Happy National Bagel Day!
I loves me a bagel. Plain, sesame, cinnamon and raisin, doesn’t matter what flavour, I’ll happily scoff them all.
I became addicted to the New York Bakery Co red onion and chive bagels last year while I was pregnant. I was especially fond of them with turkey, lettuce, mayo and cranberry sauce. Yum.
New York Bakery Co very kindly sent me a selection of bagels so I could come up with some new bagel toppings.
I called this one sausage mozzarella melt – pork sausages, fresh sliced tomato, basil and lots of melted mozzarella on the oh so good cheese bagel. On a side note, I think the cheese bagels would be really good with bacon and sweet chilli sauce – I’ll be trying that soon.
Next was a little spin on the NY classic pastrami sandwich – American mustard, layers of pastrami and gherkins on a red onion and chive bagel.
I wanted to come up with a sweet bagel so here’s a super easy and quick idea – lemon blueberry cheesecake bagel. Stir a little icing sugar and lemon zest into cream cheese. Spread on a cinnamon and raisin bagel and top with fresh blueberry sauce.
Here are some more bagel toppings we are currently addicted to:
Ham and cheese, melted under the grill (my eldest son loves this)
Banana and peanut butter
Cream cheese cucumber and chives
Cream cheese and strawberry jam (on a cinnamon and raisin)
What’s your favourite bagel filling?
