Breakfast is not only said to be the most important meal of the day, but I’d argue that it’s totally the best tasting! This ultimate BLT bagel sandwich is taken to the next level by adding a fried egg and special spread you’ll want to eat it morning, noon and night! And? I say go for it!

What Is BLT Bagel?

Honestly, this ultimate BLT bagel sandwich is so simple. You take the classic BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) combo and put it on a bagel instead of bread. Which, if you stopped there would be great tasting. BUT, my Registered Dietitian self knows that wouldn’t keep me full. Why? There isn’t a great source of protein there. And I know protein helps to keep me full. Enter: The fried egg and special spread, 2 minute avocado lime crema!

How To Make BLT Bagel Sandwiches That Keep You Full

Adding a fried egg on top of my BLT bagel sandwich allows me to feel full all morning because it will provide some protein to, like I said, help keep me full.

The fats from the 2 minute avocado lime crema that I HIGHLY recommend adding will also help to keep you full. Cause, let’s be honest. Ain’t NOBODY got time for hanger. Ya feel me?

What Type Of Bagel Should You Use?

You can really use any type of bagel for this sandwich. I like to use my 3 ingredient bagel recipe and make some everything bagels. They’re so easy to make and you can totally make them to fit your tastebuds liking. Personally, the more everything bagel seasoning the better!

What Is The Best Sandwich Lettuce?

The lettuce that you use for this BLT bagel sandwich is KEY. I mean, nothing is worse than biting into a sandwich that you’re expecting to have a nice, crisp crunch from the lettuce and having it be…. soggy, soft, etc. No bueno!

Personally, I am an iceberg kinda gal. I find that it gives it the best crunch. Plus, it’s usually the cheapest option. All about that!
