Bagel Cheese Melt

Having lot of leftover bagels? Can’t eat them with cream cheese, try this.. My kids call this bagel pizza :). We were watch the NBA basketball game, in the weekend did not have dinner ready. Bagel cheese melts was a quick fix for dinner. It is was filling and I got to sneak in some veggies for the kids which they ate without any cribbing..

Turn on the oven and set it to Broil.
Slit the bagel into half.
Apply a thin layer of pesto (optional: we are pesto lovers, hence added this layer 🙂 )

Sprinkle some salt and pepper for taste.
Arrange 4 baby spinach leaves and top it with pepper jack cheese slice.
Slide it in the middle rack of the oven and let cook for 2-3 mins till the cheese melts.
Note: if you like your cheese to brown let sit for another 1-2 mins in the oven.
