These guys go great with bowl of soup or paired with a healthy fat for a weekend snack. Whole grains (like the rye or whole wheat bagels) plus a protein or healthy fat make a perfect snack. Try a bagel chip with sliced turkey or almond butter to get you from lunch to dinner.
Cabot Creamery sent me Sharp Extra Light (75% reduced fat) cheese to play around with. It has a mildly sharp flavor, shreds really easily and melts and browns like a cheese should. I like using full fat cheese when I'm not using a lot - like grating fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano on top of pasta. But, when I need a lot of cheese, like for a lasagna or these cheese bagels, I like to use (or mix in) some reduced fat cheese.
Ingredients: bagels, apples (sliced), shredded cheese
