Once you realize how basic (and by that we mean simple, not you know, basic) this breakfast sandwich recipe is, you'll probably make and/or consume some form of this sammie on the regular. No insane culinary skills are needed to toast a bagel, cook sausage links, fry an egg, slice a few vegetables, and assemble a sandwich. So why make it? For the hashtag #blesst, of course—short for bagel, lettuce, egg, sausage, Swiss, and tomato, in case you didn’t catch it earlier. In an age when people question, “If I don’t Instagram it, did it really happen?” and #yolkporn and #bec sandwiches flood your feed, here’s your chance to to shine with an easy breakfast sandwich recipe.

#B.L.E.S.S.T Breakfast Sandwich

  • Yields: 1 sandwich 
  • Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Halve the sausage links and cook until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and set aside.

  2. Crack your egg into the pan, season with salt and pepper, and fry in the sausage fat. If there is not enough fat in the pan, just add some more oil before frying the egg. When the egg is cooked to your liking, remove and set aside.

  3. Halve and toast your bagel. Pile on the lettuce, fried egg, sausage and tomato for a truly #blesst start to your day.
