What better way to start your day than with a toasted everything bagel with mashed avocado, cheese, fried egg, tempeh or bacon, and sprouts? Don’t forget the seasoning! Add some Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel seasoning on your egg or just salt and pepper for a classic taste. 


For lunch have a savory bagel like poppyseed with hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and peppers. Other great bagel flavors include herbed bagels like dried tomato and basil, rosemary and thyme, oregano, or garlic and sea salt!


Try half a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese, peanut butter, sliced banana, and extra raisins! Add a dash more cinnamon on top of the cream cheese for heightened flavor. 


Have a seeded or pumpernickel bagel with roasted eggplant or a bean burger. Top with feta cheese or vegan herbed cream cheese spread, spinach, and roasted red pepper and garlic aioli. Yum! 


Have half of a chocolate chip bagel with nut butter or Nutella and fresh raspberries. Top with shredded coconut or extra chocolate chips!
