The kind of breakfast sandwich you eat with a knife and fork. These are one-egg bennies—for a hungrier crowd, use two. The foolproof sauce can be made in the microwave or stovetop. It makes about 1 1⁄2 cups of sauce.
This is a perfectly balanced plate.
4 cups water, divided
1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
6 small bagels, split & toasted
6 slices (1 oz/28 g each) of low-sodium turkey or ham
3 cups baby spinach
Toppings (optional): Lemon Dilly Dip Mix
- Fill six Prep Bowls with 1⁄2 cup cold water each. Crack one egg into each bowl. Partially cover each bowl with lid. If your microwave is equipped with a turntable, place bowls on the edge of the turntable; avoid crowding the middle for even cooking. Microwave until yolk is set to your liking, about 3 min for a medium poach or jammy yolk. Carefully remove bowls from microwave. Using a spoon, place eggs on a plate lined with paper towel or kitchen towel.
- In a 4-Cup Prep Bowl, melt butter, uncovered, on high, 40–60 sec. Whisk in sauce mix and 1 cup water until well combined. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 1⁄2 min, stirring halfway through.
- To serve, thickly slice tomatoes. Place bagels on plates. Divide tomatoes, turkey, and spinach on bottom halves of bagels. Place one egg on each bagel half. Drizzle at least 2 tbsp sauce over top. Sprinkle with pinches dip mix, if desired, and cover with top halves of bagels.
Feeding a crowd? Poach eggs using the Muffin Maker. It’s hands off, the eggs are ready at the same time, and it frees up the stovetop. Preheat oven to 350° F. Place two Muffin Maker trays on two separate Sheet Pans. Fill each well with about 1 tbsp water; crack 1 egg into each well. Bake, rotating halfway through, until whites are set and yolks are still a little jiggly, about 20 min. Remove from oven and let stand 1–2 min to finish setting. Using a spoon, gently loosen eggs and remove from wells, tilting to drain excess water.
