Bagel with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Provolone

5 from 1 vote

A better bagel is your path to a healthy weekday breakfast!

You know the routine. Drop by your favorite local bagel joint, and order up a dense white flour concoction, topped off with a giant schmear of your favorite “veggie” cream cheese. It’s healthy, you say? Well, we’ve got a quick and easy bagel recipe that will amp up your breakfast snack with loads more real, fresh veggies than any cream cheese might contain, replaces a high volume of low-quality cream cheese with a moderate volume of high quality Provolone, and urges you to ditch the white bagel for a whole wheat variety, with a fiber content boosted further by the addition of poppy seeds and sesame seeds.

First, choose your bagels wisely. Is the first ingredient on the package “whole grain”? That’s a great start. And if this bagel is coated with fiber-rich, nutritious seeds, that’s another bonus. Traditional bagels don’t contain a lot of nutrients per calorie, but a well-chosen bagel can give you a nutritional boost!

Selecting your toppings wisely can drastically reduce the amount of fat and calories you consume with your morning bagel, and, we promise, will taste a lot better than the stale toppings available at your local bagel chain. Add a few slices of mellow Provolone cheese to your bagel for protein and gooey cheesy goodness. Then top with sundried tomatoes and basil, two ingredients that complement one another perfectly. The antioxidants and vitamins in each bring the nutrient value of this breakfast to the next level!

    1. Jessa, We don’t have a bagles recipe yet, but good idea! 🙂 Whatever cheese you prefer. I might try feta crumbles. 🙂

  1. Hi: Hope to see a Skinnyms bagels recipe :-). After so much search and research I finally found Provolone Cheese … my local vegetable store They are Italians but they do not carried it always, so feta crumbles are going to be my second best choice. Sometimes is hard to find some of the ingredients listed in the recipes, here in Oz but thanks to Skinnyms Team I can always manage. Yas are the best !!!
    Thank you thank you

  2. Amazing, comforting and not heavy ! I love this idea for my bagel to get rid of the cream cheese. Ive had a hard time ditching the plain bagel so this whole wheat bagel recipe helped tremendously. I added Turkey bacon but could definitely go without!5 stars
