Step 1

Blend the mushrooms in a food processor and stir into the remaining patty ingredients. Form into four patties and leave to rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Grill or sauté the patties until browned. This should take about three to four minutes on each side.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crisp and set aside on some kitchen paper.

Step 4

Heat a heavy-based saucepan with the butter and when it melts, add the eggs and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 5

Cook gently, folding with a spatula until the eggs are gently setting and scrambled.

Step 6

Heat the bagels in a toaster or under the grill and serve topped with the patties, bacon, scrambled egg and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
