Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: BLT Breakfast Bagel | No Thanks to Cake

This fresh and savory twist on the Jenny Craig New York Style Sesame Bagel feels decadent. It's incredibly filling and reminiscent of my favorite brunch sandwich.



  • Cook your bacon per packaging instructions. Set aside to cool while you prepare the bagel. Note: For your turkey bacon to count as a lean protein option, you'll want to make sure that the brand you choose equates to about 45 calories, 7g protein, and less than 3g of fat per serving. In this example, you'll get to enjoy 1.5 servings using those quantities. Again, please see your Jenny Craig "Getting Started" Guide for more detail and speak with your Jenny Craig consultant to clarify any questions you might have.
  • Defrost your bagel by placing it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
  • Place the bagel in the toaster, at your desired temperature. Remove to a plate once it's done.
  • Season your tomatoes lightly with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Layer your lettuce, tomato, and bacon on the bagel. You can enjoy this as an open-faced sandwich or close it for a big mouth bagel sandwich feel. Enjoy!
