1 - Spread top of each bagel half with 1 tablespoon sauce. Top with approximately 3 tablespoons cooked ground beef. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cheese.
2 - Place bagels on cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
3 - Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bagel is golden brown. (Or, place bagel in 400°F (205°C) toaster oven for 10 minutes.)
Makes 4 servings.
Tip: Especially for the kids - Ask mom or dad to cook an extra pound of lean ground beef ahead of time. After drippings are poured off, separate the ground beef into four plastic baggies and keep in the freezer. These can be taken out of the freezer, reheated in the microwave, and used in this recipe for a short cut.
