Egg in a Bagel Hole FAQs
Can I make this recipe without bagels?
If you don't have any bagels on hand, don't panic yet. Do you have regular sliced bread? That works just as well! Simply cut a hole into your slice of bread and follow all the directions the same as you would for a bagel. Easy peasy!
Is this breakfast vegan?
You can easily replace the cheddar cheese with vegan cheese, or just get rid of it. But the egg is a bit trickier to replace. Ultimately, this breakfast dish is not vegan, but it is vegetarian!
