Chicken and Egg Bagel Burgers Recipe

Chicken and Egg Bagel Burgers, a perfectly seasoned chicken patty with an egg nested in the middle of it served on a toasted bagel, perfect for brunch or a light dinner
Hola Amigos! Happy Weekend! This is the perfect breakfast burger for a Sunday morning or a mid day brunch...and you know? why not...for those late evenings when you feel like having breakfast for dinner.
I think it's a great idea if you want to surprise your hungry kids with something different, they would enjoy it for sure, perhaps more than you because let's be honest it's a bit of a preparation, but so is that stack of fresh pancakes you always make them right?

I first found the inspiration for my recipe on Pinterest. They were meat burgers and not much detail was given. Since I wanted something light for breakfast I made them out of chicken and I'm sharing some tips with you if you want to make them with or without the egg.

Chicken and Egg Bagel Burgers
Chicken and Egg Bagel Burger, a perfectly seasoned chicken patty with an egg nested in the middle of it served in toasted bagel
1 Pound Fresh Ground Chicken
1 tsp minced onion
1 tsp garlic powder
5 Eggs
1 Cup Flour
1 TBSP Paprika
1 TBSP Onion Powder
1 TBSP Garlic Powder
1/2 TBSP Chili Powder
Salt & Pepper
Bagel Rolls of your Preference 
Cheese (optional)
Season your chicken with minced onion, garlic powder salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper.
To make the burgers now,  make 5 large chicken balls, dip them in the flour mix and flatten them. Take a cup and cut a hole on each flatten burger make burger #5 with the left over "inner circles". Now you are left with 5 chicken rings ready to be fried. I recommend you do this on a non stick pan because otherwise your eggs will stick to the bottom and it will be a mess. Brown your rings both sides, Once this is done, add the egg. Cover it up so it is done to the way you like it!

Sprinkle some cheese after you take them off the frying pan and put on your bagel

Like I mentioned before, it's a little bit of work involved but I think is the perfect dish when you want to say, because you are Special, because it's your Birthday or simply because I Love You!

The Chicken well cooked and seasoned goes awesome with my everything bagel! Maybe next time I'll even add turkey bacon!! Yum!

Thank you so much for sharing some time with me today! I hope you get the chance to prepare these burger for someone you care for and surprise them. Remember my friends, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
