  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 heaping handfuls arugula
  • 2 eggs sunnyside up
  • 2 everything bagels toasted, I used gluten-free
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese or cheese of choice
  • 1/2 ripe apple sliced (I used an Envy apple)
  • 1/2 ripe bosc pear cored and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons fig preserves
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the sliced onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to sweat and turn translucent, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden-brown and caramelized, about 45 minutes more.
  2. Preheat the oven to the high broil setting.
  3. Slice the bagels in half and place them on a baking sheet. Toast on the top shelf of the oven under the broiler until golden-brown, about 1 minute. Remove bagels from the oven and add a slice of cheddar on all four slices of bagel. Place back in the hot oven until melted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Smear 1 tablespoon of fig preserves over each cheesy bagel slice.
  5. Top the bagel bottoms with wilted arugula, sliced apple, pear, caramelized onions, and a sunny side up egg. Place the bagel tops on top, slice in half and serve.
