To get involved, budding food writers simply need to upload their favourite bagel recipe at by Sunday 5th May with the most popular recipes featuring in the online recipe book.

Here's my entry : ULTIMATE BRUNCH BAGEL 

Imagine the luxury of Breakfast at Tiffany's - scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, fresh dill, cracked black pepper and gherkins, on a red onion & chive bagel. The perfect start to a lazy Sunday. :)
Ingredients: Onion Bagel with Scrambled Egg, Salmon, Dill, Gherkin, Pepper

Here are some more recipe suggestions from New York Bakery co :

Diner Breakfast
- Toast a Wholemeal or Plain bagel and top with creamy scrambled egg, cracked black pepper and crispy NY style bacon
