Bagels are a firm favourite and make for a great lunch any day of the week. Lather with cream cheese and top with crispy bacon and char-grilled tomatoes.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and add the bacon. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden. Add the tomato slices and cook for 1 minute on each side until slightly charred and softened.
Meanwhile, lightly toast the bagels under the grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.
Spread the base of each bagel with the cream cheese and add a sprinkling of black pepper. Cut the bacon rashers in half and lay over the cream cheese. Top with the sliced tomato and remaining halves of the bagels. Serve immediately.
