Canadian Bacon, Bagel, and Green Pepper Sandwiches

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sidMILB

I think my mom got this from a Pilsbury cookbook, but my sis and I both remember it fondly and make it for our appreciative boyfriends. Very easy to modify the spread, meat or vegetable to get a different taste (ex: roasted red pepper, feta and turkey).

Although I didn't make this exactly as written, I believe I remained true to the spirit of the recipe, particularly since it is so flexible. I used whole wheat bagel thins, which I toasted in the toaster and then buttered. I then proceeded as directed, using a marbled Colby Jack cheese. The sandwich was super tasty and so easy to put together. I will definitely be playing with this some more, but I do have to say that the green pepper and mushrooms are a great feature. Thanks for sharing this family favorite. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
