Steak and Egg Bagel

May 19, 2022

McDonald’s steak, egg, and cheese bagel is so filling and delicious. It’s a fluffy omelet topped with melty cheese and hearty steak and onions. But this recipe? You can make it at home, so you don’t have to venture out for a meaty and decadent breakfast sandwich. And this way you can customize it to your liking.


2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, divided

1 small onion, sliced

1 teaspoon salt, divided

1/2 pound shaved steak

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 plain bagels

4 large eggs

4 slices American cheese

Steak sauce, optional

Steps to Make It

Gather your ingredients.

Melt a tablespoon of the butter in a small, nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to the pan and sauté until just softened and lightly browned.

Meanwhile, toss the shaved steak with the Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and some of the ground black pepper.

Transfer the onion to a plate. Increase the heat to high and add the shaved steak to the pan in one even layer. Cook, without stirring, for 2 minutes or until the steak is browned. Stir and continue to cook until completely cooked through. Transfer the steak to the plate with the onion. Cover to keep warm.

Toast the bagels, then spread 1 tablespoon of the butter over the 4 halves.

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the pan over low heat. Add half of the beaten eggs and cook, gently stirring, with a rubber spatula to expose the raw egg to the bottom of the pan to create an omelet.

Once the omelet is cooked through, fold it in half with the rubber spatula.

Then, fold the omelet in half once more and top with 2 slices of the cheese.

Repeat with the remaining eggs and cheese.

Divide the steak and onion between 2 of the bagel halves. Top each with the eggs and cheese, then cover with the remaining bagel halves.

Eat immediately. Serve with steak sauce for dipping or spooning over the top, if desired.

Recipe Tips

If you want to make a larger batch, you can simply scramble the eggs so you don’t have to make omelets one at a time.
You can make the onion and steak ahead of time and heat it up in the pan quickly before you’re ready to serve. This is also a great recipe for using leftover steak. Slice it and heat it in a pan with the onion.
