Bagel Sandwich with Turkey and Swiss Cheese
with chips / pickles
This summer meal caused quite a stir when we first shared it in 2019, with some loving the simplicity and others declaring it too simple to even need a recipe. It's time to bring back the #bagelgate debate for tonight's dinner!
Smarts: Serve chips on the side, but we wouldn't blame you a bit for adding a few to the sandwich for crunch!

Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees.
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.
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.
