Do you sometimes get in a lunch rut?
I know I do. Especially when it’s winter time. I usually enjoy salads or sandwiches for lunch, but when it’s cold outside I want something to warm me up. When I’m not slurping down soup, I’m enjoying these Turkey Apple Cheddar Bagel Melts.
I’ve actually been known to make myself a lunch plate that includes sliced turkey, sliced cheddar and sliced apples.
This bagel melt combines all of that onto a toasty bagel. It’s divine.
I even got fancy and threw some micro-greens on top too. I found the micro-greens by the lettuce in my grocery store’s produce section. They add some great color and flavor to this open faced bagel sandwich.
If you have some leftover turkey in the fridge still, this is a great way to use it up!
Oh and can we talk about apples?
Honey crisp apples all the way.
Is anyone else as obsessed with them as I am? If I can’t find the honey crisp variety, I’ll go with a fuji or granny smith. Either way, apples and cheese is a winning combo.
What can’t be beat are the tender insides of these Thomas Bagels. When they’re lightly toasted they have a slightly crisp outer edge with a chewy texture in the middle that’s to die for. You’ll never find my pantry without these bagels.
Whether it’s a lunch for one or a lunch for a group, these open faced bagel sandwiches will be a hit!

Not enough people know the magic of using bagels for sandwiches they really are a wonderful vehicle to build a sandwich on. I love everything beagles as the seeds and other bits add a nice accent to the sandwich. I love the fact that you used cheddar I don’t think it gets used enough in sandwiches it really is a nice addition to add a little bite to something like the turkey in this one which on its own can be a bit bland.

Such nice pictures, really make me crave this!
Yes, honey crisp are the best apples, no question! More expensive but for very good reason. 🙂 I love the sound of these bagel melts – apple and cheese are the best, especially when the cheese is melted. Thanks for sharing, Shawn!

Can you believe I’ve never had apples and cheddar in the same bite before?! I must try this!
