South African’s are no stranger to a good burger, but how about taking a tip from New York and trying these delicious bagel breakfast burgers?
MAKES 4 // COOKING TIME 30 min
4 bagels, halved
4 beef burger patties
200 g micro rocket
2 avocados, sliced
1. Using a small 4 cm cookie cutter, make the hole in your bagel tops slightly bigger to make a nice nest for the eggs.
2. Heat some oil over low-medium heat in a pan and add your 4 bagel tops, cut side down. Crack an egg into each bagel hole, pop the lid on and allow to cook for about 5 minutes, until the eggs are done. Remove from the pan and set aside.
3. Turn the heat to high and cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side. Lower the heat, cover and allow to cook for another 5 minutes.
4. Arrange the rocket on the bottom halves of the bagels. Top with a patty and avocado slices, and close with the top half of the bagel.
