If you’re wondering what you can put on a New York–style slow-fermented bagel that your kids will devour, we’ve got five bagel-sandwich ideas that are perfect for any time a craving strikes. From sweet options to tasty twists on classics, we’ve got a bagel with your kid’s name on it!
The Choco-PB&B Bagel
Toasted plain New York–style bagel + peanut butter + sliced bananas + chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
A twist on the Elvis classic (he loved peanut butter and bananas together), this version goes all in with a smattering of chocolate chips (we suggest dark chocolate if your kids enjoy them). The chocolate will get slightly melted once it’s topped with a hot, just-toasted bagel slice. Watch them wash it down with a glass of cold milk!
Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bagel
Cinnamon New York–style bagel + Greek yogurt mixed with cream cheese + drizzle of honey + sliced bananas + sliced strawberries
All the flavours of your favourite smoothie, with the added bonus of a cinnamon-swirled New York–style bagel. We suggest you serve these open-faced.
OG Tuna Melt Bagel
Multigrain New York-style bagel + tuna + mayonnaise + Compliments Medium Cheddar Cheese Slices + sliced pear or sliced apple
Who doesn’t love a gooey sink-your-teeth-into-it tuna melt? This one’s served on a multigrain bagel, topped with tuna and cheese, then broiled in the toaster oven for a few minutes until bubbly. You’ll want to top with crisp apple or pear slices—for both a textural contrast as well as a hit of sweetness against the savoury cheddar and tuna. Balanced perfection in every bite.
Chicken Finger & Pickle Bagelwich
Sesame New York–style bagel + Compliments Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Strips + pickle-flavoured chips + shredded lettuce + Compliments Plant-Based Ranch Dressing or your favourite BBQ sauce mixed with mayo
Take chicken fingers to new bagel-worthy heights with this kid-friendly sandwich. Juicy chicken strips, crunchy pickle-flavoured chips, crisp lettuce, and a creamy topper on a sesame seed bagel. What could be better?
BBQ Chicken Pizza Bagel
Cheese New York–style bagel + chopped rotisserie chicken + your favourite Compliments BBQ Sauce + Compliments Cheddar and Part-Skim Mozzarella Shredded Cheese Blend
A classic pizza bagel gets an updated twist, using a cheese bagel, rotisserie chicken from last night’s dinner tossed with your favourite BBQ sauce and topped with shredded cheese. Serve open-faced and broil to melt the cheese until golden-brown and bubbly.
