Nutritional Yeast Layered Bagel Sandwich (oh yeah)

I’m not really a sandwich person. They are typically boring and the textures are just…mush. But I’ve been on a bagel kick lately (I like this kind) and it’s amazing how the bread can make or break a sandwich. Don’t you agree?

You know what else makes or breaks a sandwich? Condiments. Problem is, I’m not a mayo or a mustard person. I like condiments like hummus, pesto or something equally delicious. Favorite condiment of late? Nutritional yeast (NY). Let me show you.

(Side note: If you are new to nutritional yeast, I talk about it more on this post. Long story short, it has a cheesy flavor and it’s a good source of protein and b-vitamins.)

Anyway, back to the bagel sandwich. So, take a bagel, toast it, top with some raw spinach, and sprinkle some NY on top. (Doesn’t everyone store N.Y. in old sorbet containers?)DSC_0092.NEF

Next up, a fresh-out-of-the-pan poke & spread egg, then more NY.DSC_0094.NEF

Then some tomato slices and salt and pepper. DSC_0098.NEF

Then – you guessed it – more nutritional yeast.DSC_0101.NEF

Toss the bagel lid on there and you’ve got yourself a nutritionally packed powerhouse.DSC_0104.NEF

(Once it was assembled, I tossed it in the microwave for about 10 seconds to help the nutritional yeast soak into the layers a bit so it wasn’t too dusty.)

Even Maizey was stunned that I was eating and enjoying a sandwich.DSC_0112.NEF

Do you like mustard?

What’s your favorite non-traditional condiment?

    This is a great idea. I lived off of pitas with one egg and sprouts but always melted provolone on it. I just wish there was a good way to transport egg sandwiches to work… I’m guessing a few hours in the fridge would not be too delicious.
    Also, mayo creeps me out. Eggs and vinegar? Just seems wrong.

    I hate mayo and mustard too! I like hummus and mashed avocado as my condiments 🙂

    I love mustard, and I’m also completely obsessed with chili garlic sauce (especially mixed with tahini)

    I love mustard! Plain ol’ yellow mustard. But I do agree, hummus and pesto do make a better “spread” options for sandwiches. I love this new way to eat NY!

    Egg Sammies are on a whole different level right? Yum! I adore mustard, when I was little I use to just eat mustard by the spoonful. And now I just discovered Cranberry Honey Mustard and I think I need to break out my spoon once again.

    I like mustard but only the boring yellow kind. I don’t like spicy or dijon. I think my favorite condiment is hummus. Is hummus a condiment?

    Mmm, I have such a thing for bagel sandwiches. Not so much sandwiches on bread, but I adore them on bagels. Yours looks like something I would love!

    I also love mustard and mayonnaise, but favorite non-traditional condiment is probably a roasted red pepper spread that they have at my favorite sandwich place in Boulder, CO. I also like cream cheese on my veggie sandwiches. (Great, now I’m hungry for a sandwich at 7:30 in the morning. ;-))

    I never met a condiment I didn’t like. I actually love different kinds of mustard (I have about 6 different kinds in my fridge right now) but I really love things like pesto and hummus too.

    I love all kind of mustards. I usually stick with pretty basic condiments. I guess my favorite are baconnaise and garlic powder 🙂

    I used to hate mustard – but now I like it…zesty/spicy mustard rocks.
    And I love love love using pesto or hummus as a condiment. But I use way more hummus than is allowed if you’re going to call it a condiment. My favorite hummus these days is TJs white bean and basil – tastes just like pesto!

    What a remarkable idea. I will have to try NY on a sandwich…I love it on popcorn. Also, it’s good on a green salad, no?

    Both yellow mustard and mayo gross me out, too. I like dijon mustard for salad dressings, but that’s about it.

    I’m a big fan of Mediterranean-type condiments for sandwiches: hummus, olive spreads, red pepper spreads, pestos. We also go through a lot of Sriracha hot sauce in my house.

    I have an irrational hatred and fear of mustard. Yuck.

    I love your blog though 🙂 And I love your pup…I think you’ve started me on a boxer obsession. I’ve been thinking about adopting one to keep my lab pup company!

    Nooch is totally under-utilized in my house–I just forget that I have it! Thanks for the reminder.

    I ordered a sandwich with “mayo-pesto” on it the other day and it was AMAZING! I like to add hummus or tzatiki or something like that to my sandwichs too 🙂

    Oh yes. I do like mustard. Mustard of all types: spicy, honey, traditional, stone ground, etc. They’re all so good and a favorite addition to my sandwiches.

    My fave non-traditional condiment would probably Parmesan cheese. I put it on almost everything, even sandwiches and Mexican dishes. I can’t get enough of the stuff!
