Long live the build-up bagel

Posted by Joe Wicks in Recipes

Long live the build-up bagel. For some reason, people on my 90 Day SSS Plan go absolutely bonkers for this post-workout bagel. I think they feel naughty eating it - but, like I say, you've just trained and earned those carbs, so no need to feel guilty.


Remember to go for good-quality cooked meat, not the nasty cheap re-formed stuff. If you don’t want to bother with poaching the egg, you could always just boil and slice it instead.


1 egg

1 plain bagel

2 tsp chipotle paste or barbecue sauce

1 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt

large handful of rocket

1 tomato, sliced

150g deli-style cooked turkey or chicken breast

75g deli-style sliced roast beef


Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Carefully crack your egg into the hot water, reducing the heat until the water is just ‘burping’. Cook the egg for about 4 minutes for a runny yolk, then carefully lift it out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Slice the bagel in half and toast it for a couple of minutes.

Spread the toasted bagel evenly with the chipotle paste or barbecue sauce and the yoghurt, and then begin building your bagel: start with the rocket and tomato, followed by the turkey or chicken and the beef, then the poached egg. Finally, stick the top on the bagel and get munching.
