Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Savory Spinach & Tomato Sesame Bagel | No Thanks to Cake

A few garden-fresh additions make this breakfast a fancy brunch-style meal.



  • Defrost your bagel by setting it out on the counter the night before or defrosting in the microwave.
  • Add your garlic and onion to a skillet prepared with cooking spray, stirring frequently and avoid burning them (1-2 minutes.)  Add your spinach and cook until spinach is completely wilted.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. Note:  1 cup of spinach will cook down significantly.  Add more spinach if desired.
  • Salt and pepper your tomatoes, and add them to the same pan.  After 2-3 minutes (or once caramelization begins), flip your tomatoes.  Cook on the other side until done.  Remove from the pan.
  • Toast your bagel in the toaster on a medium setting until golden brown.
  • Top your bagel with the spinach mixture, and the tomatoes.  Serve and enjoy!
