Ham, Bacon and Cheese Bagel Snacks

I woke up Saturday morning, watched a few cooking shows while I sipped on my hot cup of coffee and lounged around for a few hours.  By the time noon came around, I was hungry and I wanted a quick and easy lunch.
I grew up eating Bagel Bites and I loved them.  This is my grown up version of those delicious mini bagel snacks.  Instead of using mini bagels, I used small bagels.  They are between the size of mini and regular.  I used Mayonnaise as the binder, just like in this Olive Cheese Bread and these Muffin Melts.  I have now made these several times and I love them.    
 They are perfect for breakfast, lunch, an after-school snack or even dinner.  

They take minutes to throw together and then they are baked until the cheese is melty and bubbly and absolute perfection.

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture) 

3/4 c. diced deli ham
1/3 c. bacon crumbles or 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. grated Cheddar or Monterey cheese
1/2 c. mayonnaise (I use light)
1/2 tsp. Johnny's garlic seasoning (or garlic powder)
1/8 tsp. onion powder, opt.
finely chopped green onions, for garnish
4 small bagels, split

In a medium bowl combine the ham, bacon, cheese, mayonnaise, Johnny's garlic seasoning and onion powder.  Spread mixture over bagel halves and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  If you want a crispier bagel: bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes and then broil for 2-3 minutes.  If you want a less crunchy bagel: broil for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.  Garnish with green onions, if desired, and serve.   

Jenn's Notes: I buy a big bag of Bacon Crumbles from Costco and that is what I like to use, because it is so much easier than cooking bacon.
