Steak, Eggs, and Cheese on Homemade Onion Bagels

What do you make when you have leftover steak? I know what you are thinking right now. Who the heck has leftover steak??? I made fennel and garlic rubbed ribeye last night and we had one left over. (PS. Recipe for the ribeyes coming soon!) This morning I woke up and I knew exactly what that left over ribeye was destined to be. A glorious steak, egg, and cheese bagel. Not just any bagel though. I made these thin onion bagels. I wanted something warm and fragrant without too much bread. I didn’t want anything to compete with this insane steak.

This crunchy crust is reminiscent of a baguette. Crisp outside with a soft yeasty inside. I topped them with onion flakes for a nice flavor to go with the crunch. Lathered with salted butter they don’t need any kind of sauce (except hot sauce if you are a serious heat junky like me). Creamy scrambled eggs and melted American cheese top the bagel ¬†off before the grand finale. Sliced pan fried ribeye. Go ahead and take a second to clean up that drool. Its okay my mouth is watering again too.
