Reuben Bagel Sandwich

Sometimes you make a resolution to be healthier, but then sometimes you remember you have corned beef and bagels in your fridge and they would make for a perfect Reuben bagel sandwich.

We also don’t have Thousand Island dressing in the fridge, so I made some with Greek yogurt, ketchup, relish, garlic powder, salt, and a teeny bit of vinegar. I googled “Greek yogurt Thousand Island Dressing” and got a lot of search results. I kinda just whipped up a dressing adding things in until I liked how it tasted. I thought what I made tasted good! But then again, I couldn’t tell you the last time I had Thousand Island, so I’m not too sure how it really is supposed to taste.

Seeing as though I don’t like sauerkraut and Swiss cheese though, I made some tweaks to make the sandwich to my liking. The substitutes I made was sauteed onions instead of sauerkraut, American cheese instead of Swiss, and of course, a bagel instead of rye bread. I could imagine this breakfast Reuben tasting great on rye bread too, though!


This sandwich was really really good- it helps that the egg was cooked to my liking as well. It is so disappointing when you are making yourself an egg and you over cook it. You are looking forward to cutting into the runny yolk, and then you just get dense cooked yolk. Depressing. BUTTTT, that was not the case this morning.

I did only eat one half and I shared my other half. So does that mean I’m kinda being healthy and a nicer person?! Maybe I am continuing to work on my resolutions after all. Have a great Saturday, everyone!

Below is the printable recipe for this delicious bagel sandwich!


Reuben Bagel Sandwich


  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 slice of Onion
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Bagel
  • 2 slices Corned Beef
  • 1 slice American Cheese
  • 1-2 tbsp Thousand Island Dressing


  • In a frying pan, heat up your 1 tbsp of oil on high heat. After 2 minutes, turn down the heat to medium-low and put your onions on the pan.
  • Cook your onions for about 5 minutes, until they are browned. Push them aside, and crack your egg onto the frying pan.
  • While your egg is cooking, put your bagel in the toaster. Get your cheese and corned beef ready while the egg and bagel are cooking.
  • Once your egg is cooked to how you like it, and your bagel is toasted, start layering. From bottom to top I did: Thousand Island, corned beef, egg, onion, cheese.
  • Cut in half, and enjoy!
