Bagels are such a easy and fast weekday morning breakfast. When I was a kid, my dad got us up for breakfast before school, and I remember he always had a Lender’s® Bagels every morning for his breakfast. Every time we went grocery shopping, I would help my mom find his bagels in the refrigerated dairy section, and they had to be Lender’s® Bagels.
Now with my own family, I find these are some of my favorites as well. I love that it’s a quick kid-friendly breakfast, too. Lender’s® Bagels are the perfect on-the-go breakfast, and they are just so versatile. You can make them with so many toppings from cheese and turkey to just plain toasted with some Smart Balance® Buttery Spread. You can find both in the refrigerated dairy section which is right where I found them at Walmart.
One of my family’s favorite ways to have our Lender’s® Bagels in the morning is as Easy Caprese Bagels, toasted with some Smart Balance® Buttery Spread along with slices of fresh marinated mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes. You will not believe how delicious this is. My teens have been asking for this breakfast every day for a week now. Here’s how to quickly make it:
Spread a light layer of Smart Balance® Buttery Spread on each half of the bagel.
Next, slice up some marinated mozzarella cheese balls and place them on each half of the bagel. Then, top with some shredded sun dried tomatoes. I like to buy my sun dried tomatoes already julienned so breakfast can be quick.
Next, I toast them for just a couple of minutes to crisp up the outside of the bagel halves and warm up the cheese. I don’t wait until the cheese is completely melted before pulling it out.
Breakfast is served in under five minutes with these Easy Caprese Bagels! I’ve been loving this breakfast as much as the kids. As soon as I get home from dropping everyone off, I make my own. If you have some fresh spinach in the fridge, it’s delicious to add along with the cheese and tomatoes.
