Omelet Bagel Sandwich the Best Lazy Day Brunch

Just imagine a hot, cheesy, veggie packed slice of omelette, topped with a sizzling slab of pork sausage, and all hugged by a toasted asiago bagel.  Drooling right? Because you should be. Ever have a day when you simply don’t want to go anywhere at all? Where the fabric of your PJs is feeling that perfect level of softness and the couch cushions are begging you not to move? Well that has been our weekend, and for good reason actually, since its been snowing for two days in Michigan. Yup. Rain, snow, sleet, and ice; we’ve had the whole gamete. Welcome to Mid Mitten life.

Anyway crappy weather aside, we were not feeling adventures of any sort so the hubs and I decided to make a trip to the grocery store and then bunker down for the weekend.  And because shared breakfasts are a rarity in our house (he coaches three sports, and has lots of weekend commitments) we decided to be a little indulgent and craft the ultimate lazy day brunch: The Omelet Bagel Sandwich.  I can take no credit for it, it was the creation of my husband.

The Omelet Bagel Sandwich is literally the best breakfast sandwich I have ever had.

It all comes together so beautifully and easily you will wonder how you have been doing breakfast wrong for so long.  I won’t try to pretend that this is a health food, or that there aren’t more well rounded options out there for a morning meal.  But seriously it snowed four inches in my town this weekend and we are well past the first day of spring…. Sometimes you just need to indulge in the good stuff and reward yourself for surviving the beast that is a Midwestern winter.

Don’t live in the Midwest? I’m happy for you. Say hi to the sun for me, and still make this omelette bagel sandwich, you won’t be disappointed.

To start you are going to need to cook the sausage.  We made homemade sausage from ground pork using the same process that was used to make the chorizo found in my loaded chorizo sweet potato fries. In this case the hubby threw in thyme, rosemary, sea salt, pepper, coriander, and oregano.  If you want to skip this step (which honestly will still be yummy but the pork is sooo much fresher tasting when you make your own) simply buy some preseasoned sausage.  Form the sausage into patties and cook over medium heat on the stovetop.

Now it’s time to make a mean omelet

I have a confession to make….I am not that great at making a pretty omelette.  Mine are typically overflowing with stuffing and break when I try to flip them.  My husband however, refers to himself as “The Omelet King.” And for good reason.  The man can make the perfect omelet.  Here are his tips:

  1. Make sure the pan is hot before you pour in the egg mixture, he always greases the pan with a cooking spray.
  2. Tilt the pan back and forth to even out the egg mixture across the entire bottom of the pan.
  3. Allow the egg to cook for a few seconds on medium heat before spreading the vegetable and meat fillings over the entire egg mixture.  The fillings will sink to the egg and become a part of the omelet base.
  4. Trace a spatula around the edge of the omelet to make sure it isn’t sticking to the pan. After about 4 minutes,once the egg begins to be cook completely through, add cheese to one side of the omelet.
  5. Fold one side over.  Let the omelet cook on this side until the cheese inside is melted. Slide omelette out of the pan onto a plate.

If you are looking for fillings suggestions for your omelet bagel sandwich my favorite are sun dried tomatoes, spinach, onion, mushroom, and goat cheese.Slice your bagel and pop it in the toaster.

Now that your omelet has been crafted, sausage cooked, and bagel toasted it’s time to build the sandwich!

To make the omelet and sausage both fit in the bagel we cut the omelet into half or quarters depending on the omelette size.  Spread cream cheese on the bagel half’s, stack on the sausage and egg and there you have it, the omelet bagel sandwich.  Try it out next time you have a lazy morning and let me know what you think!
