Have you ever looked down at your bagel, smeared with quietly dignified cream cheese, maybe topped off with a little bit of lox or onion, and wished that it could offer you...more? Like, for instance, a bunch of Doritos?

Here's a beautiful thing to consider: No one is stopping from you from putting all kinds of insane junk on your bagel. It's YOUR bagel. You can do WHATEVER YOU WANT.

Just think about the possibilities. Cheese and crackers...ON A BAGEL.

If you don't know about the tangy magic of pimiento cheese, you should! And you might as well make your own, because it's so easy.

7. The Hot Guac Bagel

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

8. The Upgraded PB&J Bagel

Peanut butter is a beautiful thing, but...so is candy. And sugary cereal.

9. The Pork & Beans Bagel

It's all about that textural contrast.

10. The Peanut Butter Puff Bagel

11. The Onion Lover's Bagel

The foundation of this should (obviously) be an onion bagel.

12. The Movie Matinee Bagel

Goobers (chocolate-covered peanuts) >>> Raisinettes, but you do you.

13. The Pregnancy Craving Bagel
