Bacon ‘n’ Egg Bagels

Better than fast-food fare, these savory sandwiches with veggie cream cheese and zesty olives will have mouths watering in the morning. “For a change of pace, prepare them with other cream cheeses or speed things up by using precooked bacon warmed in the microwave,” advise Chris and Jenny Thackray of Corpus Christi, Texas.

    I leave out the pimento-stuffed Olives. This recipe has become a favorite at our house, one I often turn to when I can't decide what to fix. We love it! I have fixed it by cooking up the bacon first, and also simply reheated pre-cooked bacon to save time. Using the pre-cooked bacon, it is a standby quick meal at our house.
