Busy Day Bagel Sandwich

Busy days call for easy lunches. This recipe can't get any easier. The boring bagel and cream cheese can easily be spiced up and revamped to become a tasty lunch.

Take your bagel and cream cheese (I like whole wheat.)
(I love Tofutti or Russ and Daughters tofu cream cheese.)
Drizzle some olive oil on top of the bagel, spread the cheese, add some salt and pepper.
Next the toppings:
Combine any and all of the following!
sliced red onion
sliced apple
romaine lettuce
sliced tomato
sliced pear
sliced mushrooms
spread pumpkin butter
spread cherry or cranberry sauce
sliced avocado
sliced radishes
...and anything else in your kitchen!

The funnest part is using your creativity to customize your bagel to suit your tastes. Bagels are much more forgiving than sandwich bread for experimentation. Bagels hold heartier ingredients and won't wilt in the face of...a lot of toppings!
