Although the classic and everybody’s favorite “Bacon, Egg and Cheese” sandwich will always be at the top of the list. This breakfast alternative, created in a New York apartment, has become just as popular. The taste is absolutely incredible when combined with a lightly toasted bagel and a spread of your favorite cream cheese. Trust us we’ve tried it and loved it and are now recommending it to you!

Let’s get started, because I’m just starving now!
Bagel (whole grain optional)
Tomato (Kumato) – sliced into thin slices
Salt & Pepper – to taste
Cut bagel into half or into quarters, however you prefer to eat it. I use a whole grain bagel, avoiding the extra calories and cut mine into half.
Spread cream cheese of your choice over each individual half and place slices of tomato over the cream cheese. You can place as many slices of tomato as you’d like. The type of tomato that you use is up to you. I don’t recommend cherry tomato as they will probably fall off the sandwich before you take a bite.
Sprinkle Za’atar Spice, salt, pepper and dill and you’ve got the yummiest breakfast chow to hit this city in a very long time. I guarantee it.
Use a bagel or bread of your choice. I have made this sandwich using pita bread which contains only one gram of fat per pita. I have also used flax or chia seed crackers and made individual snacks for kids.
Use a tomato of your choice. The taste or color is up to you. I have made this sandwich using plum, green and even purple tomatoes. It all depends on what I have in my fridge at the time.
The cream cheese you use is also up to you. If you’re lactose intolerant, then I would recommend using a cream cheese that has a low level of lactose. If you’re vegan, there are manufacturers that produce vegan cream cheeses.
Now grab a cup of your favorite coffee and you’ve got breakfast of champions!
