Hot Egg Salad Bagel - Lo Cal and Delicious!

Prep Time: 30 minutes (including making the hard boiled eggs)

Bake Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients

4 eggs, I like using Egg-Land’s best

1 tablespoon Best Foods Light Mayonnaise (Hellmans) or your favorite light mayo

1 tablespoon pickle relish

1 teaspoon yellow mustard or spicy brown

A little salt and black pepper, to taste

1 bagel thin, I love the everything or choose your favorite, see shopping tip

4 thin slices of tomato

2 tablespoons light cheddar cheese
Instructions

1. To Cook Eggs-In a small pot, add eggs and cover with water.  Bring to a boil, turn down to simmer and cook for 20 minutes.  Drain water and place eggs in a bowl of ice water for 30 seconds. You want them to remain warm but not too hot to handle. Remove from water and peel eggs.

2. In a small bowl, using a cheese grater, shred 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites. Throw away the other 2 yolks or use them in another recipe. Stir in mayonnaise, relish, mustard and a little salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

4. Lightly toast 1 bagel thin. On top of each bagel thin lay 2 thin slices of tomato to each bagel half. Divide the egg salad mixture and place over the tomatoes. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cheese.

5. Place on a baking sheet and bake in oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Or, heat in microwave until cheese is melted.

6. Plate each and serve at once.
