While sous vide egg bites have taken the breakfast world by storm in recent years, bagel chain Einstein Bros. has taken the concept a step further and made entire bagels out of the eggs.
Their new “Eggels” are marketed as a gluten-free alternative to bagels, and are prepared the same way as a sous vide egg bite you might find in a grocery store or Starbucks. The big difference is obviously the size and shape of the fluffy eggs.
Einstein Bros. is releasing their Eggels in two different flavors: a Three Meat and Cheese Eggel with bacon, turkey sausage and ham, and a Veggie Egg White variety loaded with bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, and spinach.
It’ll be intriguing to see how well the egg bagels hold together, considering how light sous vide eggs can be when cooked. I’m also tempted to split one in half and schmear it in cream cheese, just like a regular bagel, to see how that turns out.
You can now find these Eggels at Einstein Bros. locations nationwide, excluding those in airports, universities, and hotels.
