open-faced avocado bagelwiches for two

I'm always game for the challenge of making a yummy meal of seemingly meager refrigerator contents. I suppose some would say my own 'meager' refrigerator contents are still pretty nice, but it can still be difficult to make something quick, easy, and tasty out of leftovers, or random bits of this and that found in the kitchen. The other day my friend and I found ourselves getting hungry and lunchtime looming nearer.

Here's the story of what I did with: 1 bagel, 1 avocado, a spoonful of hummus, 1 roasted red pepper, a small bit of feta, 2 tiny pears, a sprig of cilantro, and some spring mix.

I first cut the sesame bagel in half, and toasted it to medium-toastyness. Meanwhile, I preheated the broiler in the oven, thinly sliced the avocado and red pepper. When the bagels were toasted, I spread the hummus on them, topped each half with the sliced avocado and peppers, topped with the cilantro, feta, and some salt and pepper. Put on a sheet pan and put under the broiler for about 5-10 minutes until the cheese softened and browned a bit. I put some spring mix on two plates, sliced up the pears and put those on the sides. Placed the finished bagel halves on top of the lettuce, garnished with a lemon wedge that would serve as the dressing for whatever leftover bits of sandwich fell off onto the plate. Voila! A delicious, quickie meal.
