Tomato Basil Avocado Bagels aka Love On A Bagel

by Destri on August 24, 2010

If you are lucky, your tomatoes are just now coming on, or at the very least your neighbor’s are, or they are overflowing at your local farmers market.  Anyway you get ‘em…you have to try this.  So so good.  My husband and I stopped by a cafe last week and ordered what they called a tomato and avocado bagel for a snack, and neither of us can quit thinking of it.  It’s one thing for me to love something, I always get excited about food, but when my hubbs gets excited, you know it’s a keeper.

Start with a slightly toasted bagel – I used mini wheat bagels.   Smear on as much cream cheese as you are comfortable with, then layer on a healthy dose of smashed avocado, followed by a leaf or two of fresh basil.  Then top it with a tomato (sliced) that has not stepped foot into a refrigerator…seriously not even for a second, that is like death for a tomato.  Sprinkle on some kosher or sea salt and some freshly cracked pepper….and that my friends is love on a bagel.

I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snack……

What do you do with your garden tomatoes?  I would love to hear your ideas.  I had stuffed and roasted tomatoes once that were to die for, anyone have a good recipe for that?
