"This sandwich mixes the goodness of bagels with the crunch of dill pickles. I came up with this sandwich for my son who loves bagels and cream cheese but I felt his favorite needed something extra to really make it a lunch. This is kid-tested good, and you can alter the veggies according to what your child likes."

Great sandwich! I used laughing cow herb and garlic spread and light Cheddar cheese. I also used an onion bagel that I lightly toasted - this was perfect for a light lunch.
