When we made these for dinner a few weeks ago, I told Bart “I always feel like sandwiches are a cop-out dinner. But that’s ridiculous because I love sandwiches.”
Also, something about a bagel feels more exciting (mainly because I rarely buy bagels).
Add some bacon, tomato and spinach? Now we’re talking.
We had it with a green smoothie and everyone was happy.
Plus, we had enough of all the ingredients leftover to make another round for lunch the next day.
Bacon and Avocado Bagel Sandwiches
Makes 2 bagel sandwich
2 plain bagels, toasted
4 ounces plain cream cheese
1 Tablespoon dried dill
8-10 baby spinach leaves
4-5 slices of cooked bacon
1 small tomato, sliced
1/2 avocado, sliced or mashed
1 Tablespoon mayo (optional)
Salt and Pepper
Mix the dill and cream cheese together (I do mine in my stand mixer). Spread on bottom half of the bagels. Press the spinach leaves into the cream cheese and then layer on the bacon, tomato and avocado. Spread the mayo (if using) on the top half of the bagels and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Ta-da! Dinner is served.
