Ingredients

Bagels – We are using plain bagels but everything, onion, poppy seeds, and cheese bagels also work great.

Steak – This recipes uses shaved steak. You could substitute with a small steak, just make sure to cook to your desired doneness.

Eggs – Allow for 2 eggs per sandwich. This recipe makes 2 sandwiches so a total of 4 eggs.

Cheese – I like American cheese but cheddar or provolone works well.

Onions – Half of a large white onion or small onion is all you need. You can also leave the onions out.

Butter – Unsalted butter is used to cook the onions, steak, and eggs.

Salt – Just a pinch needed for the onions.

Montreal steak seasoning – A seasoning blend for the steak. You can substitute with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Mayonnaise – Used to make the sauce for the bagel sandwich.

Mustard – Yellow mustard for the sauce.

Dried Dill – This adds a nice flavor to the sandwich sauce.

      Yeah, the real sauce is hollandaise. my first job was at McDonald’s when I was 16! The sauce comes pre-packaged like most things there, but it is labeled as hollandaise sauce. I made this recipe this morning to try it out, but the sauce had a very potent, overpowering mustard taste. It was good, but nothing like the McDonald’s version. I will try it again, but with a hollandaise sauce

  1. I really appreciate how well put together your web page is. I love how when you explain the ingredients to the dish you show separate photos that contain the individual ingredients one step at a time. very helpful. This is actually the first website I seen do this, usually they have a video. And sometimes people don’t have the time to watch, so for you guys to show how to make the dish with just pictures is very helpful.

    Very very yummy. Even though I made some small additions like I added onion, garlic powder, white and black pepper along with the Montreal steak seasoning with some zesty steak sauce and it tasted amazing.

    I was so hoping that this recipe would help me forget how McDonald’s broke my heart but it didn’t quite get there. It’s good and will do in a pinch. Thanks for posting.
