Bagels with Homemade Egg Salad Recipe

The 15th of January is International Bagel Day, so what better way is there to celebrate than by eating one? I’ve had a lot of amazing bagels while I was in America, but I wanted this one to be simple & comforting. You can whip this creamy homemade egg salad up in no time, and it goes great with the crunchy bagel.

Serves: 2   |  Prep Time: 10 mins  |  Cook Time: 10-14 mins  | Total: 20-24 mins


  • 2 bagels, bake-off or fresh
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise (I personally used Hellmann’s)
  • 1 tbsp French mustard
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • ground salt & pepper to taste

When you’re going to eat these delicious bagels, you might want to grab enough napkins, or just eat the individual halves. Because from personal experience, I can tell that the creamy egg salad will get everywhere. It’s totally worth it though!

How to make Bagels with Homemade Egg Salad

  1. If needed, preheat your oven according to the instructions on the package of your bagels.
  2. Either boil your eggs for 10 minutes in boiling water or cook them for 14 minutes in an air fryer to get hard-boiled eggs. I personally love cooking eggs in the air fryer since it has a built-in timer and I find that the eggs are easier to peel as well!
  3. In the meantime, finely chop your fresh chives and add them to a bowl. Then add the mayonnaise, French mustard, and curry powder, and mix well.
  4. If needed, bake your bagels according to the instructions.
  5. Once the eggs are done cooking, immediately shock them in cold water to make them easier to peel later on. I usually let them sit there for a couple of minutes.
  6. Peel your eggs and then chop them into small pieces. Add them to the bowl with the mayonnaise mixture and mix well. Taste, and add ground salt & pepper as needed.
  7. Cut your bagels in half. You can either spread the egg salad on both individual halves so that the salad won’t fall out while taking a bite or just spread it on the bottom half if you don’t mind things getting messy while eating.
  8. They’re ready, enjoy your bagels!
