I scream, you scream, we all scream for … bagels?

You heard us. These slices of heaven are this season’s “it” food. Need a quick breakfast on your way to class? Bagel. Out of regular ol’ bread and in the mood for a mega veggie burger? Bagel. Up late cramming for an exam and need something to munch on? B-A-G-E-L. Next time your tummy starts growling, break the monotony—vegan cream cheese isn’t the only thing that pairs well with these guys!

Here are our seven favorite bagel combos…

1. Classic Peanut Butter and Banana Bagel

This new spin on a classic sammie will leave you wishing you’d thought up this one sooner. Want to sweeten it up a bit? Drizzle on some agave syrup. Trust us—you won’t regret it.

2. Mega Veggie Burger Bagel

Whether you’re still working on getting a veggie burger added to your school’s cafeteria or you’re just in the mood to whip up a burger at home, you’re going to want to try this! Just grab your favorite veggie burger (try Gardein, Amy’s, or Boca brands) and add tomato, lettuce, ketchup, and mustard to a toasted bagel. Et voilà!

3. Ol’ Fashioned Deli Bagel

You don’t have to stop by the neighborhood deli to enjoy a great vegan turkey sandwich. Pick up your fave vegan deli slices (try Tofurky brand), some Vegenaise, and your fave sammie toppings, and dig in!

4. Tofu Scramble Bagel

Sure, tofu scramble is traditionally eaten at breakfast, but forget tradition! Whip up your own tasty tofu scramble, toss in some veggies like spinach and tomatoes, and BOOM—instant breakfast/lunch/dinner/fourth meal. 

5. Straight-Up Hummus Bagel

You didn’t think we’d forget about the big H, did ya? If you’re lookin’ to put an extra kick into your hummus-packed bagels, try adding tomato as well as lemon juice–soaked arugula and basil. 

6. Extreme Green Breakfast Bagel

Don’t let the “breakfast” in this title throw you off. Sure, this is packed with a ridic amount of protein and other nutrients to give your brain the kickstart it needs first thing in the morning, but there are definitely zero rules against whipping this up in the middle of the night when you’re cramming for that big exam. Start with a tofu egg, then add pesto, sautéed kale, and tomato. 

7. Bacon Avocado Bagel

Need we say more? Pick up some tempeh bacon from the store (try Tofurky brand) and an avocado or two, and top it all off with tofu eggs.
