Winston (Style) Bagel

"If you have spent a late night at SIU Carbondale, you have probably paid a visit to Winston the Bagel Man. He is a fabulous fellow with a bagel cart who grills up (YES, GRILLS UP) the most wonderful bagel creations you can imagine. This is my humble version of his masterpiece. . .it's not as good as the original but it is a tribute to Winston and my college years joyfully spent."

directions

  • Split your bagel in half and grill (or toast in the toaster if you must) til warm and light brown.
  • Slather each side with a little butter, then cream cheese, then 10 raisins on each bagel, then sunflower seeds. Top cucumber, sprouts, bacon bits, then apple and sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
  • As an adult, I now eat my bagel open faced, however the original is served sandwich style.
  • NOTE: In true Winston fashion, I must tell you that he would make your bagel with any combo of ingredients you wished. Sometimes I added bacon bits and sweet onion to my combo above. . .depended on how many drinks I had that night LOL. He also offers garlic powder, but that never fit with my chosen combo.

    A pizza pizzaz is also a great way to toast up Winston-style bagels :)
