This used to be my favorite menu item at my local bagel place when I was in college. If you add some thinly sliced red onions and lemon pepper, it is absolutley amazing! The lemon pepper is essential. Sounds weird but seriously you have to try it!!!

Meh. Wasn't great, wasn't bad. I was hoping this would make me excited but it didn't really.

Try it with herb and garlic cream cheese and alternating cucumber and tomato slices :)

I eat these ALL the time, they are especially tasty with fresh garden tomatoes. My Mom, who is from England, served this to us kids (on an english muffin, & cottage cheese instead of cream cheese) with a "spot of tea" growing up. Yum. Thanks Patt!

Queenie, you are right! This IS a killer tomato bagel sandwich! I've been trying to clear out perishable food in the house for the last couple of days since I'm leaving town, and this was perfect to use up fresh basil and tomatoes. So much more interesting and flavorful than the plain ol' bagel and cream cheese I was planning on having until I decided to do a little AR recipe investigating. Simple, yet satisfying and delicious.

Great for lunch, especially with a little fresh minced garlic on top!

I love how the cream cheese gets warm and gooey on toasted bagels. Mmmmmm... Husband took a bite, and looked like he'd died and gone to heaven. Quick, easy and delicious! Thanks, Patt!

This is probably my favorite sandwhich ever. I've been making it since I could spread cream cheese!In fact, I just made myself one for lunch tomorrow! I slice red onions and add them as well. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add ANYTHING you fancy to the bagels! YUM.
