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.

I'm only giving this 3 stars. I just didn't like it as much as other people did. Read More

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. Read More

Very delicious! I did not toast my bagel but I wish I would have. It got a little soggy after sitting for while without toasting. I used a sesame bagel low-fat garden vegetable cream cheese spinach leaves sliced tomato sliced pickles and colby jack cheese. You can really use any veggies you like. Great idea! Read More

Nice little sandwich--something I might have done on my own but with mustard not cream cheese. I had some leftover cream cheese though and thought I'd try it. I only had meunster not chedder but it worked well. I didn't have enough cream cheese and this sandwich really needs some "glue" on both sides so I did end up adding my mustard on the top bagel half. Thanks! Very good! Good way to get veggies and feel a little better about not eating too much fat! Read More

Just what I needed today to round out a lunch of Taco Soup. I cut this one sandwich in half to share with my husband. I used an Everything Bagel and I added a couple slices fresh tomato and I made my own herb and garlic cream cheese out of reduced fat cream cheese and spices and fresh garlic. Thanks for sharing this--we're quite tight on money but even so we didn't miss the meat and we were quite fulfilled. Thanks veggielovinhippie! Read More
