Unfortunately I didn't have a chace to take pictures, but the RAs made some delicicous (and EASY) bagel concoctions.
- Mini bagels, cut in half
- Cream cheese
- Tomato, sliced
- Grated cheese blend (like a bag of Kraft)
Lay out bagel halves on a cookie sheet. Spread with 1 T of cream cheese. Then spread with 1 T of pesto. Cover with a slice of tomato. Sprinkle each bagel with a little cheese. Place sheet in the oven on low heat (300F-350F) until cheese on top melts.
I was happy with the taste and texture of the little appetizer. However, I think this is one of those meals that could benefit from being "healthified." I think if I made it, I might substitue whole wheat mini bagels, low fat cream cheese, and low fat 1% grated cheese. Even the pesto could be substituted for some lemon pepper, as one of the cooks said. If anything, the substitutions might make the dish even more delicious.
