Serves: 4 

  • 4 bagels (plain, poppy seed or sesame), split in half
  • 1/2 cup (125g) light cream cheese
  • 6 small gherkins, rinsed and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (15g) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices
  • 8 thin slices lean roast turkey breast (about 170g in total)
  • 4 slices pastrami (about 50g in total)

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Put the bagels, cut-side up, on the grill tray and grill for 3–4 minutes until golden brown and toasted.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly beat the cream cheese, gherkins and parsley together in a small bowl.
  3. Divide the cheese mixture into eight portions and spread over the toasted side of each bagel half.
  4. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each bagel, folded to fit, then top with a thick slice of tomato followed by one-quarter of the turkey and pastrami, loosely folded. Put the tops back on the bagels and press together. Cut in half to serve.
