Everything Bagel Turkey Sandwich Recipe

 There is such satisfaction in having a simple meal that is executed perfectly. Turkey sandwiches are a staple in the bagel community. 

This sandwich is made with turkey, cheddar, fresh heirloom tomatoes, bacon, mustard, and avocado mayonnaise, on an everything bagel. It’s the combination of many of my favorite foods, and the flavor pairings are balanced so that you can taste every ingredient. Why not use a carb that is loaded with flavor? Meat selection is important so be sure to choose your favorite one as well as your cheese selection. Thinly sliced bacon, avocado, mayonnaise, and fresh tomatoes complete the sandwich.

Leaving out the avocado mayonnaise, place it in the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese melts. During that time, mash the avocado and mayonnaise together. This step is important because slices of avocado are slippery and refuse to stay inside sandwiches. Mashing the avocado to make avocado mayo makes sure the avocado stays put.


· 3 slices of Bacon

· 2 Everything Bagels

· 6 slices of Turkey

· Cheddar Cheese

· 4 slices of Heirloom Tomato

· 1/2 an Avocado

· 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise

· Stone Ground Mustard


1. First, you need to heat your oven to prepare the bacon. Heat your oven to 375 degrees, and place three slices of bacon on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until crispy, this will take about 12 minutes. Then blot the extra grease with a paper towel and cut each slice of bacon in half.

2. Slice your bagels if they aren’t already. Start by layering 3 slices of turkey on each bagel. Add the tomatoes on top. Then add the cheese – I used Cabot’s pre-sliced cheddar which is smaller than the big slices from the deli and better suited for a bagel sandwich. I used 3 slices per sandwich.

3. Place the bagels on a parchment-lined baking sheet. I bake them without putting the top of the bagel on top of the sandwich, I leave it on the side to toast. This makes it easier to add the avocado mayo and/or mustard before serving.

4. Bake the sandwiches for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted. While the sandwiches bake, mash the avocado and mayonnaise together. Before serving the sandwiches, add a thick layer of avocado mayonnaise. If you like you can also add some stone ground mustard. Serve immediately!
