Veggie Bagel

Now that we are finally having consistently warmer days, we are starting to see local vegetables making an appearance at our farmer's market. Today we hit the jackpot with tomatoes, red pepper, and pickling cucumbers. Since it was sweltering today, I thought it was the perfect time to use those vegetables for my version of The Pioneer Woman's Veggie and Cheese Bagel.

*please note that I am not listing amounts, just the ingredients we used to assemble the bagels

Thomas' Everything Bagels
muenster cheese
pepperjack cheese
red onion
mesclun mix (from the raised garden bed of your's truly♥)
dill pickle
Philidelphia Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread

Of course Matt had to add ham and salami to his "veggie" sandwich, but I went for straight up vegetables. Suspiciously, Matt brought home the Thomas' bagels without being asked to, so it makes me wonder if he has been spending sleepless nights scouring The Pioneer Woman's site. You be the judge. Also, if you haven't tried Garden Vegetable cream cheese, you're really missing out. It is perfect on bagels, crackers, and even as a dip for vegetables.


  1. This looks so good and given that I have not had dinner I could surely polish it off in no time. I have been on the computer for two hours trying to use a couple of gift cards and with dial up it takes forever. I am impressed with your garden skills! A green-thumb perhaps?

  2. I love the sounds of this bagelwich! Anything with muenster cheese, mayo, and cucumbers is a home run in my book. This idea will for sure make it into my lunch rotation sometime this week. Great and easy idea!
