The pioneer woman made a quick and easy bagel breakfast. During her show, she had a playful exchange with her daughter Alex, telling her to stop “scrutinizing” her cooking technique. This is how Ree Drummond’s Mini Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches are made.
Ree Drummond’s Mini Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches
Drummond describes their Mini Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches as an “all-in-one” sandwich. “I’m using small bagels and I’m going to build them nice and tall with all the good things in life,” says Drummond in the pioneer woman Show.
Drummond begins by making an omelette. He mixes eggs, half and half, salt and pepper in a measuring cup. She pours the mixture into a buttered nonstick skillet. She then covers the pan with a lid and lets the egg cook for about four minutes. Drummond turns on a griddle and butters the griddle so she can toast mini bagels of everything.
“You can stop at your local fast food chain and grab something to go, but it never ceases to amaze me how delicious homemade breakfast sandwiches are,” says Drummond. “If you take a little time and build your own, they are always worth it.”

For the next step, Drummond places sausages on the griddle. She says she “cheats” a bit by using a superhero short cut and heating up pre-cooked sausage patties. She says you can also use raw sausage if you prefer, since it doesn’t take that long to cook.
Once the tortilla is done, Drummond removes it from the pan and folds it. Then he gets ready to make the sandwiches for breakfast. Drummond loves mini bagels because regular sized bagels are “huge.” She says that when you build a sandwich on a regular bagel, once you bite into it, you can barely fit your mouth around the sandwich.

For the first step in building the sandwich, Drummond puts chipotle mayonnaise on the bun. She says that you can make your own by combining chipotle with mayonnaise. She says you can use the bottled version or any dressing you like. Two dressings she recommends are honey mustard and pesto mayonnaise.
Next, Drummond places the sausage on top of the bagel. She suggests bacon, ham, or “whatever makes you float,” if sausage isn’t your preference. Drummond then adds half a piece of American cheese and half of Pepper Pack cheese. Finally, he adds a piece of tortilla, a slice of tomato and a piece of avocado. She brings it all together by sprinkling all of the bagel seasoning over the avocado.
The Drummond kids think the bagel sandwich is too “tall” and looks “weird” because it has so many ingredients, but she says she thinks her creation looks amazing. She says you can give the bagel a “squish” to make it easier to eat. At one point during the show, when Alex makes a negative comment about the bagel, Drummond playfully scolds her, saying, “Alex, stop examining everything I do!” By the end of the episode, Alex and the rest of the Drummond family agree that their mini bagel sandwiches for breakfast are really good. Alex praises her mom’s creation and says it has a lot of flavor. She can find the full ingredients and instructions here.
