What are quiche stuffed bagels?

Aside from being fun to make, and a filling and delicious start to the day, what exactly are quiche stuffed bagels? Is there a quiche inside?

Not exactly! Inside a hollowed-out bagel, egg mixed with cream and salt, and topped with cheese and bacon is baked until it is creamy and set, and the cheese has melted. The bagel acts like the crust of a quiche, holding the filling in place. Then, you create a sandwich, garnishing it with spinach, avocado, and some spicy guacamole, then top it with the other half of the bagel. Now, you have a big, full sandwich ready to devour!

How to make quiche stuffed bagels?

My recipe for quiche stuffed bagels is so easy, and you’ll be eating one for breakfast in no time at all. Here’s my guide on how to make them:

  1. First cook your streaky bacon until crispy.
  2. Slice the top off your bagel - you want the lower half to be deep enough to fill with egg mixture. Using a small sharp knife, carefully cut all the way around the inside edge of the bagel, then again within the outside edge. Pull out the spare bread in the middle, and keep it in the freezer to make breadcrumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, cream and salt, then pour it into the hollowed-out center of the bagel.

Quiche stuffed bagel ingredients

It took me a while to work out the perfect filling for my quiche stuffed bagels – I wanted a perfect balance of salty and indulgent, with fresh and healthy. This way we know we are treating ourselves without feeling too guilty!

I think I got that balance just right. You will need:

Bagels: Choose your favorite brand of bagels. My favorite bagels have a lovely crunchy surface of seeds, and more scattered throughout the bread for extra crunch. Some people are concerned about the wasted bread when you hollow-out the centers, but I just freeze mine for when I need breadcrumbs.

Eggs: The star of the show! You will need one per person.

Cream: To enrich the eggs, and to set them like silk.

Salt and Pepper: Always season your egg mixture, you want to be able to taste it among all the other flavors in the sandwich.

Streaky bacon: Streaky bacon is best because it cooks until really crispy, almost brittle, and can break up easily into shards.

Cheddar cheese: Choose a sharp cheddar with full flavor so every mouthful tastes wonderfully cheesy!

Fresh spinach: Full of immune-boosting minerals, spinach is a superfood and has a satisfying crunch, contrasting the quiche stuffed bagel’s soft texture.

Avocado: A big breakfast sandwich is never complete without avocado. Slice into wedges and sprinkle with a little salt and lemon juice to bring out its creamy flavor.

Homemade guacamole: In my opinion, the best guacamole includes finely chopped onions and tomatoes for some bite, texture and a little juicy crunch. To make homemade guacamole simply:

1. Slice a ripe avocado in half, pop out the stone. Slice the avocado into squares, then slide a big spoon under the skin and ease the flesh out into a bowl.

2. Add salt, pepper, freshly squeezed lime juice and a pinch of chili flakes. Mash them all together.

3. Finely chop half an onion and half a tomato, along with a handful of fresh coriander.

4. Mix everything together and serve.
