Heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat. Coat it with cooking spray. While the pan is heating up, whisk one egg, one tablespoon of water and a pinch or two of salt and pepper in a small bowl. When ready, add the egg to the frying pan, swirling it around the coat the whole bottom of the pan. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes, until the egg is mostly set. Using a spatula flip the egg to cook through.

To assemble the bagel, top with the egg crepe, add sliced olives (eyes) and oval pieces of cheese (beak).

To make the pig's ears, cut a slice of ham in half and fold each piece over. To make the snout, using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut a large oval shape out of the cheese.
To assemble the bagel, add ears at the top and then add two additional slices of ham to the bagel. Add olives as eyes and the cheese as the snout. Top the snout with two dots of mustard and add a smiley face underneath.
