SANTA FE BAGEL SANDWICH
Einstein Bros. Bagel Copycat Recipe
Makes 2 Sandwiches
6 ounces turkey breakfast sausage
3 ounces eggs, beaten (about 2/3 cup)
2 bagels, sliced in half
2 slices pepper jack cheese
2 tablespoons medium salsa
Jalapeno Salsa Cream Cheese
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup medium salsa
2 tablespoons jalapeno slices from jar, minced
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
Make the Jalapeno Salsa Cream Cheese by mixing all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and chill cream cheese until it's needed.
Make the turkey sausage patties by forming sausage into two patties that are about 4 1/2 inches in diameter.
Beat the eggs in a bowl, then measure half (about 1/3 cup) into a bowl with the same approximate diameter as the bagels. Microwave each bowl (separately) for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high, or until the egg is completely cooked.
Lightly toast all of the bagel halves. Spread about 2 teaspoons of the Jalapeno Salsa Cream Cheese on the toasted face of the bottom half of the bagel.
When the eggs are cooked, arrange them on the cream cheese on each bagel bottom. Lay a slice of pepper jack cheese on each of the egg layers. Arrange a sausage patty on top of the cheese on each sandwich. Spread about 2 teaspoons of salsa on the toasted face of each of the top bagel halves. Top off the sandwiches with the top bagel halves, slice each sandwich in half and serve while hot.
