Ingredients

8 slices bacon, chopped

8 ounces bulk Italian sausage, casings removed, chopped or crumbled

12 large eggs

3 tablespoons half-and-half

1 cup grated asiago

1 cup grated provolone

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper 

3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

1/4 cup sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoons Sriracha (or to taste)

1 scallion, minced

4 everything bagels, split and toasted

Atomic Hash Browns, for serving, recipe follows

Atomic Hash Browns:

2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, coarsely grated on a box grater and squeezed dry in a kitchen towel

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Special equipment:
3 1/2-inch-to-4-inch cookie cutter.
  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and set the oven to broil.
  2. In an ovenproof 12-inch nonstick skillet set over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until just crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Then set aside. Add the sausage, cooking until well browned and making sure to break it up as it cooks, about 6 minutes. Set the sausage aside with the bacon and discard all but 1 to 2 tablespoons of the pork fat.
  3. Whisk the eggs and half-and-half together. Add the egg mixture to the skillet with the pork fat, set it over medium heat and stir the eggs using a rubber spatula, scraping and tilting the pan to slide the egg mixture around the pan. Cook until the bottom is set and the top is still wet and glistening, 2 to 3 minutes. Then add in the cooked meats and cheeses, and season with salt and pepper. Use a spatula and press the ingredients into the eggs.
  4. Place in the oven and cook until lightly golden on top and puffed up, 2 to 4 minutes. Then let the frittata rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  5. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, Sriracha and scallions in a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Slide the frittata onto a cutting board and cut into rounds using a 3 1/2-inch-to-4-inch cookie cutter, depending on the size of your bagel. Place a frittata round on each bagel and top with a generous smear of sauce. Serve with a side of Atomic Hash Browns and some extra sauce for dippin'.

Atomic Hash Browns:

  1. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Toss the potatoes with the granulated garlic, paprika, cayenne and some salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. Add half of the butter and half of the oil to the skillet. Let melt, and then add the potatoes, pressing them down with a spatula. Cook until crisp and golden brown on one side, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Set a baking sheet or a large plate over the skillet and carefully invert the potatoes onto the baking sheet. Add the remaining butter and oil to the skillet and slide the potatoes back in, un-cooked side down, and cook until golden and crispy on the second side as well, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Slide onto a cutting board and cut into wedges to serve.
