This has been my favorite treat breakfast for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, I knew it was a good day when my family went out for breakfast at Jack's Bagels. Each of us ordered a State Street bagel with a side of home fries. As we got older, it was also a good day when we went to the grocery store to buy all the stuff to make State Streets. Long story short, I am obsessed with this bagel combo. It runs deep in my blood, my best friend's blood, and now my husband's. Make yourself one of these, and if you are lucky enough to live in Santa Barbara, head to Jack's Bagels and order one - you will not be dissapointed!
You will need:
Bagels ( I like to go for bagels out of a bakery or the fresh baked section in the store. I would avoid bagged generic bagels for this treat.)
Cream cheese ( Use regular, whipped will not cut it!)
Tomato (In my opinion, the firmer the tomato the better.)
Toast the bagel, smear on gross amounts of cream cheese, assemble the tomato and onion, now cover with TOO much lemon pepper!
