I like using sesame bagels with this flavor combination the best but plain bagels are good too. The amount of cucumber and radishes you use for this recipe will depend on how much each person likes to load their bagels ;-) Also, using a mandolin slicer is perfect for slicing the radishes and cucumber. Any unused cream cheese can be stored, refrigerated, for up to a week.

Thoroughly mix the cream cheese and cilantro.
Spread the inside of both sides of each bagel, top the bottom side of each bagel with cucumber and radish slices, top with top side of bagel and serve.

I love the flavor combination of the ingredients for this sandwich and usually switch up how much of some of the ingredients used and hence why I suggest 'to taste'. Okay, I also happen to slather my bagels with the cream cheese mixture so please feel free to cut those amounts, or increase, if need be too.
Mix together the cream cheese, feta and garlic in a small bowl, spread the cream cheese mixture on both bagel halves, top one of the halves tomato, cucumber and onion slices, sprinkle with basil, top with the other bagel half and serve.

Here are questions related to Recipes Using Bagels.
I'm looking for ways to use bagels that are a few days old. Has anyone used them in a breakfast casserole type of a recipe or bread pudding or stuffing, etc.? I'd love to have recipes or direct me to a Website that might have some ideas.
Please help, me as I'm trying to be frugal on a limited income.

Yo, Me too! I need a way to use these bagels, because I get at least two dozen a day for free! maybe improvisational cooking could be in order.
My daughter has just come back from a trip to New York and brought me back a bag of New York bagels. I put them in the freezer but I have no idea what to do with them. How do you eat them, toasted or no? Do you put fillings in between or just toppings on each half? I'm vegetarian, please could anybody tell me what to do with them? They are just plain bagels with poppy seeds on top.

You CAN defrost bagels successfully in the microwave. Just pop them into an Eco-bag for about 35-40 seconds. You can get one of these handy defrost bags, also good for defrosting slices of bread, burritos etc. from the folks at www.itskitch.com
