    Add 2 tbsp butter to a skillet, heat over medium-high. Once melted, place the bagel halves in the pan, cut side down. Cook till browned, about 2-3 minutes.

    Flip bagel halves and arrange sliced avocado on each, but not overtop of the hole. Pour one egg into each opening, season with salt and pepper, and cover 2 of the 4 bagel halves with a cheese slice (you can break up the cheese slice to avoid covering the egg completely). Cover pan and cook until whites and yolks are cooked to your liking, approximately 4 to 6 minutes.
