. I spread the bagels with a little cream cheese to hold it all together. 

  And Cafe Escapes is a little sweet fix for me in the morning. I'd been tweeting with them and they offered to send me a sample. Thank you! The Cafe Mocha is my favorite flavor but the Dark Chocolate is a close second. I don't have the machine you would normally use for these but I've got plenty of hot water and it works just fine to add it to a cup, stir and enjoy.

What kind of breakfast do you prefer?


  1. It looks delicious. Great job! I can't wait till Cinco De Mayo!!

  2. Now this is my kind of breakfast. What a great way to start the day. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  3. I looove those bagel thins. As much as I like sweets, I wake up HUNGRY and need something with protein (rather than lots of sugar) to sustain me. I eat a lot of egg sandwiches on bagel thins or english muffins!
