There is something very special about a soft, dense chewy bagel and matching it with cheese, isn't there? The combination of textures will satisfy. As noted earlier, thin-sliced apples can be juicy and add a crisp refreshing flavor to your bagel sandwich. You can also swap thin peaches, cucumber, figs, or even shredded carrots. Why?
