Ian's Bagel Sandwich

(Wow, has it really been a month since I've posted a recipe?! I've been so busy with two children under the age of two, trying to sell our house, trying to keep the house clean for showings, and having a husband who travels every other week, I just haven't had the time to try new recipes :) Plus I packed up all of my recipe books & magazines. Doh! Well, I am hoping to post a little more often than once a month!!)


We went to the beach over the summer with Jordan's brother Ian. He made these bagel sandwiches that Jordan an I really liked. There were a few different variations but the one we made at home had pimento cheese, avocado, bean sprouts, and tomato. Great for a weekend lunch and oh so yummy!

We used everything bagels but feel free to use whatever kind of bagel you like. Start out by toasting your bagel.

Add a layer of pimento cheese, bean sprouts, sliced avocado, then salt & pepper.

Top with your tomato slices and the bottom part of the bagel. Flip the sandwich over so the pimento layer is on top. Enjoy!

My version uses cream cheese instead of pimiento cheese and adds salt and pepper. The salt and pepper are important to make the tomato flavor POP!

Also, obviously any bagel will work, but I prefer sesame seed, onion, or everything bagels, in that order.

Huh, Jordan swears you used pimento cheese. Either way - it was good!

We added salt and pepper too - but after we had a bite and realized they needed it. :)
