The weekend is almost here and I have the perfect lazy-Saturday-morning breakfast for you. It could also be a weekday breakfast. Or a Sunday brunch recipe. Or a Wednesday-last-minute-dinner-idea. Just saying.
Alex and I have a favorite breakfast spot, which I’ve talked about a lot on the blog. Lamplighter has a few locations around Richmond but the one on Addison St. is obviously the best one.
Their coffee is great but their bagel sandwiches, that’s where it’s at.
We can’t go as often as I’d like to (because let’s be honest, I’d like to go everyday… and the hipster coffee + bagels aren’t cheap) so I decided to try my hand at recreating this at home.
My go-to order at Lamplighter is the “Katie” sandwich. If you ever go to Lamplighter, you must order it, and tell them I sent you. (Just kidding. If you tell them, they won’t know who you’re talking about.) But if you’re not in Richmond… then make this. RIGHT NOW.
I’m not even going to give you a real recipe, I’ll just give you a grocery list:
- 1 everything bagel
- 4 avocado slices
- 2 tbsp hummus (I like garlic or pine nut hummus)
- 1 tbsp diced red onion
- Handful of spinach
- 2 slices of tomato (if it’s in season, otherwise I skip it)
Slice and toast your bagel, then add all the toppings. Dig in! The hummus + avocado combo is ah-maze-ing. I might have to just whip that into a sandwich spread and eat it on everything because it’s so tasty. But first, have it on an everything bagel. I don’t know what spices are on an everything bagel but the everything must mean everything magical.
I could definitely eat this everyday and be a happy girl.
