Make the sandwich toppings that your family or guests will most enjoy. Be creative, or enlist the help of your children! Try cream cheese and cucumber, peanut butter and jelly, chicken salad, or tuna salad prepared in your favorite way!
For Annabel Karmel's egg salad: mix the hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise and snipped chives, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Then, to make the snake: slice the bagels in half and then cut each half down the center to form a semicircle. Cut out the head of the snake from one of the pieces of bagel, and the tail from another. Spread your toppings over the bagels. Decorate the egg salad with strips of chives arranged in a crisscross pattern. Place halved cherry tomatoes on top of chicken or tuna salad. Use a fork to make a crisscross pattern in pb & j and create scales with thinly sliced cucumbers over cream cheese. Arrange the bagels to form the body of the snake. Next, attach the head to the snake's body and use two slices of a stuffed (or plain) olive to form the eyes. Cut out a forked tongue from the strip of bell pepper.
You can obviously make this remarkable reptile as long as you like. Just add more bagels and toppings!
