What could be nicer on a raison and cinnamon bagel than butter? A hot toasted bagel with butter melting onto it with a hint of cinnamon and juicy raisins when you bite into it? Butter was the perfect topping. I did wonder about adding bananas and honey or other exotic toppings but the butter was ideal. I loved eating these for breakfast, they set up up for the morning.
In a bowl I mixed up some cooked chicken, chopped up pieces of bacon and sweetcorn with mayonnaise. Add this to a bagel and finished with some mixed salad leaves and you have a lovely snack for lunch. I used Warburtons plain bagels which set the filling off perfectly. Be warned though this filling is highly addictive and you will want more. A carrot and raisin salad would be perfect served alongside.
If you are hungry in the morning these make an ideal breakfast. Toast a bagel, fry up some bacon and scramble the eggs. Chop the bacon into small pieces and add to the egg. Spread a little butter on the bagel and top with the bacon and egg mixture. Some black pepper and salt can be added as seasoning. Be warned though, they are very filling. If you are planning on going out for the day these would be a perfect breakfast.
