Pizza Bagels

I have not blogged in a long time...July was my month of travels, and I was up and down the East coast, from a Bahamas cruise to Hilton Head to Boston. And even though we've been back for a week, the dinners at the Trecida house have been pretty unexciting because I haven't gotten paid for 2 months so we're eating cheap! But now that the summer is over and I'm back to work hopefully the food will get more interesting around here.

Tonight, though, we had a dinner that shows that cheap eats can still be delish. There is a great bagel/sandwich shop in Tallahassee called Bagel, Bagel that we hit up every time we go up for an FSU game. Back in my college days I didn't eat sandwiches (I was weird, I know) so I always got their pizza bagel. This is my re-creation. The topping ideas for this are endless, this is just what we used.

Pizza Bagels

2 bagels, toasted
cream cheese
favorite jarred sauce (I used Newman's Own Marinara)
sliced tomatoes
meat of choice (I used ham)
Italian seasoning
mozzarella or provolone cheese slices

Preheat oven to 375. Spread each toasted bagel half with cream cheese. Spoon on sauce. Add meat and slices of tomato, sprinkle with Italian seasoning and top with cheese slice. Place on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
