This used to be my favorite menu item at my local bagel place when I was in college. If you add some thinly sliced red onions and lemon pepper, it is absolutley amazing! The lemon pepper is essential. Sounds weird but seriously you have to try it!!! Read More

I eat these ALL the time they are especially tasty with fresh garden tomatoes. My Mom who is from England served this to us kids (on an english muffin & cottage cheese instead of cream cheese) with a "spot of tea" growing up. Yum. Thanks Patt! Read More

Queenie you are right! This IS a killer tomato bagel sandwich! I've been trying to clear out perishable food in the house for the last couple of days since I'm leaving town and this was perfect to use up fresh basil and tomatoes. So much more interesting and flavorful than the plain ol' bagel and cream cheese I was planning on having until I decided to do a little AR recipe investigating. Simple yet satisfying and delicious.

I love how the cream cheese gets warm and gooey on toasted bagels. Mmmmmm... Husband took a bite and looked like he'd died and gone to heaven. Quick easy and delicious! Thanks Patt! Read More

This is yummy! I love to do mine with onion bagels and regular cream cheese (or vise versa) and topped with tomatoes avocados and alfalfa sprouts. Also good with a good deli turkey. You can do whatever you want with these they make a great lunch! Read More
