I have been going a bit crazy over bagels recently after a good experience that I had. A great bagel shop opened up in our town recently called the Kinetic Bagel Institute. Last week we stopped by and got a dozen bagels of different varieties. Every single bagel was fresh and delicious, and the prices were reasonable too.
One of the bagels that was quite fascinating for me was called the “everything bagel.” The inside texture was soft but it had a delightfully crunchy exterior made with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, and minced dried onion.
I used the everything bagels to make turkey sandwiches with a special homemade chipotle sauce. Please find the recipe for the sauce elsewhere on my blog. In addition to the turkey and chipotle pepper sauce, I used avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes. Maybe you have a local bagel shop that you need to visit to reignite a love for bagels. If you do, please try this recipe and let me know how you like it.
- 4 each everything spiced bagel, sliced
- Butter to spread on bagel
- 1/2 cup chipotle pepper sauce
- 1 cup mashed avocado, 2 medium
- 1 1/2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- Spring mix or red leaf lettuce
- 1 large tomato, sliced (8 pieces)
- Thinly sliced red onion (optional)
- 16 pieces deli sliced turkey
Mixed mashed avocados, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
Spread butter over the cut sides of the bagel. Toast the bagel halves until lightly brown.
To assemble the sandwiches, spread the bottom halves of the toasted bagels with a generous amount of chipotle pepper sauce. Then, divide the mashed avocado mixture evenly between the 4 top halves of the bagels, spreading evenly.
Add spring mix and red onion (if you are using) to the bottom halves of the bagels and top with tomatoes 2 slices on each sandwich and 4 slices of deli turkey, making sure to fold the turkey pieces to fit the bagel nicely.
Finish the sandwich with the top halves of the bagels and serve immediately. Enjoy these sandwiches with a wedge of pickles and chips of your choice!
