Palm Springs Bagel

"So my sister was raving about this "amazing" open faced bagel sandwich she had the other day at this cafe. I'm not the biggest avocado fan so I was a little skeptical when she started making one for me. I must say I gladly ate my words after one bite because this is SO DELICIOUS!!! It is seriously the perfect combination so please try it!"

Ready In:
2 open faced sanwiches




  • Slice bagel in half and toast it, meanwhile you can slice up your tomato and avocado.
  • Spread each side of bagel with 1 Tbsp of cream cheese (or more if you like).
  • Top cream cheese with 1-2 tomato slices, then cover with avocado slices.
  • Finally sprinkle with with lemon pepper to your taste. I would estimate about 1/4 tsp per bagel--but I like a lot! Enjoy!
  • **Side note: you can use lime pepper seasoning instead of lemon, and you can get creative with your bagel flavors.

    Delicious combination! I also added some cucumber for a little crunch. Everything went very well together.

    Yum! This made a nice, easy lunch with things I usually have around the house. This is a new favorite for me!

    What a simple and awesome tasty bagel-wich. I didn't toast mine (had to cart it to school) but I used a poppy seed bagel, spread some creamcheese with the lemon pepper on, then the tomato, then a tad more cream cheese and lemon pepper, then the avocado-- that'll prevent it from slipping off as the last reviewer mentioned. I didn't think the flavor combo would work but it came out marvellously-- I never thought to put spices on my bagel!

    Absolutely yummy!!! I followed the recipe exactly and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. The only problem I had was keeping the avocado on the tomato on the bagel, but it was worth the "mess". Thanks for posting! Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
    This is really good!! I used an onion bagel and whipped cream cheese (my favorites) and it was excellent!! Will make again!! Made for New Kids on the Block Tag February 2010.


Lets just say I love cooking...everything from baking to grilling to microwaving :) Trying new things is always fun--not that everything turns out just as I hoped but nothings better than finding something new and unique!
