  1. Make aioli - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating first.) Whisk together mustard, honey, and mayonnaise. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Onions / Tomatoes / Bagels (if not pre-sliced) - Prep as directed.


  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees.
  2. Separate bagels and spread out in a single layer on a sheet pan, cut-side up. Top bottom half of each bagel with turkey and then cheese. Bake in the oven until cheese is melted and top half of bagels are lightly toasted, ~10 minutes.
  3. Finish sandwiches by adding spinach, onions, tomatoes, and honey mustard aioli (or set the toppings out and customize sandwiches at the table). Enjoy chips and pickles on the side.

I loved this. Simple and fast, and so yummy. We had it for lunch the next day too. I subbed havarti.

I really liked this overall - it's simpler than the usual Cooksmarts meal but still fancier than a sandwich I'd throw together on my own. This popped up on the menu just as I was coming back from a week out of town, so it was great to have a quick and easy homemade meal option waiting for me!

Yummy and quick for summer. We had some extra squash so I made squash chips and also made homemade bagels. We also had some leftover cucumber salad, so I gave people a choice between that and pickles for their side. Will make again, and may make a batch of the sauce to put on other sandwiches or to use as a veggie dip.

A nice reminder that dinner doesn't have to be complicated. I used greek yogurt (and a pinch of salt) instead of mayo in the aioli and it was really good!
