4. Avocado Tuna Salad Bagel Sandwich

Served on a whole wheat bagel with fresh greens, this amazing tuna salad sandwich is practically a superfood.

Vegetarian sandwiches don’t have to involve limp lettuce and slimy tomato slices.

This bagel is not for the faint-hearted.

You’ll need an appetite to take on this towering pile of Italian salami, bacon, provolone cheese, and spicy peppers.

It’s a giant of a sandwich, so make this one on days when the hunger is real.

7. Avocado Egg Salad Bagel Sandwich

Fresh and light, egg salad is one of my all-time favorite sandwich fillings, which is why I’m really excited about this recipe.

It starts with a classic egg salad, but then everything gets taken up a notch with the addition of avocado, fresh herbs, and crisp veggies.

Smoosh it together with cream cheese and microgreens for the best egg sandwich you will ever eat in your life. And no, that’s not an exaggeration.

8. Blistered Blueberry Grilled Cheese with Mascarpone and Brie

I don’t know if this blueberry bagel is breakfast, brunch, or dessert. I don’t care, because it’s just delicious any time of day.

If you’ve never heard of blistered blueberries, you’re in for a treat.

The berries are cooked over high heat with a spoonful of brown sugar until they explode in juicy deliciousness.

Pile your blistered berries onto a soft bagel spread with brie and mascarpone.

Add fresh basil and toast until the cheese goes perfectly melty and gooey. 

9. Avocado Tomato Bagelwich

Kudos to this recipe for using the term ‘bagelwich,’ and extra points for being amazingly tasty.

Thick slices of juicy heirloom tomatoes are piled onto a chewy, grainy bagel with cream cheese, avocado, and microgreens. 

Sprinkle it with smoked sea salt and drizzle with olive oil just before serving. Welcome to bagelwich heaven.

10. Pizza Bagels

Pizza is delicious, that’s just a fact of life. But it’s even more delicious when you take all those delightful Italian flavors and cram them into a toasted bagel.

This recipe follows the classic pizza template – gooey cheese, rich tomato paste, meaty pepperoni – but you can easily adapt this to taste.

Try it Hawaiian-style, skip the meat for a vegetarian-friendly version, or make a spicy snack with jalapenos on top.

Welcome to the wonderful world of pizza bagels! 

11. Raisin Bagel Sandwich

These raisin bagels are perfect for breakfast or any time you need a sweet and savory snack.

In this unique recipe, raisin and cinnamon bagels are crammed with a turkey and cream cheese filling.

There’s a lot of different flavors going on here, all beautifully complementing each other.

Dairy-free and fully delicious, it’s an easy way to turn a poppy seed bagel into a healthy, hearty meal.

13. Ham and Cheese Bagels

There are days when you can cook up a five-course meal without breaking a sweat.

Then there are days when you just want something simple, tasty, and easy.

This classic bagel is for those days. Grab a plain bagel, add cheese, ham, and veggies for a simple but satisfying lunch. 

14. Cranberry Turkey Bagel

Cranberries and turkey are one of the all-time great food combos. Tart and tangy, sweet and savory, it just works.

Especially in this recipe, where sliced smoked turkey cozies up to cranberry sauce, cream cheese, and red onion. 

15. Bagel Tuna Melt

Tuna melts are a great way to get healthy fish into picky kids (and fussy adults). 

This delicious bagel brings both nutrition and taste to the table. Layered with tuna salad and melted cheese, it’s both easy and irresistible. 

16. Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Chicken Bagel Sandwiches

Stop grabbing lunch from the nearest drive-thru, or corner store. Pack this red pepper and pesto sandwich into your lunch box, and your belly will thank you.

Made with sweet red peppers, flavorful pesto, fresh spinach, and juicy chicken, it’s perfection in bagel form.  

17. Breakfast Fruit Bagel

It’s time to give your breakfast bagel a healthy makeover.

Pile it up with cream cheese and a whole heap of fruits to transform boring breakfasts into magical meals.

This recipe recommends a bright fruit salad of berries, kiwis, and oranges but don’t be afraid to get creative.

Use your favorite fruits, or whatever’s in season, to keep your taste buds guessing. 

18. Sun Dried Tomato, Sprouts And Cream Cheese Bagel Sandwich Recipe

Quick, filling, tasty, and easy – this vegetarian bagel recipe ticks all the culinary boxes.

Juicy sweet sun-dried tomatoes are layered with peppery sprouts and rich cream cheese for a loaded bagel that’s great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

Warm the bagels, load them up and eat them while they’re still hot.

Made with creamy hummus, zesty pine nut pesto, and veggies, these deliver loads of flavor without weighing you down.

21. Asiago Cheese Bagel Sandwich

Asiago is an Italian cheese known for its crumbly texture and mild, creamy taste.

It’s the perfect addition to this satisfying sandwich, made with sliced ham, fresh lettuce, and chunky tomatoes.

Easy and convenient, it’s the perfect grab-and-go lunch for busy days. 

22. Spinach Artichoke Bagel Melts

This crazy good recipe is a creative combo of two delicious dishes – spinach artichoke dip and grilled cheese.

If you like both those snacks (and who doesn’t?!), you’ll lose your mind for this recipe.

Crispy toasted bread is heaped with a gooey, melty, creamy topping.

I can’t even explain how good this is. You’ll just have to make it and see for yourself.

23. Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese  

For this easy recipe, you’ll need an everything bagel, lots of cheese, and a longing for gooey goodness.

    • Hi Betty!
      I’ve been to the Bagel Shop in Toronto!
      I used to get the Bagel Club or the BLT, but I don’t remember seeing a seafood recipe – just a tuna salad.
      Do you remember what kind of seafood was in it?
