Hamlette Bagel


8 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup (125 mL) diced cooked ham
1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter or margarine
1 tsp (5 mL) all purpose flour

4 slices crisp bacon (optional)


In a bowl, lightly beat eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in parsley and ham. Brush four 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins or custard cups with melted butter or margarine; dust with flour. Divide egg mixture among the four dishes. Microwave uncovered one at a time on High (100%) for 1½ to 2 minutes.

Slice and toast bagels. Set aside in a warm oven.

Unmould a hamlette on each lower bagel half. Top each with a slice of tomato, a slice of bacon and the remaining bagel half.
