Cool as a Cucumber Sandwich

Serves 1

We loved the name of this cool sammy that Holly sent us. It’s super easy to make and a filling lunch box treat.


  • 1 whole wheat bagel
  • Light cream cheese
  • 4-6 cucumber slices
  • 2 big pinchfuls of alfalfa sprouts


  1. Split the bagel in half and toast – ask a grown-up helper (GH) to help slice the bagel, if you need it.
  2. When the bagel cools, spread your desired amount of cream cheese on both slices.
  3. Put cucumbers on one bagel half.
  4. Top with sprouts and put the halves together.
