Bagels are always a favorite in this house. Here are some old traditional combos and some new crazy ones to fill your plate!
1) Pizza Bagel
The traditional, do-a-tiny-pizza-in-the-toaster-oven bagel never goes out of style. This easy snack, or dinner if made in large enough quantities, is also so easy to accomplish with English muffins, but bagels are a current favorite.
2) Tuna Melt
Nothing like some cheese and tuna. Add some mayo underneath the tuna first, to give it that extra tang.
3) Cream Cheese and Cucumbers
A crunchy, fresh delight, this is a perfect summertime snack, post bike-ride.
4) Pretzels, Potato Chips and Nutella
Ok, these next recipes are from Lauren Zaser and Alice Monkongllite at Buzzfeed- trust them for some wild bagel fun, unlikely to be found anywhere else. Read on and delve into new territory!
5) Jalapenos, Cheese Whiz and Fritos
Pickled jalapenos, Cheese Whiz and crunchy Fritos-yum!
6) Bagel S’mores
Lucky Charm Marshmallows, Nutella and Graham Crackers, enough said.
7) Guacamole Bagel
Get some guacamole and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos for this chart topper.
8) Pork and Beans Bagel
Who said you can’t put them on a bread? Pork rinds, hot sauce and bean dip.
9) Funyuns and Ranch
10) Pickles, Peanut Butter and Potato Chips
This one is touted as the pregnancy bagel. Sounds good to me, they all start with ‘p’ so it’s a match.
Remember to lightly toast all bagels for the extra satisfying bite. Grab some snacks and invent your own next time your standing in the supermarket line. Come to think of it, looks like we need one with Skittles and maybe strawberry cream cheese, and some jam added in for good measure. Something for afternoon tea. Delish.
