You're Perfect Sunday Morning Bagel Breakfast

Sesame bagel
Medium to thick spread on bottom, thin spread on top
Thick slice of tomato
Very thin slice of raw onion.

Sure I switched it up (on my second bagel), but this was pretty much my go to set up

What are other bagel fans set ups?

    thin schmear of cream cheese

    (heaven... just heaven)

    second go round, I'll do some chopped hard boiled egg and caper with the other half of the onion bagel and another thin schmear of cream cheese

      Love everything on there individually, but trying to think of how lox and avocado would mix and that is not to say I wouldn't try it

      1. re: jhopp217

        The very person who introduced me to eating lox in the first place is the one that introduced me to eating it with avocado cucumbers onion and capers

        The first time I had it in a restaurant I was so disappointed there was no avocado. It really is a great flavor together. (you can even omit the cream cheese, though I think the slight tang goes well)

    2. My access to good bagels is nil where I live, so forgive me for saying that a huge treat for me is Panera or Einstein bagels (be kind!).
      Toasted sesame bagel with sun-dried tomato cream cheese. Whipped.

              The Sunday Times is a given, haha! Although I think the half at a time is blasphemy, but judging from your name, you're not a glutonous male like myself. So you get a pass. Do you cut your burger too? HAHA!
