Mini-bagel Pizzas

What is it about lunch that drives me batty?  It's hard enough to plan dinners and shop for those, but then these kids want to eat lunch, too!?  The nerve.  After about five years of rotating through pb&j, chicken nuggets, and mac & cheese out of a box, I just couldn't take it anymore.

Here's an easy lunch that doesn't make me sad, unlike having to eat goldfish crackers.  Again.

Yes, I'm a bad photographer.  That's why this isn't a photography blog.

Mini-bagel Pizzas

1 bag of mini-bagels (I used whole-wheat ones from Trader Joes)
1 can of pizza sauce
sliced salami/pepperoni (or veg, whatever you like)
sliced or shredded cheese (I used provolone, because that's what I had)

Slice the mini-bagels and put on a cookie sheet that you've sprayed w non-stick spray.  Top the bagels w a spoonful of sauce, meat, and cheese.  Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes until the cheese starts to brown.

So easy, the kids can make it.

I know; this isn't really much of a recipe.  It's really meant to remind me, and maybe you, that lunch can still be easy, and tasty.  This is also good with English muffins.

What are your go-to kid-friendly lunches?  Share in the comments!


  1. Lunch is not my favorite either. I make these, too, but with rolls from Costco. I also have started making soup for lunch. I make a ton and then I don't have to make dinner. Win!

  2. These are also good on hoagie rolls or hot dog buns or any other bread that you need to use asap before the mold sets in.

    And I hate lunch too. Why can't these kids understand that yes, popcorn can be an entire meal???

    1. Popcorn is totally acceptable! We've had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But not all on the same day.


I am very needy. I need your comments.
