The McDonald’s breakfast must be one of the best fast food. The variety is immense, but the classic breakfast bagel steals everyone’s heart. There is nothing that screams all-American breakfast as bagels do! 

McDonald’s offers plenty of variety, even in their bagels. They have classics like sausage and egg, steak, egg, cheese, and ham and egg bagel. A favorite breakfast flavor from McDonald’s that has stood out to me is their sausage and egg. 

Although there are plenty of ways to serve bagels, even at McDonald’s, what else can be the epitome of a good breakfast sandwich, if not some fluffy eggs and sausage? That’s precisely what these bagels are loaded with. Sure, they aren’t the fanciest bagels but truly delicious. 

This article has the complete guide of what you need to make this breakfast bagel sandwich. Everything is covered in this step-by-step guide, from the equipment to the instructions and everything in between! Now without any further ado, let us explore this recipe! 

What Equipment Will You Need To Make McDonald’s Breakfast Bagel?

  • Bowls – A few medium-sized bowls will work fine for this recipe, as one will be needed to beat the eggs, one to prepare the sauce, and an extra bowl, just in case. 
  • Whisk – A whisk is essential for this recipe to beat the eggs and get them all light and fluffy. 
  • Skillet – A large skillet, preferably cast iron, will be needed to make the eggs and heat the sausages. 
  • Large Knife – A large knife will help you slice the bagel in half before creating your breakfast bagel sandwich. 
  • Spatula – A silicone spatula will help easily fold and flip the omelet. 
  • Oven Tray – This is a necessary piece of equipment only if you would like to toast the bagels in the oven, but you can also do so on the skillet.

What Ingredients Will You Need To Make McDonald’s Breakfast Bagel? 

  • Bagels – Of course, it cannot be a breakfast bagel sandwich without some bagels! Since this recipe has enough quantities to make four sandwiches, four bagels will do just fine, either plain or sesame sprinkled. 
  • Eggs – Breakfast is empty without a good old fluffy omelet, and four large eggs will work perfectly fine for four bagel sandwiches. 
  • Sausage – About eight ounces of breakfast sausage will be needed for this recipe, which will be flattened and cooked further to add to the sandwiches. 
  • Monterey Jack Cheese – Four cheese slices will add a gooey finish to the sandwich. Monterey Jack cheese is not mandatory, so that you can use American or cheddar cheese slices instead. 
  • Butter – To make the flavor of the eggs and sausages shine, we’ll be cooking them in just a teaspoon full of salted butter. 
  • Salt and Black Pepper – These are the two essential seasonings we’ll add to the eggs, and ½ a teaspoon of each will work fine. 

For The Sauce: 

  • Mayonnaise – Just two tablespoons of mayonnaise will form the base for the scrumptious sauce that gives this breakfast bagel a lot of flavors. 
  • Dill Mustard – A teaspoon of dill mustard will be added to the sauce for a little kick of spice. 
  • White Onion – Lastly, we’ll be adding two teaspoons of minced white onion to the sauce, yet again for great flavor.

Steps To Make McDonald’s Breakfast Bagel

1. Get All The Elements Ready

This breakfast bagel is straightforward to prepare. You can start by getting all the elements ready. First, prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients mentioned in a small bowl and keeping it aside. 

Next, place the skillet on medium heat, add the butter to it, and let it simmer. Meanwhile, whisk a single egg in a large bowl until fluffy, then add it to the skillet. You can add all four eggs at a time and divide them into four portions later if you like. 

Once the egg is all fluffy, add it to the skillet, and let the edges cook for a few minutes. Then, start folding the edges from all sides to get a square-shaped omelet, and let it cook on both sides by flipping it over at just the right time. 

After the eggs are ready, divide the breakfast sausage into four portions, and flatten them out as per the bagel size. Place them in the same skillet and cook for a few minutes on both sides until golden brown. Slice bagels and grill them in the oven for a few minutes or toast them in the same skillet until they have charred edges. 

2. Assemble The Breakfast Bagel

Once all your elements are ready, you can begin with the assembly of this breakfast bagel. Spread ½ tablespoon of sauce on one side of each bagel, preferably the top portion. 

Next, add a slice of cheese to each of the bottom pieces, then place the sausage patty on top, followed by the square omelet, and finally, the top portion of the bagel. Enjoy this breakfast bagel with a hot cup of coffee!
