This turkey bagel sandwich makes a delicious lunch! It’s quick, easy, satisfying, and packed with veggies. Start by generously smearing a toasted asiago cheese bagel with whipped chive and onion cream cheese. Then, pile it high with turkey, tomato, cucumber, spinach, and spouts. It’s my absolute favorite turkey bagel. I know you’ll love it too!
This turkey bagel was inspired by the Tasty Turkey bagel sandwich at Einstein Bros. Bagels. It was one of my go-to lunches in college when I had an Einstein’s outside my dorm. Back in the day, they used sprouts on the bagel. So that’s how I still make them.
These are easy to make at home with my double-whipped chive and onion cream cheese.
Asiago cheese bagel. You can use an everything bagel or a plain bagel if you prefer.
Double whipped, chive and onion cream cheese. I make my own. It’s super easy, quick, and uses simple ingredients! You can also find premade spread in the grocery store with regular cream cheese.
Oven-roasted sliced turkey breast. Use your favorite sliced deli-style turkey. Or, you can use leftover slices of smoked turkey breast. Got leftover carved turkey from Thanksgiving? You can use that!
Baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, and alfalfa sprouts piled high on this bagel sandwich. They give it plenty of crunch, color, and flavor. I love getting a hefty serving of veggies on a lunch sandwich! You can use any crisp leafy lettuce instead of the alfalfa sprouts.
How to make a tasty turkey bagel sandwich
First, toast your bagel. Then, use a bread knife to cut it in half.
Give both sides a generous schmear of chive and onion cream cheese.
Then, add the spinach and tomatoes
Then the cucumbers.
Next, it’s turkey time.
Top it off with a handful of alfalfa sprouts. I’m in love with the texture that these guys add.
Now, top it off. Stand back and admire this beauty. Drool over it. Take a picture. Write a love ballad…
If you like, wrap the whole gal up with parchment paper and use a serrated bread knife to cut it in half.
Just look at that cross section. She’s gorgeous!
