TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 breakfast turkey sausage links
  • 1 slice (1 ounce) pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 plain bagels (4 inches each), split
  • Dash chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salsa
  • 2 slices red onion

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and cilantro; set aside. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, jalapeno, salt and pepper; set aside.
  • 2. In a small nonstick skillet, cook sausages over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink; drain. Remove and keep warm. Pour egg mixture into the skillet; cook over medium heat. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, place cheese over one side; fold omelet over cheese. Cover and let stand for 1-1/2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 3. Cut omelet in half; place on bagel bottoms. Cut sausage links in half lengthwise; place over omelets. Sprinkle with chili powder. Top with salsa and onion. Spread cut side of bagel tops with mayonnaise mixture; place over onion. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
