Check out this fully loaded Italian style bagel sandwich for lunch!

Today I’m bringing you a sandwich that surpasses all other sandwiches, the king of sandwiches, the VIP of lunch! It’s loaded with four kinds of meat, cheese and drizzled with an Italian olive oil dressing. But I didn’t use bread to make it, well I did sort of. Are you confused? I used a bagel to build it sky high!

Dave's Killer bread Bagels make the best bagel sandwich!!

And not just any boring old bagel, this epic Italian lunch bomb is built on a bagel from Dave’s Killer Bread. So I guess you could call it a killer bagel. Because I’m already a huge fan of Dave’s Killer Bread, when I saw the new range of bagels in the store I was super excited. They come in three flavors- Plain Awesome, Cinnamon Raisin Remix and Epic Everything. You always need an everything bagel in the line up, duh! And who says bagels are only for breakfast? Actually they can be for anytime, including lunch, especially when we’re almost into full on back-to-school mode with the kids. Bagels are a great item to add to that school lunch and can be made like this Italian style or kept simpler with a spread of peanut butter and jelly or cream cheese and strawberry jam.

And I don’t know about your kids but when mine get home from school, it’s like they haven’t eaten for days! I can’t believe the amount of stuff they pull from the fridge. Another great time to have some bagels handy! Dave’s keep things simple; their breads are loaded with healthy seeds and whole grains and don’t carry any artificial anything. The bagels follow the same philosophy. They also have a new cinnamon raisin loaf, Raisin the Roof!, and can’t wait to see what they launch next! If you haven’t tried them, do it now! Go and build a giant bagel sandwich like I did, you’ll never regret it!
