It’s no secret we visit the beach weekly, and sometimes it is easier to pack a bagel breakfast sandwich and eat it there, rather than spending a lot of time cooking, eating and cleaning breakfast in the morning. We would rather hurry and get to the beach to enjoy our breakfast there. So, I created a yummy little breakfast sandwich that we can wrap up and take in our picnic basket. These are super simple too, with things you will have on hand. Nothing too fancy. Just yummy and filling for long days of sand castles and swimming.
David loves this sandwich, and my husband ate two this morning. If he approves, you know they are good.
Here is what you need to make TWO of the sandwiches. Make extra 🙂
2 bagels pre-sliced (keep it easy)
2 TBSP butter
Two slices of Mozzarella cheese (any cheese works really though)
2 round patties of your favorite sausage (I used two round jimmy dean ones I can pop in the microwave)
2 slices of tomato
Start by frying your eggs. Drop them in the pan on a low/medium heat and let them slowly cook. These are fried eggs, but we like the center semi-solid. Not totally runny because it is messy on the beach. Cook it how you like it, but just remember runny eggs and sand don’t go well!
While your eggs are cooking, toast your bagels in the oven or a toaster oven to melt the cheese on one side. I toasted for about 5 minutes at 400 F. Then, pop your sausage in the microwave.
While things are cooking, slice up your tomato. I sprinkle my tomatoes with a little sea salt to bring out the flavor.
When the bagels are done. lay them out and butter the other side (non-cheese side). Place the sausage patty, followed by one fried egg (well done) on top of the butter side. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the egg. This helps keep it on the sandwich. Add the tomato to the egg, then top with the melted cheese side. Wrap it up, and put it in your picnic basket!
This is seriously one of our favorite sandwiches! Having them ready to go the night before makes things even easier, so I highly recommend prepping ahead of time!

If you have no clue how to pump, or need help pumping more breast milk, READ THIS!
If breastfeeding in general is difficult, or you feel overwhelmed and worried, I found THIS so HELPFUL!!
Struggling to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding? I have the perfect solution for you!
Here’s what other mamas have said about my solution:
“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change. I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”
“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go! I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help! Currently eating pictures lunch while writing this ”
