I’m still in the mood for less meat and lots of veggies. And I’m always craving avocado and cheese. Two of my favorite things. Soft chewy whole wheat bagels top the favorites list as well. Basically, I love everything about this sandwich. It’s filling and good for me. And it’s user friendly. Anyone can toast a bagel, slather it in stone-ground mustard, and pile it high (in no particular order) with veggies and cheese. The hardest part is keeping it in one piece while slicing and eating. The tomato is slippery and slivers of cucumber like to slide out the sides. Otherwise- super easy.
