“This sandwich mixes the goodness of bagels with the crunch of dill pickles. I came up with this sandwich for my son who loves bagels and cream cheese but I felt his favorite needed something extra to really make it a lunch. This is kid-tested good, and you can alter the veggies according to what your child likes.”

Great sandwich! I used laughing cow herb and garlic spread and light Cheddar cheese. I also used an onion bagel that I lightly toasted - this was perfect for a light lunch.



Made as directed the 1st time. Well, minus the cheese (personal preference). Really enjoyed. Had again tonight for a light supper and made a few variations as to some fresh veggies I needed to use before I left town. I added fresh sliced tomatoes, thin slices of a sweet onion, basil from my garden and a handful of fresh spinach I had left on a whole wheat bagel. Very tasty and refreshing whether as written or using your own variations. Thanks for the recipe idea for a light and healthy alternative to a burger.



This sandwich is now trucker approved as well!LOL I made this for my husband a few days ago. The veg crisper was full so I added a some bell pepper and tomato slices as well, and the bagelwich was ready to go. My husband actually called from the road to say how much he liked it! Thank you for posting this, VeggieLovinHippie!:)
