Tuna Breakfast BagelsJump to Recipe
My family tends to enjoy bland breakfasts. Most days Betsy and the kids will have oatmeal or maybe scrambled eggs or yogurt with some fruit. All good options, but some days I need more. I need more flavor and more protein and a big flavor boost to start my day.
Enter this Tuna Breakfast Bagel! Piled high with fresh veggies, cream cheese, Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna mixed with some lemon zest, and garnished with capers and chives! Ounce for ounce tuna is lower in calories, fat, sat fat, and cholesterol than even the leanest cuts of beef and chicken, which makes it an excellent breakfast protein. Suffice it to say that this breakfast bagel is far from bland. It’s pretty much everything I crave for breakfast!

Toppings for Tuna Breakfast Bagels
I love simple fresh vegetables on a bagel like this and some acidic sharpness as well from stuff like capers and chives.
Here’s the spread I made for these bagels: tomatoes, red onions, chives, and capers!
Making the Tuna Mixture
I kept my tuna mixture really easy and simple for this. The idea is that you can store it together basically while you make coffee! Tuna, some lemon zest, and a pinch of salt is all you need.
Making the Tuna Breakfast Bagels
Now it’s time to assemble! This is about as easy as it gets. Toast your bagel and smear on some cream cheese. Then top with red onion and tomato.
Pile your tuna mixture on high and then garnish with chives and capers. This is a delicious breakfast that is ready in just a few minutes!
In theory you can make some of the stuff for these Tuna Breakfast Bagels in advance. You could slice the veggies the night before and mix together the tuna, but honestly it’s such a fast recipe that I like to do it fresh in the morning.
Change up your breakfast and add some flavor to it! These breakfast bagels are where it’s at!
